12G/3G/HD Video Router with Optional Processing and MADI Support

EQT-1616-3G-C is a revolutionary design enclosed in a compact 1RU frame, capable of high-level integrated functionalities and routing of up to 16 input and 16 output 12Gbps signals, uses unique serviceable rear modules, on serviceable sub modules. This is a compact feature full routing solution with redundant power supplies, designed with mission-critical 24/7 applications in mind.

EQT-1616-3G-C uses format-independent data paths to support digital signals from 1.5Gbps to 12Gbps. It boasts forward-looking hardware to support integrated functionalities, such as multiplexing single-link 4K to quad-link UHD and de-multiplexing quad-link UHD to single-link UHD.

Among these functionalities, clean and quiet switching is an enable key-feature that provides for all 16 outputs seamless video and "popless" audio switching. This is ideal for use in master control UHD applications as a bypass router, or as a simple Master Control router itself, supporting two quad-link UHD deterministically routed or 4 single-link UHD clean and quiet switching paths.

MADI is another enable key-feature, which activates 64 channels of MADI audio, allowing them to be shuffled into the 16 output video bus as embedded audio and vice-versa.

The EQT-1616-3G-C can be controlled by Evertz' customizable front panel CP-2402E, remote CP's and magnum over Ethernet, Serial and GPIO ports as well. It is also VistaLINK® PRO capable, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
