Product ManualManual

The EQX family has many I/O options as well a number of frame sizes to fit your needs. The 10RU frame supports 180x180 or 180x360 using double-density outputs (plus X-LINK outputs). The half-sized 16RU frame supports 288x288 or 288x576 using double-density outputs (plus X-LINK outputs). The full-sized 26RU frame will support 576x576 or 576x1152 using double-density outputs (plus X-LINK outputs). The traditional EQX is a very compact solution, perfect for trucks, mobile applications or areas where space is a concern. We also offer multi-frame configurations for 1152x1152 and larger systems, square and rectangular sizes. The multi-frame systems can provide a full path redundancy within and between the frames. There are many I/O options including audio embedding and de-embedding available on all I/O at the same time, plus external discrete audio with our integrated EMR-AUDIO routing - that's over 30K x 30K unblocking audio routing.

EQX Input & Output Gateway Module

EQX-IP18-IPG is an 18-channel hybrid EQX input module that provides existing or new EQX routers with the ability to bridge to the IP world. This IP gateway module is fully-featured with the ability to encapsulate and de-encapsulate video signals over IP. Eighteen inputs to the router can be selected from either baseband inputs or 10GbE IP sources, and each input has a frame sync designed to re-time the input video signal to the EQX frame reference signal. The EQX-IP18-IPG can also de-embed audio from the selected 18x input video signals for packetized TDM audio routing.

EQX Input Module

EQX-IP18FSAD-3G is an 18-channel EQX input module with built-in standard video frame sync and audio de-embedding capabilities, with an option to add audio re-embedding capabilities. This module is designed to re-time a SMPTE ST 292M or SMPTE ST 259M input to a local reference signal. When necessary, frames are repeated or dropped to maintain synchronization. This module has the ability to loop back the 18x synced inputs to 18x outputs when the coax rear plate is in use.

EQX Input & Output 4GB Modules

EQX-IP18-4GB is an EQX input module comprised of 4x 12G-SDI or 18x 3G-SDI channels of adaptive cable equalization which feed the incoming signal directly through to the crosspoint modules. This module has been designed to work with all existing and new 3G EQX routers. It can accommodate 4K/UHD signals over a single 12G-SDI interface (fiber or coax) that will translate into four consecutive 2sI 3G-SDI input streams to be freely routed within the 3G router core and sent to standard 3G VIPs over X-LINK.
