Product ManualManual

Next generation EQX input and output will support your existing 3G AVIP/AVOP processing workflows and prepare your new and existing EQX router for the future. Support for single-wire 12G-SDI, Video Over IP connection to Evertz and COTS IP cores using industry standards like SMPTE ST 2110 with ST 2022-7 support.

EQX-OP18AE is an 18-port output card with audio embedders supporting low latency VBI clean/quiet switching with license keys to enable frame sync paths, IP gateway functionality for 100G interfaces, UHD and additional other processing capabilities. The HD-BNC rear plate is included, QSFP modules for IP connections are sold separately.

EQX-OP18AE-F is an 18-port SMPTE fiber output card with audio embedders supporting low latency VBI clean/quiet switching with license keys to enable 18x independent frame sync paths, UHD, and other additional processing capabilities. The SFP rear plate is included, SFPs for 12G-SDI connection are sold separately.
