EQX-UHD: a 12G-SDI Enterprise Class router! Designed to support full 4K and UHD 12Gbps single-wire signals while adopting the same fundamental modular design philosophies and core redundancy concepts found in our 3G EQX routers, EQX-UHD is ideal for mission-critical and demanding 24/7 environments. A passive backplane and fully modular design allow for all critical active components to be hot-swappable from the front of the router. Featuring industry-leading path-by-path signal redundancy with redundant power, dual hot-swappable frame controllers and hot-swappable cooling fans, EQX-UHD is a true broadcast-quality enterprise router!

10RU Frame

Designed to be future-ready for 180x180 12Gbps SDI signals and suitable for many mid-sized UHD/4K applications like mobile production, mobile flight packs, network and local broadcasters, cable, sports and esports venues, military, government and corporate applications.

Input/Output Modules

With separate input and output modules, asymmetrical design are possible to fit your needs, the I/O cards functionality are no exception with support of different frame rates on a per-port basis, processing like 2sI-based 4:1 and 1:4 translation. As well a number of software enabled features like TDM audio for de-embed and re-embed, frame sync for timing asynchronous and/or unlocked signals.

Core Processing Capabilities

With de-embed and re-embed, the EQX-UHD has optional ADMX hybrid main/backup crosspoints, allowing the use of the full EMR-TDM audio module suite for integration of discrete audio without using up the valuable video ports on the router.

EQXUHD–IP16A(–F)

The second generation input card offers some enhanced capabilities but can also be used as a direct replacement using the same coax and SFP rear fins as the first generation modules, both generations input modules can coexist in the same frame.

  • Enhanced signal support for 12G, 6G, 3G-A, 3G-B and HD-SDI
  • 2SI gearbox support, 4:1 on input
  • Support for different input video frame rates on a per-input basis
  • Audio SRC: lock and frame rate conversion to match the ADMX set rate
  • Pop suppressor (enable/disable)
  • Bypass, low latency and frame buffer modes
  • TDM supports external like first generation cards but now also supports internal paths

EQXUHD-OP16A(-F)

The second generation output card offers some enhanced capabilities but can also be used as a direct replacement using the same coax and SFP rear fins as the first generation modules, both generations output modules can coexist in the same frame.

  • Enhanced signal support for 12G, 6G, 3G-A, 3G-B and HD-SDI
  • 2SI gearbox support, 1:4 on output
  • Supports different video frame rates on a per-output basis
  • Audio SRC: lock and frame rate conversion to match each video output rate
  • Pop suppressor (enable/disable)
  • Bypass, low latency and frame buffer modes
  • TDM supports external like first generation cards but now also supports internal paths
