Media Exchange Platform

The EV90 is a digital headend and stream processing platform in a high-density 1RU form-factor. The EV90 manages multiplexing, PSI/SI table insertion, scrambling and can also provide up to 168 QAM-modulated output signals for cable-headend applications. Equipped with four 10GE data ports, the EV90 has options for flexible configurations including the use of 1+1 port redundancy or stream redundancy using configurable triggers and service ID detection follow-up.

Up to six processing modules can be housed inside of the chassis to facilitate various applications such as IP and ASI input/output modules and modulated RF output modules.

The EV90 platform can be utilized as a single function or multi-function chassis system, depending on the type of application such as content ingestion, conditional access, multiplexing and broadcasting.
