Product ManualManual

The ev6-FR is a 6RU modular platform that draws upon the lessons learned from the deployment of tens of thousands of Evertz' award-winning 7000 series multiframes. The ev6-FR's architecture enables modules with advanced functionality due to their significantly larger size compared to any other multiframe platform. All modules in the ev 6RU series and legacy 3000 series of Evertz products occupy the full vertical height of the 6RU frame, and can be mixed and matched within each frame to build complex signal processing chains.

Additionally all frames offer hot-swappable dual redundant power supplies that allow for power supply and fan replacement without compromising the integrity of critical signal paths and true remote monitoring of all modules and signals within the chassis from VistaLINK® via the frame controller. This configuration provides the SNMP network communication interface from the VistaLINK® Network Management Software to the chassis over the local or wide area network.
