The 7700R2x2-HD Supports: HD/SD-SDI and ASI TS Monitoring with Smart Switch Protection

The 7700R2x2-HES Supports: HD/SD-SDI Monitoring with Smart Switch Protection and Embedded Clean Switch

The 7700R2x2 series modules are bypass protection routers for high definition 1.5GB/s or standard definition 270MB/s serial digital video signals. These modules have two SD/HD compatible inputs signals (program and back up) that support all popular ST 292-1 video formats as well as 525/625 line SMPTE ST 259-1 video formats. These modules also provide three re-clocked primary outputs, and one re-clocked backup output. Based on a programmable set of input signal monitors, the main program or the back-up input signals can be automatically routed to the primary program outputs to ensure the delivery of a valid program output in the case of an input signal fault. Switching can also be controlled and monitored using module GPIOs, card edge controls or remotely using either network control panels (CP-2116E, CP-2232E) or VistaLINK® PRO. The program output is bypass relay protected and provides protection on the program path. If the module is removed from the enclosure or power to the module is lost, the program path is maintained.

The 7700R2X2-HES incorporates Evertz® proprietary SoftSwitch™ technology with full audio proc for clean video and "popless" embedded audio switching. Line synchronizers on the video inputs can accommodate differences in timing of up to ±1/2 a line on the video inputs. The 7700RD2X2-HD provides two monitoring down-converted outputs.

The 7700R2x2-HD provides additional MPEG-2 feed redundancy switching. By providing automatic smart switching of the main signal to a back up signal, the 7700R2x2-HD offers protection to digital compressed signals. The user can customize all monitored and switching rules to meet Broadcast, Cable, Satellite and IPTV needs.

The 7700R2X2-HD and 7700R2X2-HES occupy one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.
