Performance and reliability in a compact package.

The EQT is a routing solution for mission critical applications. Its revolutionary design provides easy access to all components for quick replacement, minimizing down time. With this, and the ability to route up to 32x32 signals in a compact 2RU frame, the EQT is ideal for all mission critical and demanding 24/7 environments.

Being format independent data paths the EQT supports digital signals from 3Mb/s all the way up to 3Gb/s including SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, DVB-ASI, SMPTE ST 310.

Configuration: The EQT is housed in a 2RU frame and switches 32 sources to 32 destinations. Both the input and output stage of the EQT are fixed at 32 in the coaxial version, and expandable in blocks of 2 (to a max of 32) in the fiber version.

Control • The EQT router is compatible with the existing ranges of Quartz routers, remote control panels and control systems.

The EQT router includes, as standard, an internal frame controller module which supports a single Q-Link, a single serial port and a single Ethernet port on the rear of the router.

The EQT router has a number of control options:

Remote Control Panel • Any panel(s) from the entire range of Quartz remote control panels can be used with the EQT router connected via Q-Link or Ethernet. (Exceptions: CP-1024E, CP-2272E)

External Third Party Control • The EQT router can be remotely controlled via an external third party control device, such as an automation system, when connected to the serial port.

Expansion • The input and output stage of the EQT is fixed at 32 in the coaxial version and expandable in blocks of 2 in the fiber version. It can not be expanded beyond it's frame size.

Power Supply • The power supply for the EQT router is internal. The EQT router can be fitted with an optional redundant internal power supply that is hot swappable.

Technical • The EQT router offers a full 3Gb/s bandwidth to handle uncompressed HD signals. In addition, automatic bit rate detection on the input equalizer allows any mix of 3G, HD and SD signals in the same unit. All outputs are reclocking and user configurable.
