The only routing solution for mission critical applications... the EQX platform has the ability to route up to 576x576 signals in a compact 26RU frame, or up to 288x288 in the 16RU frame. The EQX is ideal for mission critical and demanding 24/7 environments, including network, local broadcaster, mobile production, cable, military, government and corporate applications.
Designed for Performance Ultra Wide Band Routing
By offering a format independent data path, the EQX supports signals from 3Mb/s all the way up to 3Gb/s including SD-SDI, HD-SDI, DVB-ASI, SMPTE ST 310 digital video formats as well as optical formats and other high data rate signals. In addition to this the EQX supports four independent timing planes which provides independent SMPTE compliant switching for up to four different digital video signal formats.
The EQX's exceptional Source-By-Source intelligent auto configuration facility allows the path to each destination to be independently and instantly re-configured to suit the requirements of the source being switched. This includes auto selecting the Reclocking/Non-reclocking circuitry, the ASI mode as well as selecting the correct switch point.
The inspired modular approach of the EQX's design provides excellent in-service expansion capabilities. In convenient steps of 18, the number of inputs and/or outputs can be increased from the base size of 18x18 all the way up to 576x576, and beyond, in square and non-square configurations.
The EQX offers the ability to scale up to 1152x1152 without requiring complex, expensive and difficult to install and maintain external splitting and combining or active DA'ing of sources and switching of destinations.
Available Double Density Outputs allow the EQX to grow past 576 outputs in the 26RU chassis and past 288 outputs in the 16RU chassis.
Multiview Processor Integration
The EQX now integrates X-Link on both 16 and 26RU models. X-Link is a high density interconnect to a wide variety of Evertz Multiview Processors that DOES NOT use up standard router outputs. A 576x576 EQX will still have the full 576 outputs while supporting more than 200 additional outputs to an Evertz Multiview Processor. XLink technology is a unique Evertz signal interconnect carrying a large block of signals over a single connector.
The EQX router is an integral part of the Evertz Integrated audio system which allows operators the ability to reduce cost and space while giving the flexibility to route embedded AES, discrete analog, discrete AES and MADI inputs to embedded AES, discrete analog, discrete AES and MADI outputs. Any audio input in the system can be routed to any output.
The EQX delivers a high broadcast quality 576x576 routing capability in a compact 26RU frame, while expansion to 1152x1152 ensures a migration path for even larger applications.
The EQX provides comprehensive connectivity to suit the most demanding installations. The internal frame controllers provide complete connectivity to any number of remote control panels and 3rd party control devices such as automation systems via multiple Q-Link, F-Link, Ethernet and Serial ports. The optional advanced EQX control system makes enterprise installations with advanced tie-lines, automated pathfinding, and advanced control surfaces easy to implement and manage.
EQX provides extensive signal monitoring of both inputs and outputs, power supply voltages, interior temperatures and fan speeds. All monitored data is available through SNMP for facility-wide monitoring systems such as VLPRO.
The advanced design of the EQX ensures that all active components, including input, output, crosspoint modules, frame controllers, cooling fans and power supplies, are accessible from the front of the frame and can be hot swapped at any time for maintenance.
Outstanding Redundant Protection
The EQX is the ultimate design in terms of system availability. The EQX architecture contains redundant protection for all of the critical system elements. The architecture provides redundant cross-point configurations, redundant frame controllers, external redundant load sharing power supplies, redundant easy access cooling fans and a dedicated monitoring bus that is independent of the system cross-points. In the event of a failure, manual or automatic re-routing of signals on an output-by-output Path-by-Path basis is fully supported by the system software. Using the EQX monitoring capabilities, output quality can be verified prior to switching to redundant signal paths. The EQX is fully SNMP enabled and supports seamless integration with VistaLINK® PRO command and control systems.
