Evertz Delivers Complete UHD Broadcast Infrastructure Options

At IBC 2022, Evertz is highlighting a variety of merchandise which might be designed to simplify the transition from SDI to all-IP infrastructures. By tapping into Evertz’ wealth of expertise on this space, broadcast services, venues and stadia can discover simple options that permit them to benefit from the most recent UHD (4K and 8K) know-how, whatever the sign kind they use.

“We acknowledge that, for some broadcasters, it isn’t attainable to change from SDI to all-IP infrastructures in a single fell swoop, both as a result of it’s financially unaffordable or as a result of it entails an excessive amount of of a transition for the ability and employees,” says Fernando Solanes, Director of Options Engineering for Evertz. “Nonetheless, because of our end-to-end, format agnostic options this doesn’t should be an issue as a result of our 12G-SDI options allow a hybrid method that enables facility operators to maximise current SDI gear purchases earlier than fully shifting into new territory. Each a part of the published chain is roofed by our merchandise, from routers and switches to processing gear and multiviewers, so broadcasters can use no matter sign kind they need, and in any mixture, protected within the data that we’re delivering know-how for at this time’s and tomorrow’s challenges.”

One 12G-SDI resolution that’s proving standard with broadcast services and OB vehicles is the NEXX, Evertz’ subsequent era processing routing resolution. This compact and strong product is fully-passive and has a modular-based body and essential interface/backplane that gives redundant management and ease of swapping elements, together with crosspoint, followers and I/O modules. With native full audio shuffling, and skill to faucet into further license-enabled options, NEXX additionally provides an built-in, software-enabled multiviewer. This has over 30 pre-configured layouts and makes use of inside Evertz X-Hyperlink signaling to stay penalty-free and keep away from pointless output utilization.

NEXX is a 5RU router that helps as much as 256×256 12G-SDI with 8 rear slots and will be expanded to 384×384 non-blocking by leveraging the extra 4 AUX slots. For added flexibility, the built-in software-enabled multiviewers are made obtainable on the NEXX crosspoints, permitting customers to route them to any output port on the NEXX router. For discrete audio utilizing MADI or TDM, ports can be found on the NEXX router with out sacrificing video I/O.

NEXX is managed by MAGNUM-OS, which offers all of the frequent consumer interfaces together with conventional {hardware} router management panels, digital web-based management panels, and VUE clever panels. MAGNUM-OS applies the identical benefits of management flows discovered with Evertz EQX-based methods, to NEXX-based ones, thus lowering the training curve for help and operations employees.

“NEXX has been designed to simply accept future I/O gateway modules for IP and SMPTE ST 2110, offering a path to combine future IP enlargement, defend the funding and make sure the platform can develop as buyer wants come up,” Solanes provides.

For current and new core EQX routing functions, Evertz is providing new 12G crosspoints with redundancy. The sizes for the brand new 12G crosspoints are 576×576 for the 26RU EQX body, 288×288 for the 16RU EQX body, and 180×180 within the 10RU EQX body. Prospects who need to transition to ST 2110 with a big legacy of SDI-based units can add EQX enter and output modules with built-in IP encapsulation or decapsulation to on/off ramp to/from a ST 2110 system.

Persevering with the format agnostic theme, Evertz can also be utilizing the IBC platform to showcase its newest multiviewer – the ev670-X30-HW-V2 Virtualized Media Processing Platform. Designed to make the administration of high-quality video indicators a lot simpler and extra environment friendly, this versatile product helps each 12G/3G/HD-SDI and IP interfaces. It additionally options new functions (APPS) that may be configured on the platform’s FPGA-based processing cores to supply multiviewers, gateway and video, audio and ancillary knowledge processing performance for each SDI and IP.

For 12G-SDI sign processing and conversion, Evertz will showcase the SCORPION Versatile Media Processing Platform. The SCORPION MIO-BLADE is a virtualized FPGA-based module that gives a sequence of software program apps that may be added to supply up/down/cross conversion, body synchronization, IP media gateway, quad to single hyperlink conversion, delay, and HDR/SDR conversion. Prospects can replace the capabilities of the MIO-BLADE by putting in a distinct app.

Many Evertz merchandise help each 12G-SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 indicators, and by selecting these Evertz clients can preserve a foot in each camps with out sacrificing the standard, flexibility or stability of their workflows.
