EQX26 - 576x576

Enterprise Hybrid Video / Audio / IP Router in 26RU

The EQX26 routing platform is a completely passive frame where all active components can be swapped. This makes it a high performance system that can be easily expanded to incorporate new technologies growing with your company needs and industry demands. EQX26 can be configured for many different environments; it supports 576x576 video IO with optional path-by-path redundancy, and it can even scale to 576x1152 video in a single frame. EQX26 can be further expanded using a multi-frame configuration supporting unblocking architecture with main and redundant inter-frame paths. The EQX26-FRHBX-XL2 provides additional outputs via 18x XLINK connections for penalty-free multiviewing, well suited for network and local broadcasters, mobile production, mobile flight packs, cable, military, government and corporate applications.

The EQX platform is Evertz' flagship routing and distribution solution, designed for high availability by adopting extensive industry-leading redundancy for all critical system elements. With its time-proven robustness and redundancy, the EQX is ideal for mission critical and demanding 24/7 environments.
