NEXX - 5RU Frame

Compact Processing Capable Routing Platform

Blurring the line between products, the Evertz NEXX Router, can fit into your solution. This multifaceted compact processing router has the potential to do SDI and IP coupled with mono channel audio shuffling. A modular solution that can conform.

Robust by design, NEXX takes many cues from Evertz' years of industry leading routing platforms. With the NEXX-IO-C1 module providing 32 x 32 HDBNC SDI, bi-directional SFPs for discrete MADI or TDM, frame sync, and four standard MVs. NEXX-670 brings 4 QSFP ports contributing the best IPG and Multiviewer that Evertz has to offer. All possible in a compact 5RU module router frame.

Licensable features to buy what you need now and future proof by adapting to your next project. A configuration suited for upgrading the production from SDI to IP, 1080p to single wire 12G, or something in between. Unlock Frame sync, UHD, Multiviewers, and more as desired.

NEXX proudly uses our MAGNUM control system providing traditional control panel coupled with MAGNUM-TALLY and VUE for advanced local or remote context oriented user interfaces.

Being a passive main interface/backplane and modular by design, NEXX provides a sturdy path to integrate future technology, protecting your investment and ensuring this platform can continue to grow as your needs arise.
