Evertz highlights new products for the RF market at IBC2022
At IBC2022, Evertz will show a range of RF solutions that cover all areas of advanced satellite and terrestrial telecommunications.
On show for the first time in Europe, and developed in close collaboration with its subsidiary Quintech, are new additions to the Evertz RF portfolio spanning key applications such as RF over fibre and IP transport, RF distribution and routing matrices, RF receivers and monitoring, and antenna and teleport services. These include the large-scale XQRF-512 routing platform, which offers double the density of the XPRF-XL and presents operators with flexible configurations from 16×16 up to 256×256, 160×352, 320×192 and more in a compact 14RU form-factor.
Evertz is also set to to showcase its new RF over IP technology at IBC2022. This technology is said to present broadcasters with the ability to reliably and securely transport analogue RF signals over any distance within their digital network, while preserving carrier-to-noise ratio. This offers greater flexibility to operators searching for a satellite/IP hybrid workflow and expands the ability to virtualise the satellite ground segment, resulting in improved operational efficiencies and new possibilities. Evertz will be presenting its high-density, hot swappable RF over IP platform that features up to four RF over IP conversions per module. Each module offers 1+1 redundant QSFP ports, each port with up to 100G support. A maximum of 28 RF over IP conversions are possible in a 3RU chassis, or up to eight conversions in a 1RU chassis.
In addition, Evertz is showing the MIO-DM4-SAT series, which takes its satellite (DVB-S/S2/S2X) demodulator to the next level by making it available in a MIO module that fits into the Scorpion flexible media processing platform. Each dual slot MIO module has four demodulators for up to 32 demodulators in a 1RU Scorpion-S18/X18 chassis. Available in three options – single RF input, dual RF inputs, or quad RF inputs – the MIO-DM4-SAT series offers reduced cabling while minimising upstream RF distribution infrastructure.
The line up of new RF products is completed by the MIO-CAM2, a dual slot MIO module for Scorpion that supports two DVB-CI CAM slots. Designed for applications where descrambling is required, the MIO-CAM2 also utilises DVB-CI compliant conditional access modules.
