NAB 2018: Evertz To Showcases Innovative RF Solutions
Evertz will launch the XRF4 high-density RF router at NAB 2018. The XRF4 is the next evolution of Evertz’ comprehensive range of RF routing solutions. The XRF4 is an ultra-compact, high-density RF routing solution which complements Evertz’ existing range of RF Routers.
The XRF4 is a modular router with hot-swappable rear panels and a 64×128 routing matrix in a compact 4RU form factor. In addition, the XRF4 features direct fiber-optic inputs and does not require external RF to fiber-optic signal converters, lowering overall system complexity and costs.
The XRF4 also features a 10-inch touchscreen that enables rapid onsite control and health monitoring of the XRF4 without the need for an external control interface. The touchscreen also includes a spectrum analyzer for signal monitoring,eliminating the need for costly external test equipment.
“The XRF4 is the industry’s highest density RF routing solution. RF infrastructures continue to grow in scale and the XRF4 is an ideal solution for space constrained applications,” says Harjinder Sandhu, product manager of RF Solutions, Evertz. “Despite its small form factor, the XRF4 also has an innovative feature set, including integrated control and monitoring and direct fiber interfaces that meet the demanding requirements of our customers and their RF infrastructures.”
