The Evertz EQX16 platform is an entirely passive frame with swappable active parts.

This results in a system with excellent performance that is simple to expand to include new technologies as your business and industry demands change.

The EQX16 Supports 288×288 video IO with optional path-by-path redundancy and can even scale up to 288×576 video IO. It may be configured for a wide range of situations.

The EQX16-FRHBX-XL3 is highly suited for network and local broadcasters, mobile production, mobile flight packs, cable, military, government, and corporate applications. It also offers additional outputs via 27x XLINK connectors for penalty-free multiviewing.
