NV9000 Control System
Control System & GV Convergent Panels

The Grass Valley NV9000 router control system includes a wide range of highly adapted panels for superior control plus advanced, highly resilient router controllers. The panel range includes informative and easy to use LCD relegendable panels, multidestination panels, multimode button per source panels, destination/source (XY) panels, and the powerful RCP-200 smart panel. The advanced NV960 family and the all new NV920 family of enterprise-class controllers offer outstanding robustness, and extremely flexible control to address different facility workflows, even in the most complex facilities.

  • SNMP support
Legacy router integration
  • Control system allows simpler, incremental path to 3G/HD routing from third-party legacy router infrastructure, with phased transition to NV9000 control
Application-specific controllers
  • 1 RU compact and redundant truck controller
  • 2 RU Enterprise class, mission critical and serviceable controller

The NV9000 control system is an advanced platform for routing control. Different configurations of the system controllers are available to address a broad range of requirements with regards to features, function and redundancy. NV960 uses a single 2 RU system controller; NV965 uses a pair of 2 RU system controllers to offer full redundancy. NV967 includes a pair of system controllers, RS-485 port cards, NV9700 remote diagnostic and change-over panel, as well as all cables required to connect the included components together.

NV920 is the latest enterprise-class controller hardware, which offers single or redundant configurations in a 1 RU rack size. The NV920 runs the same NV9000 software as the NV960 platform, and includes many of the same options, but fewer TCP/IP ports and less serial control functionality. The NV920 is ideal for most applications, especially when rack space, heat emission and power consumption are concerns.

All system controllers are rack mounted and come with redundant power supplies. Customers must supply all monitors, keyboards or mice to be connected to the system controller platforms. All software preloaded, including drivers, to control any Grass Valley routers including NVISION series, Trinix and Apex as well as including drivers to interface with Encore, Jupiter and SMS-7000 controllers.

Optional software is available to control Philips/BTS, Utah Scientific, Horizon, Snell (Pro-Bel), Pesa, Sony, ISIS, and Datatek systems.

Third-party interfaces are available for SNMP, Snell (Pro-Bel) and SMS-MCPU Bridge. Other core system options include tie-line management software and remote diagnostics software.
