NVISION 8500 HYBRID Series
Digital Video/Audio Routers with Audio Processing (4K/3G/HD/SD/ASI/AES/AA/MADI)

NVISION 8500 Hybrid routers combine exceptional resilience with cost, space and power efficiency to make them your ideal enterprise-class routing solution. Perfect for production and playout applications from trucks to the largest engine rooms, they offer the convenience of integrated audio processing and simplified cable management with no compromises on reliability. Available in five frame sizes, with matrices from 144x144 to 1152x1152 and larger — whatever your need, NVISION 8500 has the right fit.

NEW IP GATEWAY CARD The NVISION 8500 Router IP Gateway provides broadcasters the ability to future-proof their facilities for the coming transition from SDI to IP infrastructures. By packetizing real-time, uncompressed, baseband video using SMPTE ST 2022-6, the IP Gateway gives broadcasters all they need to transport video over 10 GbE networks.

The NVISION 8500 HYBRID series also features the NVISION 8140 HYBRID 144x288 digital video/audio router.

NVISION 8500 HYBRID Insights & Highlights
Space, power and cost saving with integrated audio processing
  • Integrated 16 channel audio de-embedding, shuffling, re-embedding and breakaway saves space, power, weight and costs
  • Audio concentrators minimize cabling, associated labor and weight
Eliminating audio to video delay problems
  • By eliminating the requirement for external audio de-embedders and embedders, the router prevents audio to video latency problems, which can be an issue in live production environments when feeding signals to an audio console
Simplified cable management with direct fiber connectivity
  • Unique, clean design provides unparalleled signal integrity and allows longer coaxial cable runs
  • High density coaxial connectors streamline cabling and lower weight
  • Direct fiber connectivity using SFP modules for 1310 nm and CDWM wavelengths
  • Ultra resilient design
  • Patented N-on-1 crosspoint redundancy
  • Front loading with hot swappable power supplies, input, output, controller and crosspoint modules, and speed controlled fans
  • Small failure block: input block is 9, output block is 18
  • Redundant power supplies, crosspoints, and control cards
Scalable for the very largest systems
  • Five frames sizes provide matrices from 144x144 to 1152x1152 and larger
  • Rectangular matrices (twice as many outputs as inputs) are ideally suited to feeding multiviewer systems
Highly flexible control
  • Integrates tightly with advanced NV9000 controllers and wide range of control panels for easier signal management, even in the most complex facilities
Rich facility integration
  • Exceptional integration across a facility, including with multiviewers, signal processors, master control switchers, tally management systems and production switchers

IP (SMPTE ST 2022-6) capable

  • NVISION 8500 Router IP Gateway enables routing of baseband video over IP networks
  • Existing NVISION 8500 HYBRID router frames can utilize NVISION 8500 IP Gateway input/output cards.*  
  • IP Gateway cards allows for SDI and IP video to coexist in the same router
  • Works with GV Convergent software defined networking (SDN) control system to transparently manage facility IP routing with commercial off the shelf (COTS) IP switches

*NVISION 8140 input card design currently precludes gateway usage
