Frame Sync FunctionalityThe NVISION 8500 HYBRID Router Series Frame Sync Input Card has eight input ports and enables the simple synchronization of incoming wild feeds or signals moving between facilities. Previously, in applications that required the processing of eight feeds, eight frame synchronizers using eight processing cards were required. This new input card eight frame synchronizers on a single card — with 3G, HD and SD all supported on the same module. The Frame Sync card supports multiple frame rates and formats and can shuffle audio at the input.
Integrated Audio ProcessingThe NVISION 8500 HYBRID Router Series Disembed/Embed Output Card that conveniently embeds audio into any embedded audio channel location, even when managing inputs from non-hybrid sources. The addition of this functionality within the NVISION HYBRID Routing platform enables unprecedented flexibility with embedded audio while also greatly reducing latency introduced into the program. This functional integration saves costs, as well as space, weight and power. It also streamlines the workflow and minimizing cabling.
AA/AES/MADI Audio ConcentratorsTo further streamline cabling, the NVISION 8500 HYBRID routers can be used with NVISION 8900 audio concentrators. These devices convert Analog or AES to MADI, and MADI to Analog or AES, and this can radically reduce the number of audio cables needed in broadcast infrastructures. This reduces installation costs, simplifies troubleshooting, and reduces weight in a mobile environment.

Streamlined Cabling Using Coax and FiberThe NVISION 8500 HYBRID routers offer highly streamlined cabling using either coax or fiber. The unique, clean design of the router provides unparalleled signal integrity and allows longer coax cable runs, using high density cable connectors which save space and lower weight. Advanced direct fiber connectivity is also available, using SFP modules for 1310 nm or CDWM wavelengths.
Ultimate Resilience with Redundant CrosspointsThe NVISION 8500 HYBRID router offers patented N-on-1 crosspoint redundancy to provide a zero downtime capability, with a back-up system for the largest possible impact block in the router. A redundant crosspoint array continuously shadows the main array and, in the event of a failure, a single action repairs the situation by “gang switching” all outputs to the good, redundant crosspoint card during the next vertical interval. Router maintenance can then be performed without impacting the facility’s operations. This maintenance process is outlined below:
