Grass Valley NVISION 8500 HYBRID router

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.

The NVISION 8500 Router IP Gateway provides broadcasters and media organizations 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 2022-6, the IP Gateway gives broadcasters all they need to transport video over 10 GigE networks. The IP Gateway consists of input/output cards that are installed into any NVISION 8500 HYBRID router frame..

Key Features

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
  • For optimal cost efficiency, audio processing can be performed across all video inputs, using just a small portion of matrix equipped with audio processing modules using Dynamic Hybrid Pathfinding
  • Dynamic Hybrid Pathfinding automatically routes signals via the audio processing modules whenever required, under manual or automated control
  • 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
  • MADI over fiber available through external conversion using PicoLink FIO-991p MADI

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 NVISION 9000 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
