Evertz EMR Video Router

The engineers in the 305 Broadcast Video division have complete knowledge in setup, implementation, and training programs.

If you are looking to design a new studio, Master control, or any specific need in TV Video Broadcast Products, ask the experts at 305 Broadcast.  Let our engineers assist you and provide a complete turnkey solution.



The EMR is a multi-format modular router that provides a high density solution without compromising functionality. The EMR provides a unified platform for routing video as well as other formats. The EMR uses a proprietary X-Link interface to produce a video router that is both cost effective and powerful.

A single 6RU frame can accommodate 128x128 video signals, and expansion beyond this is as easy as adding another frame. With two 6RU frames, the EMR can accommodate 256x256 video signals with full redundancy.

The modular design of the EMR means that there are no limitations to the signal formats that can be added to the router, or limitations to the size at which it can be expanded to. Other products that can be combined with the EMR are audio routing, master control switchers, multi-viewers and more.

We try to have plenty of inventory available to satisfy our customer's needs, however Due to the recent supply chain situation. We suggest you verify by contacting us Availability before placing your order online.


The EMR allows any mix of formats within a frame. The inputs and outputs are scalable in blocks of 32. A system consists of the input stage, the crosspoint, and the output stage. Each input and output device is connected to the crosspoint through a proprietary X-Link connection. It is the use of this connection that provides the flexibility for the system to scale and evolve with changing needs.
