Standard features of all 7800series multiframes include dual frame genlock providing stable reference signal across the internal bus to all installed modules which minimizes the cost spent on genlock distribution, global frame status alarming to provide quick alert to operations in the event of a failure, and interchangeable modules between all frames (both processing module and companion rear plate).
The 7700FC VistaLINK Frame Controller card provides a single point of access to communicate with VistaLINK capable modules. The 7700FC VistaLINK Frame Controller provides a 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet port and communication is facilitated through the use of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The 7700FC VistaLINK Frame Controller handles all SNMP communications between the frame (7700FR-C) and the network manager (NMS), and serves as a gateway to individual cards in the frame. The 7700FC VistaLINK Frame Controller also provides an RS-232 serial port interface for custom configurations.
