Product ManualManual
  • Single card TDM multiplexer for six bi-directional asynchronous HD-SDI, or eight bi-directional asynchronous SD-SDI, or DVB-ASI signals or any combination thereof with maximum total bandwidth of 9GB/s
  • Built-in Ethernet transceiver with one 10/100/1000 Base-T port with FBM (Fiber Bandwidth Management) technology
  • Uncompressed, full-rate video transport
  • Signal transport over fiber uninterrupted by loss of any input feed
  • Transparently passes embedded AES or any other data in the horizontal or vertical ancillary data space
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame
  • Supports single-mode fiber optic cable
  • Optical output wavelengths of 1310nm, 1550nm, and up to eight CWDM wavelengths (1470nm -1610nm)
  • DWDM wavelength (ITU-T G.694.1 compliant) support
  • Pluggable Evertz XFP module permits wavelength swapping/sparing
  • Comprehensive signal and card status monitoring via four digit card edge display or remotely through SNMP and VistaLINK®
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 7800FR frame with a 7800FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
  • Occupies three card slots and can be housed in the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, or the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity.
