SD/HD/3G SDI Serial Digital Video Transport System over Fiber optic

The GefenPRO 3GSDI Fiber Optic Extender is a miniature serial digital video data transport system extending video over fiber optic cable supporting 1080p for 3G-SDI. It converts a one-channel SMPTE-424M 3G-SDI, SMPTE-292M HD, or SMPTE-259M serial digital video signal over extended distances up to 12 miles (20 km) using either single-mode or multi-mode fiber optic cable, terminated in ST.

How It Works

The Sender unit receives the SDI input signal from a compatible SD/HD/3G SDI source and converts the SMPTE-424M / 292M / 259M SDI signals to optical data. The Receiver unit converts the data to an SD/HD/3G SDI signal, which in turn connects to BNC connection point, or a display. Both Sender and Receiver units are powered by an external 5V locking power supply.
