3GSDI Digital Video Transport System over Fiber Optic

The Gefen 3GSDI Fiber Optic Extender is a miniature serial digital video 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 18 miles(30 kilometers) by using single-mode or up to 1640 feet (500 meters)multi-mode fiber optic cable, terminated in ST.



How It Works


A digital video source is connected to the 3GSDI Fiber Optic Extender sender. Next, connect the sender and receiver via fiber optic cable. Apply power to both sender and receiver units. Finally, connect the receiver unit to the 3G-SDI digital output destination.
