LYNX Technik Announced 8K SDI <> Fiber Converter at IBC2019
As an 8K SDI <> fiber converter, the module transports and converts up to 8K-SDI (12G, 6G, 3G, HD, SD) over optical fiber cable and vice-versa.
Operating as a 12G-SDI re-clocking distribution amplifier, the module carries 4K video on a single cable and is suitable for any SDI video signal up to 12G for 4K applications.
This new Series 5000 card also enables single-link 12G SDI signals to be converted to quad-link 3G-SDI and vice versa (i.e. quad-link 3G-SDI signals to be converted to single-link 12G-SDI). 6G to/from quad-link 1.5G conversions are also supported. With many facilities still running in a 3G environment, there are many requirements to integrate 4K/UHD signals in 12G-SDI into the infrastructure. In this mode, the DVD 5480 HO module enables users to convert UHD signals between quad-link 3G and single-link 12G SDI.
The Series 5000 is LYNX Technik’s rack and card-based modular interface solution that can be configured with any mix of modules from an extensive portfolio. Solutions include; converters, distribution amplifiers, embedders/de-embedders, frame synchronizers, audio delay, audio distribution, test signal generators, multiplexers/demultiplexers, splitters, switches and a full range of fiber options (including CWDM) & accessories. All connected Series 5000 hardware are controlled through the centralized APPolo, a powerful yet simple software solution for remote control, status monitoring and error reporting. APPolo offers a unique user experience through its flexGUI, an intuitive graphic user interface that offers a simple way to visualize and control Series 5000 modules.
