LYNX Releases Bi-Directional Quad 12G SDI/Fiber Transceiver

The OTR 5444 by LYNX Technik is a quad-channel bi-directional 12G SDI/Fiber transceiver for the rack and card-based Series 5000 platform.

The OTR 5444 delivers uncompressed 4K signals over fiber across short & long distances. This transceiver module provides a bi-directional electrical to optical and optical to electrical conversion solution over four independent channels. It is suitable for SDI video signals up to 12Gbit/s and supports up to 8 modules in a standard 2RU frame. Optional fiber SFP sub-modules are also available.

In addition to the four bi-directional 12G SDI high-density micro BNC electrical interfaces, the OTR 5444 also consists of four 12G SDI optical inputs and four 12G SDI optical outputs arranged in the optical TR slots. The card is configurable via the APPolo control software.

In brief, the OTR 5444 features:

  • Bi-directional electrical to optical & optical to electrical conversion up to 12G SDI
  • 4 independent 12G SDI Channels (8K quad-channel optical <> electrical conversion)
  • 4 x Optical Transceivers (TR)
  • 4 x High-density BNCs (TR)
  • Incoming & outgoing 12G SDI signals are reclocked
  • LYNX APPolo Control System: remote control, status monitoring & error reporting
  • Hot swappable

SAPEC Adds New “DUAL” Model to LAGUNA SOLUTIONS

The new LAGUNA DUAL media processor by SAPEC is the perfect solution for 1 or 2 channel applications (encoding, decoding or bidirectional).

Ideal for broadcasting in remote locations, LAGUNA DUAL joins the QUAD and OCTAL models to become the third LAGUNA multi-channel solution. As the DUAL is bidirectional, each channel can be configured as an encoder or decoder. Each channel is also completely independent in terms of profile, compression and bit rate. The DUAL offers total configuration flexibility along with the following features:

  • Internal multiplexer (MPTS output)
  • Up to 8x audio PID (stereo) per video channel
  • 3G/1080p (FHD) input
  • BISS 1/E encryption
  • 2x or 4x IP interfaces
  • FEC SMPTE 2022-1 / 2 UDP / TRP Multicast & unicast (2 streams per video channel)
  • FW / SW update through WEB GUI
  • Redundant hot-swappable (AC/DC) power supply

Additionally, all Laguna models now support SCTE104->SCTE35 conversion on the encoding side.
