P Fiber II Optical Fiber Extender by LanSee

The P Fiber II PFP 3050 optical fiber extender by LanSee transmits all signals (video streams, Genlock signal path & Ethernet communication) without latency over one optical fiber cable.

LanSee_PFiberII_opticalfiberextender_TEVIOS

Using a hybrid optical cable, the camera can be up to 200m away from the control room. However, if the camera is powered locally this distance increases to 10km.

The Camera Unit (camera side) is designed to fit the shape of Panasonic PTZ cameras, while the Base Unit (control room side) comes in a 19″ rackable chassis form-factor.

Lastly, P FIBER II supports 12G-SDI.

LYNX Introduces 12Gbit Bidirectional SDI/Fiber Transceiver

LYNX Technik releases their OBD 1410 12Gbit Bidirectional SDI/Fiber Transceiver!

This cost-effective, bidirectional fiber optic to SDI transmitter and receiver relies on a single fiber link supplied in a compact self-contained package.LYNX_OBD1410_Transceiverworkflow_TEVIOS

This particular yellobrik module comes in pairs: Type A and Type B work together in a WDM closed loop application. They each have an electrical SDI in and SDI out connection. Additionally, each channel is fully independent, allowing for different standards and formats of SDI video. The modules are fully compatible with 3Gbit Level A and Level B formats. Plus, before conversion they auto-detect & re-clock 1.5Gbit, 3Gbit, 6Gbit or 12Gbit SDI sources.

Finally, this solution cannot be integrated into a CWDM multiplexed system. The system used WDM optical multiplexing and therefore should only be used in point to point applications.

Contact us for more information about the OBD 1410, LYNX’ latest 12Gbit Bidirectional SDI/Fiber Transceiver.

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

New Yellobrik Dual 12G SDI Fiber Transmitter

LYNX Technik announces its latest yellobrik solution: a 12Gbit Dual Channel SDI Fiber Transmitter with CWDM technology!

LYNX_ Yellobrik 12Gbit Fiber Transmitter _TEVIOS

Both cost-effective and flexible, this new yellobrik model (OTT 1442) transmits uncompressed 12G SDI video signals over fiber as well as over long distances (up to 10 km). The CWDM technology combines multiple signal wavelengths into one fiber optic cable. This model covers all 18 CWDM wavelengths via nine pairs of wavelength choices.

LYNX_Yellobrik 12Gbit Fiber Transmitter_OTT1442

What’s more, this yellobrik 12Gbit Fiber Transmitter pairs with LYNX’ fiber receivers and multiplexers/demultiplexers. This in turn creates a cost-effective CWDM fiber system for up to 18 signals on one fiber link. Alternatively, this yellobrik also acts as a standalone device. It can be individually mounted or used with the 19″ yellobrik rack trays, building a larger 12G transport solution.

The two input and outputs operate independently from one another. They are also fully automatic. Incoming signals (up to 12G SDI) are auto-detected before being transmitted, ensuring that different formats and standards are carried on each channel. In other words, this is truly a plug-and-play module.

LYNX Technik has launched a new 8K SDI to Fiber and Fiber to 8K SDI converter. The converter is for its Series 5000 product line. This 8K SDI <>fiber converter module transports and converts up to 8K-SDI (12G, 6G, 3G, HD, SD) over optical fiber cable and vice-versa.

LYNX Series 5000 8K SDI to Fiber Converter TEVIOS

With both fiber and electrical interfaces, the DVD 5480 HO module can support video formats up to 8K SDI. The versatile and rugged cards are operable in four different modes, providing unparalleled flexibility.

Additionally, this Series 5000 card allows single-link 12G SDI signals to be converted to quad-link 3G-SDI and quad-link 3G-SDI to be converted to single-link 12G-SDI. The DVD 5480 HO module also allows users to convert UHD signals between 3G and single-link 12G-SDI.

LYNX_Series5000_RackFrames_TEVIOS

The Series 5000 is a rack and card-based modular interface, configurable with multiple modules. Various solutions include: converters, embedders/de-embedders, distribution amplifiers, frame synchronizers, audio delay and audio distribution. Test signal generators, multiplexers/demultiplexers, splitters, switches and a full range of fiber options/accessories are also available. The centralized APPolo software solution remotely controls all connected Series 5000 hardware.
