LYNX Releases 48G Fiber Transmission System

LYNX Technik recently released the OTR 1A42, an extendible 8K fiber transmission system for its yellobrik series.

This new fiber solution is ideal for transmitting multiple uncompressed 12G SDI streams. It allows users to extend 48Gbit/s (96Gbit/s in combination with the OTR 1A41) from a 12G infrastructure with a single cable! Transmit a wide range of additional channels thanks to the UPG port.

LYNX_OTR 1A42_FiberTransmissionSystemBanner_TEVIOS

This particular yellobrik solves the issue of transporting real-time, uncompressed 8K content over 10km (6.2 miles) with zero signal degradation or loss. More specifically for 8K applications, the signal is split over four 12G SDI links (48G) and supports full 8k resolution (up to 7680×4320@60 Hz). Each of the four 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI channels are fully independent & individually reclocked.

The self-contained kit includes:

  • 8K optical transmitter
  • 8K optical receiver
  • Power supply (excluding fiber cable)

Additionally, pair the OTR 1A42 with the yellobrik OTR 1A41 to enable 96Gbit/s throughput over fiber system.

HDR Evie+ by LYNX Technik is a Product Innovation Award Winner!

Awarded by TV Technology, the greenMachine HDR Evie+ solution by LYNX Technik recently took home a 2020 Product Innovation Award!

HDR Evie+ offers a unique approach to HDR down conversion. Converting HDR to SDR, HDR Evie+ helps retain detail in darker areas and preserve detail in bright areas that would typically be burned out by other HDR to SDR converters. More specifically, it utilizes patented dynamic segmented frame-by-frame algorithms that use sectional dynamic tone mapping. This allows for individual segment adjustment (144 segments/frame) of the 3G or 4K HDR content in real-time.

The segmented dynamic conversion is perfect for demanding and unpredictable content. This includes fast moving subjects and high contrast conditions, content primarily found in news broadcasts and live sports.

Curious to see HDR Evie+ at work? LYNX Technik provides an interactive HDR down conversion demo video.

LYNX Introduces Its First-Ever Rack Controller for Yellobrik!

The RCT 1012 by LYNX Technik is the first of its kind yellobrik rack controller!

Control, configure, and update via IP up to 12 yellobriks housed in a yellobrik rack. The RCT 1012 offers a bulk update method. This means eliminating the time-consuming task of updating, configuring, and setting parameters of individual yellobrik modules.

LYNX_RCT1012_yellobrikrackcontroller_workflow_TEVIOS

Once installed, simply manage the yellobrik installation centralized with LYNX’ control software APPolo and the embedded yellobrik functionality. Quickly and easily visualize, control, and configure all of the yellobriks connected to an IP network via the rack controller’s ethernet port connection. The RCT 1012 also detects status information on primary and redundant power supplies.

The RCT 1012 is shipping in February, 2021.

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.

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.
