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.

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
