Extron Introduces Fiber Optic Transmitter for Simplified Integration of 3G-SDI Sources

extron-fiberoptic-1214Extron’s new FOXBOX T HD-SDI is a fiber optic transmitter that converts 3G-SDI video to streamline integration of SDI sources with non-SDI displays. The FOXBOX T HD-SDI uses Extron all-digital technology to provide perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of video, audio, and control to a FOX Series DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI or VGA receiver, including the FOXBOX SR HDMI scaling receiver. The FOXBOX T HD-SDI is ideal for wider system designs, supporting distance learning applications, auditoriums, houses of worship, and other environments that often include the use of broadcast-type sources such as PTZ cameras and professional or consumer-grade displays.

The FOXBOX T HD-SDI provides many features for simplified integration, including input equalization, audio gain and attenuation adjustment, real-time status LEDs, and alarm notification for fiber link loss. For increased system design flexibility, it sends embedded AES audio or stereo analog audio and bidirectional RS-232 control signals along with the video. SD Pro processing de-interlaces 480i and 576i signals for compatibility with HDMI and DVI-equipped displays without the need for additional scalers. This low-profile fiber optic transmitter is available as multi-mode and single-mode models. The FOXBOX T HD-SDI enables SDI signal conversion and extension in simple point-to-point applications, and can be combined with FOX Matrix Switchers to support installations up to 1000×1000 and larger.

Here are the specs.
