"The FOX HD-SDI gives integrators the ability to use new or existing fiber resources to extend multi-rate SDI signals very long distances," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. "This includes end-to-end SDI signal transmission, and also various applications such as sending the signal from an SDI source to several, distant locations."
To optimize SDI signal transmission to and from the FOX HD-SDI, input signals are automatically equalized, and output signals are reclocked. The FOX HD-SDI automatically recognizes and transmits SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI signals, and is compliant with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards. Because the FOX HD-SDI is a transceiver, multi-rate SDI signals can be simultaneously transmitted and received between a pair of FOX HD-SDI units. It is also configurable as a dedicated transmitter with outputs for previewing on a local monitor, and as a dedicated receiver with the capability to daisy-chain multiple units for supporting displays at multiple locations. Housed in a 1" high, quarter rack width enclosure, the FOX HD-SDI can be conveniently installed in various locations.
