 FOX I/O 1616 HD-SDI 16x16 I/O Board - 3G-SDI 70-966-01

The Extron FOX I/O 1616 HD-SDI board is available as an option for the FOX Matrix 14400 and FOX Matrix 320x Modular Fiber Optic Matrix Switchers, and enables connection to local 3G-SDI-equipped devices. This board offers a 16x16 configuration for switching and distribution of signals up to 2.97 Gbps, including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI. With this board, the FOX Matrix switchers can be configured as dedicated 3G-SDI matrix switchers, or with a combination of 3G-SDI and fiber optic matrix switching. The FOX I/O 1616 HD-SDI board is compliant with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards.

The FOX I/O 1616 HD-SDI board is hot-swappable, and each input and output is individually buffered to maximize performance with virtually no crosstalk. To optimize transmission to and from the board, input signals are automatically equalized, and output signals are reclocked.

The FOX I/O 1616 HD-SDI board enables a local BNC connection to the FOX 3G HD-SDI fiber optic extender for 3G-SDI. Incoming signals from the extender can be routed to the board's BNC outputs, or through the fiber optic outputs to remote FOX 3G HD-SDI extenders. Similarly, local BNC inputs can be output on fiber or BNC. In broadcast and production applications, a 3G-SDI-equipped FOX Matrix switcher, together with several FOX 3G HD-SDI extenders, offers expanded opportunities for system integration. For example, they can be used to route signals to and from local editing equipment, while also providing the capability to receive or transmit 3G-SDI signals very long distances to devices in remote locations, such as cameras and production monitors.
