LYNX Technik Expands Series 5000 Series with 12G Bi-Directional Quad SDI/Fiber Transceiver
November 23, 2020 – Weiterstadt, Germany – LYNX Technik, provider of modular signal processing interfaces, announces its new 12G bi-directional quad SDI/fiber transceiver for its rack and card-based Series 5000 Platform.
As the demand for 4K content increases, broadcast and production facilities often have the requirements to implement 4K into their existing workflows, which may still use a legacy coax infrastructure. The OTR 5444 has been designed to address these requirements all while preserving full uncompressed quality of the content as it delivers uncompressed 4K signals over fiber between equipment in a broadcast facility or over long distances.
It provides a bi-directional electrical to optical or optical to electrical conversion solution over four independent channels with support up to 12G SDI. Up to 8 modules can be supported in a standard LYNX 2RU rack frame. Optional fiber SFP sub-modules are available and are secured on the backplane allowing for card removal and hot swapping without removing any of the modules’ rear I/O fiber connections.
The OTR 5444 includes four bi-directional electrical interfaces, four 12G SDI optical inputs and four 12G SDI optical outputs. The user can configure the card via the APPolo control software to set the signal flow direction to either transmit or receive on the optical side, depending on the specific application.
The Series 5000 is modular as it offers a broad range of cards that can be combined in a rack or series of racks to configure a compact system to suit virtually any broadcast application. Cards for the Series 5000 platform include: converters, distribution amplifiers, embedders/de-embedders, frame synchronizers, audio delay, audio distribution, test signal generators, multiplexers/demultiplexers, splitters, switches and a full range of fiber options (including CWDM) & accessories. All connected Series 5000 hardware is controlled through the centralized APPolo, a powerful yet simple software solution for remote control, status monitoring and error reporting. APPolo offers a unique user experience through its flexGUI, an intuitive graphic user interface that offers a simple way to visualize and control Series 5000 modules.
