ORX 1802

3G Fiber Optic to SDI Receiver

Datasheet Quickreference


The ORX 1802 is a compact fiber to SDI receiver designed to combat the restrictions involved with the distribution of uncompressed broadcast quality video signals over long distances. When paired with the fiber optic to SDI transmitters (e.g. yellobrik OTX 1812 or OTX 1842) you have a very cost effective optical transmission / receiver system for signals up to 1080p60 (3Gbit/s), while preserving full uncompressed quality.

The OTX 1812 provides 2 SDI outputs and support for LC, ST or SC singlemode fiber connections as well as an LC version suitable for multimode fiber. The ORX 1802 will auto-detect and re-clock any 270Mbit/s, 1.5Gbit/s and 3Gbit/s SDI fiber source and convert to an electrical signal. The module is fully compatible with 3Gbit Level A and Level B formats.

This yellobrik had a major hardware update. If your yellobrik has no usb port on it's length side please visit the yellobrik documents in our downloads section for the datasheet and quick reference.
