OTR 1A42

8k Fiber Transmission System [1350nm - 1410nm]

Datasheet Quickreference


The OTR 1A42 is a self contained fiber transmission kit for the transport of four discreet 12G SDI signals (or 8k/48G uncompressed) over a single fiber link. The kit includes the fiber transmitter, fiber receiver and power supplies. This is an ideal solution for the transmission of multiple uncompressed SDI streams up to 12G.

Each SDI channel is fully independent. For 8k use, the signal is split over four separate 12G SDI links (48G) and supports full 8k resolution at 60fps. The system can also be used for any combination of SDI signals, with a mix of formats and bit-rates if required. Each channel will automatically detect and reclock SDI bit rates of 270Mbit/s, 1.5Gbit/s, 3Gbit/s, 6Gbit/s and 12Gbit/s.

LED Indicators are provided for channel presence and power. An optional 19” rack mount tray is available which can accommodate up to four modules (RFR 1018).

Note: Internal CWDM optical multiplexing is utilized within the modules. This kit should be considered a self contained point to point solution and should not be integrated into external CWDM systems.
