12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Fiber Extender with Bi-Directional RS232

The S1202E is an ideal and economic solution designed for transmission of multi-rate SDI video, with embedded audio and metadata over a single-mode fiber optic cable. The transmitter module receives one 12G/6G/3G/HD/SDI electrical input, perfectly converts SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 259M, SMPTE 424M, SMPTE 2082 or DVB-ASI electrical SDI signal to single-mode optic SDI signals. The receiver module receives optical signal from input SFP connector, and then perfectly converts it to electrical SDI signal. S1202E is immune to pathological pattern (SMPTE RP-198) without introducing any flickers, and this feature further guarantees the transmission quality over optical fibers.

Both transmitter and receiver provide equalizing and reclocking at input unit in order to re-construct the signal for consistent quality. The S1202E is perfect for today’s broadcast applications, including video production, video editing, studio to studio and studio to CATV head end. S1202E is also equipped with bi-directional RS-232 serial port control. This bonus features allow users to boost RS-232 control distance up to 10km (32800ft) through Optical fiber cable with SDI signals. In addition, since transmission of content is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, and medical environments.
