Joseph Electronics Releases DFT Series for Fiber Transport

Systems can be customized March 27, 2014
NILES, ILL.—Joseph Electronics announced its Digital Fiber Transport Series of signal transport systems. These systems can be customized to accommodate a variety of production requirements, especially for electronic newsgathering, small stadiums, and anywhere else that simple point-to-point systems are required.

The DFT-8 is a 1-RU system for the bidirectional flow of up to eight video signals on a single fiber, with an option to equip the unit for fiber redundancy.The DFT-12 EXP, new for this year and requiring 2 RU, features 12 paths of 3G/HD-SDI and ASI signals over one or two fibers. Additionally, modules for AES or analog audio, MADI, 1 Gb Ethernet, RTS intercom, POV interface (genlock and video), or data can be fitted into the four available expansion slots to provide a complete signal transport system for remote announce booths or split feeds. More modules are in development.

All signal paths for any unit in the DFT Series are user-configurable in pairs of two in order to meet any send/receive requirements, and redundant power supplies are standard for ensuring a complete backup of critical paths. In addition, full-fiber redundancy with automatic fail-safe switchover is available as an option for all DFT Series frames.
