Joseph Electronics Releases DFT Series for Fiber Transport
Systems can be customized
March 27, 2014
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.
