MRV HD video transceivers enable HD transport via any fiber network

January 23, 2007

The MRV Communications Digital Video SFP family of digital video fiber-optic transceivers allows transport of uncompressed HD video over standard fiber-optic networks.

The transceivers enable post-production facilities and rich-media studios to transport HD-SDI video over dark fiber using networking gear from any vendor that supports the small form factor pluggable (SFP) standard.

In tests, MRV Digital Video SFPs were used to transmit uncompressed SDI and HD-SDI between Sony HDW-F500 (HDCAM) and Panasonic HD3700H (D5) tape deck pairs over 13mi of single-mode dark fiber.

The MRV SFPs are available for the DVB-ASI (270Mb/s) standard, the SDI (270Mb/s) standard and HD-SDI.
