The systems will transparently pass embedded audio signals and data. The audio and data must be embedded and extracted separately.
The HD–3000 series of products are available in compact stand–alone and rack–mount packages, making them ideal for applications including field remotes, sporting events, ENG/SNG, production and in–plant signal distribution. The power requirements are 110 and 220 VAC with a wall–mount power supply or 5 to 16 VDC with an external battery.
The compact unit offers an economical solution for the distribution of digital signals from 5Mb/s to 3Gb/s up to 5.8 miles (15km) over single-mode or up to 3229ft (300m) over multimode fiber-optic cables.
