Telecast announces new modules for Viper II
Telecast Fiber Systems has announced the next generation of fiber-optic video and audio transport module sets for its Viper II family.
In developing the RoHS-compliant Series 6000 for its legacy Viper II, Telecast said the modules provided higher performance and additional features. Most new Series 6000 HD SDI modules will be backwards compatible with existing Viper II 5000 series modules.
Several Viper II Series 6000 module sets are now available for the transport of SDI and HD SDI. They range from single HD SDI transport to multichannel transceivers and AES digital audio multiplexing.
Modules feature a BNC video monitoring port on the front panel, and certain modules offer loop-through inputs, multiple video outputs, distribution amplifier expansion options, selectable signal reclocking and integrated status and optical power metering.
The modules handle a range of signals including NTSC/PAL/SECAM video, SDI and HD SDI, multichannel audio, RS232/422 data, L-Band, POV camera links and Ethernet (10/100 and Gig-E).
