Telecast shows HD/SDI mini transceiver at IBC
Telecast’s highly compact Rattler modules provide interference-free transmission of digital video signals.
At the IBC 2005 conference, Telecast Fiber Systems showed it new Rattler mini HD/SDI fiber optic transmitter and receiver modules, which offer interference-free transmission of digital video signals in a compact package that also includes visual diagnostic indicators.
The Rattler's red transmitter module accepts an uncompressed SDI signal on a 75ohm coax input, equalizing up to 153yds of coaxial cable at HD transfer speeds, and converts it into an optical data stream via a standard ST connector. The blue receiver module at the other end of the link reconverts the signal back to an electrical HD/SDI signal via a BNC output. The durable, 3in devices weigh 1.8oz and receive power from DC adapters or conventional powered USB hubs via the Rattler's mini-USB connector.
