Telecast Fiber Systems debuts TeleCube Modular Media Interface family
Telecast Fiber Systems debuted at IBC2009 its TeleCube Modular Media Interface (MMI) family of 3G transmitter and receiver modules. The TeleCube MMI system is designed to offer broadcasters a flexible, cost-effective I/O solution for distribution of HD-SDI signals via fiber optics as well as copper cable.
The system combines features such as lasers, detectors, EQ and state-of-the-art line drivers and receivers in a compact, integrated package. Each TeleCube MMI module allows a single I/O port to be configured as an input or output for either fiber or copper. Simply by plugging a TeleCube onto any FPGA-based device, engineers can instantly configure the device for 3Gb/s optical or electrical input and/or output.
The modules are designed for both single-mode and multimode transmissions and can be easily plugged into a common connector, making them ideal for OEM applications. No soldering is necessary, and the devices may be easily disconnected and replaced with one having a different function.
