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.
