Transmission of the first presidential debate Sept. 26 from the University of Mississippi relied on the Pure Digital Fiberlink 3150 Series of HD/SD-SDI fiber-optic systems.
The technical team at “Ole Miss” took advantage of the system’s support for DVB-ASI and used two pairs of 3150s to transmit live debate footage to the world. The first pair used single-mode fiber-optic cabling to distribute the DVB-ASI signal to the overflow venues located across campus. The second pair distributed the signal to the QAM HD cable feed located a mile away using one single-mode fiber to deliver the debate to millions of global viewers.
The Pure Digital Fiberlink 3150 Series offers broadcast-quality HD/SD-SDI transmission over a single fiber. It is SMPTE compliant, ensuring consistent, reliable results, even when connecting through third-party SMPTE 297-2006 devices.
