Thor compact SDI fiber extender kits are designed to increase the range of digital SD-SDI or HD-SDI video signals over singlemode fiber optic cable. Single channel SDI fiber links are highly compact units that are suitable for a wide range of applications. Common uses include mounting on broadcasting cameras to simplify cable distribution. Another common application is for high end security systems.
- Supports full rate HD-SDI @ 1.5Gbps or lower SDI or ASI digital video
- Transports embedded audio channels as well as SDI ancillary data
- Return path serial RS-485 channel for controlling equipment on Tx end
- Link alarm indicators on both Tx & Rx indicate a problem with the fiber
The F-M1SDI platform is ideal for security applications where the RS-485 serial data channel can be used to control pan, tilt, and zoom controllers at the camera mount. Thor F-M1SDI fiber optic SDI transmitters and receivers use ST/PC fiber connectors and BNC video cables to ensure that any cable is not accidentally pulled out of the device once the equipment is installed.
