Quintech Debuts New Fiber Optic Receiver and LNB Power Options at IBC

Quintech Electronics announced new fiber optic features to its products, and will showcase its new field-upgradeable input adapter cards with optional Fiber Optic or LNB power for Quintech’s XTREME 80 and XTREME 32 matrices at IBC.

Quintech’s XTREME 80 and XTREME 32 matrix switches have been adopted by broadcasters, teleports, equipment manufacturers and government agencies for applications such as satellite signal distribution, splitting, combining, monitoring, and redundancy switching.

Available as both fan-out for downlinks and fan-in for uplinks, both matrices share the same modular components thereby minimizing owners’ capital and operating expenses by reducing the number of spare components. The matrices can be purchased with standard RF adapter cards, which can be field-upgraded to add LNB power or fiber optic receive inputs.

The XTREME fiber optic input receivers are designed with a wide wavelength range covering 900 to 1650 nm for reception of any CWDM signal. Their wide dynamic range makes it compatible with many RF-over-Fiber transmit products on the market. Built-in RF amplification is available to compensate for any optical losses.
