Lynx Technik To Announce 8K SDI To Fiber Converter At IBC

Lynx Technik will introduce its new 8K SDI to Fiber and Fiber to 8K SDI converter at IBC.

Part of Lynx Technik’s Series 5000 product line, the DVD 5480 HO module supports video formats up to 8K SDI. It is designed with both a fiber and electrical interface.

As an 8K SDI to fiber converter, the company said the module transports and converts up to 8K-SDI (12G, 6G, 3G, HD, SD) over optical fiber cable and vice-versa. Operating as a 12G-SDI re-clocking distribution amplifier, the module carries 4K video on a single cable and is suitable for any SDI video signal up to 12G for 4K applications.

This new card also enables single-link 12G SDI signals to be converted to quad-link 3G-SDI and vice versa. With many facilities still running in a 3G environment, there are multiple requirements to integrate 4K/UHD signals in 12G-SDI into the infrastructure. In this mode, the DVD 5480 HO module enables users to convert UHD signals between quad-link 3G and single-link 12G SDI.

The Series 5000 is Lynx Technik’s rack and card-based modular interface solution that can be configured with any mix of modules from an extensive portfolio.
