MuxLab Debuts New Extenders Supporting 6G-SDI

MuxLab has introduced new extenders, including a 6G-SDI Extender over UTP with Ethernet and a 6G-SDI Extender over Fiber with Return Channel.

MuxLab said both systems allow cameras and other SDI sources to be extended from the display using either CAT5/6 or fiber cable at 4K resolutions.

The 6G-SDI Extender over UTP with Ethernet extends 6G-SDI over industry-standard Cat5e/6 cable to nearly 500 feet in distance. Users can extend four HD-SDI feeds, two 3G-SDI feeds or one 6G-SDI feed over a single cable.

An Ethernet return channel enables AV monitoring and talk-back. RS232 pass-through provides for tally light, camera control unit (CCU) and control of end devices.

MuxLab 6G-SDI Extender Over Fiber with Return Channel

The 6G-SDI Extender over Fiber with Return Channel extends 6G-SDI to nearly 50 miles over a single mode fiber cable or up to 437 yards over multimode fiber optic cable. Users can extend HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and 6G-SDI feeds over the cable.

This product supports multi-channel transmission and can simultaneously transmit up to 9Gbps of data through-put over the transmission link between the TX and RX, and supports simultaneous mixed signals such as one 6G-SDI signal plus one 3G-SDI, or two 3G-SDI signals plus two HD-SDI signals.

The device supports one input and one output SDI port, plus three directional SDI ports that can be individually configured as input or output. This flexibility allows for up to four source ports and one return channel, or up to one source port and four return channels, or anything in between. An SDI return channel is provided for AV monitoring and talk-back. RS232 pass-through provides for tally light, camera control unit (CCU) and control of end devices.

MuxLab’s 6G-SDI Fiber Extender Kit transmits 6G-SDI over 12 miles using a single mode fiber cable in a point-to-point configuration at all specified bit rates. This kit transmits up to 6.0Gbps of digital video within broadcasting facilities and among professional equipment, making it well suited for post-production, mobile video, live events and medical imaging.
