Compact platform for bulk optical conversion

Evertz is expanding its range of solutions for bulk optical conversion with the 3505FR. It provides low-cost and high-density optical conversion of DVB-ASI, SDI, HD-SDI and 3 Gb/s signals. Evertz describes the 3505FR as the industry’s most compact, reliable and flexible SFP-based platform. The unit can have up to 32 or 64 dual channel Evertz SMPTE-compliant SFP modules for up to 128 optical-electrical (OE) and/or electrical-optical (EO) conversions in 2RU. The 3505FR allows for each slot to be used as a transmitter or receiver position (based on SFP), thus providing maximum flexibility in bi-directional applications. It utilises Evertz patent pending technology which places all active components on the hot-swappable SFP’s, while keeping the mounting frame completely passive for maximum reliability. The SFPs are available with 1310nm and CWDM lasers. – Michael Burns8.B40
