Lynx leads yellobrik road9 February 2011
At BVE 2011 Lynx Technik, provider of modular interfaces, will show its full range of fibre optic signal processing products.
The company will feature its fibre product portfolio, designed to ease network migration from copper to fibre within the broadcast industry. As the demand for high definition signals increases, the need for more bandwidth has accelerated and broadcasters are transitioning from copper to fibre optic cable feeds.
Lynx Technik is expanding its popular yellobrik series and will show the new fibre optic yellobriks such as OTT 1812 Dual-channel SDI to Fiber Transmitter and OTT 1842 Dual-channel SDI to Fiber Transmitter with CWDM support.
Also on display will be new fibre additions to the Series 5000, rack and card-based interfaces.
For Series 5000, three new CWDM compatible modules; an optical transmitter, receiver, and transceiver, provide an electrical to optical and optical to electrical conversion solution for the transmission of SDI content to fibre over long distances.
Three new CWDM multiplexers/demultiplexers are used to combine and transport 18 3G/HD/SD-SDI, nine Ethernet signals, or a mixture of SDI and Ethernet signals over a single fibre connection.
The new Series 5000 fibre optic modules are designed to fit in either the Lynx Technik 1RU or 2RU rack frames and are compatible with all other Series 5000 card modules. Up to 40 fibre channels are supported in a single 2 RU. The fibre I/Os are located on the rear connection panel of the Lynx rack frame, which allows modules to be removed and exchanged without disconnecting any fibre cables. This prevents fibre links from being damaged during module removal and exchange.
