IBC NEWS: MuxLab Presents Comprehensive Selection of SDI Extenders.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, IBC BOOTH 3.A30 – When it comes to distributing HD/3G/6G-SDI signals throughout a facility, studio or lab, MuxLab offers several methods of signal extension.

The new SDI over IP 4K Uncompressed Extender (model 500767) will be demonstrated live on the show floor, connecting a camera feed to multiple displays. Numerous sources and displays can connect through this Extender to a 10Gig Ethernet switch to support point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint configurations. A virtual matrix of cameras, mixers, displays and other equipment can be easily installed and accessed anytime, all managed from a central location. For point-to-point extensions, integrators can use multimode fiber to connect a source to its display up to 400 meters in distance, or CAT5/6 up to 30 meters. All scenarios support uncompressed video resolutions up to 4K@30Hz (4:4:4), providing unaltered high quality video transmission with zero latency.

MuxLab’s 3G-SDI /RS232 over IP Extender (model 500756) delivers broadcast quality 3G/HD/SD-SDI video with embedded audio over a LAN. It’s a low-latency solution that can be configured in a variety of ways, providing a cost-effective alternative to a dedicated SDI matrix switch, supporting point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint configurations. It can extend a source up to 100 meters from the LAN, and allows users to send SDI over CAT5/6 cable instead of using the traditional coax infrastructure, curtailing costs while simplifying the installation. This solution is ideal for live video delivery around a facility or running media exchanges between locations.

The 6G-SDI Extender over UTP with Ethernet (model 500733) allows cameras and other AV sources to be extended from the display using industry-standard CAT5e/6 cable up to 150 meters in distance. Users can extend four HD-SDI feeds, two 3G-SDI feeds or one 6G-SDI feed over a single cable. Two Ethernet ports are available and may be used as a return channel to enable easy AV monitoring, tally light, talk-back and camera control unit (CCU). RS232 pass-through allows users to control end devices.

The 6G-SDI Extender over Fiber with Return Channel (model 500734) extends 6G-SDI up to 80 kilometers over single mode fiber cable or up to 400 meters over multimode fiber optic cable. This product can simultaneously transmit up to 9Gbps of data throughout over the fiber link, and allows for versatile combinations of sources. It supports a simultaneous transmission of mixed signals such as one 6G-SDI + one 3G-SDI, or two 3G-SDI + two HD-SDI, and many other combinations up to 9Gbps. RS232 pass-through provides for tally light, camera control unit (CCU) and control of end devices.
