New SDI Converters from MuxLab Enable Equipment Integration

New Solutions Enhance the Ability to Support All SDI Resolutions

LAS VEGAS, NV BOOTH C8948 – MuxLab unveils two new SDI converters at NAB, giving broadcasters the ability to quickly up and down scale signals to enable a high-quality, very stable signal transmission. By converting different resolutions, these solutions provide an easy method of integrating broadcast equipment and displays.

The 12G-SDI to Quad/Dual Link SDI Converter (model 500725) down-scales a 12G-SDI signal to a lower bandwidth dual link 6G-SDI or quad link 3G-SDI format.  The lower bandwidth standards are output via traditional coaxial cable using BNC connectors. The Converter has one BNC input supporting 12G-SDI, and four BNC outputs supporting either dual link 6G-SDI or quad link 3G-SDI signals.

“These lower bandwidth signals offer a more reliable signal to work with and allow 4K sources to be used with existing SDI equipment, curtailing some of the costs associated with upgrading studio equipment,” explained MuxLab’s Director of Product Management, Joe Teixeira.

The Quad/Dual Link SDI to 12G-SDI Converter (model 500726) up-scales a video source or camera using dual link 6G-SDI or quad link 3G-SDI and outputs a 12G-SDI signal. The 12G-SDI standard supports higher resolutions, frame rates, and color fidelity, providing four times the bandwidth of HD (3G-SDI), which is ideal for connecting to a display that supports 4K@60Hz. It provides four BNC inputs and one BNC output.

Both Converters are compatible and can be implemented in the same system to enable an easy, reliable method of system integration in the studio.
