FPSA1 Series One Channel HD-SDI Point-to-Point Transmission

FPSA1 Series One Channel HD-SDI Point-to-Point Transmission

The FPSA1 series uses the most advanced digital technologies to provide excellent, repeatable performance for today’s broadcast systems. It supports transmission of one simplex SDI interface over one multimode or singlemode optical fibre. The units will support HD and SD/SDI formats and with built in equalization and re-timing, provide true plug-and-play operation and ensure ease of installation with no electrical or optical adjustment needed. LED indicators are provided to clearly show the operational status of the unit. The series is available in compact and 3U chassis card configurations.
