MUXLAB VIDEO EXTENDERS - 6G-SDI - Over Cat5E and Cat6 UTP
Intended for extending 'SDI based cameras or other SDI sources up to 4K resolution' over standard UTP cable, the 500730 '6G-SDI Extender over UTP' will carry a 6G SDI video signal over up to 100 metres of cable between the transmitter and receiver.
A 3G-SDI or HD-SDI signal can be extended up to 150m. The maximum resolution supported is 4K. Suggested applications include cinema recording, movie making, studio production and news coverage / live reporting.
Power is required by the receiver, which remotely powers the transmitter over the Cat5E/Cat6 cable. The input source for the transmitter is 'HD-SDI using single, two or four coax cables, 3G-SDI using single or two coax cables, and 6G-SDI using a single coax cable'. The kit 'supports all 6G channel configurations (1/2/4)', with a maximum supported resolution of 4096x2160 at 24/25 frames per second, 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second. SDI link recognition and configuration is automatic as is 'long-reach' mode, 150 metres, when a 3g-SDI or HD-SDI signal is detected.
The transmitter has, on the front panel, five BNC connectors, for four SDI inputs and one sync connection. The rear has an Ethercon RJ45 socket for the UTP cable, while the top has a mini USB connection for firmware updates and control, as well as status LEDs for each of the four SDI connections plus 'Sync', 'Act' and 'Pwr'. It has multiple 1/4 inch threads 'for camera mounting or equipment attachment'.
The receiver has four BNC connectors for the SDI outputs, plus one for a sync input connection, an RJ45 socket for the UTP cable and a co-axial power inlet, all on the back panel. The front panel has a mini-usb socket, for firmware updates, and status LEDs, one for each SDI channel plus '6G', 'Act', 'Pwr' and 'RJ45 Sync'.
