DigitalExcelLinx Model 3762 Broadcast Fiber Optic Transport Platform offers a comprehensive state-of-the-art digital transport solution for broadcasters and cable operators converting from analog to digital video television formats. The Model 3762’s 1RU optical terminals, available at 1310 nm or 1550 nm, has three rear access mounting bays that accept various modules. One module provides power for the chassis and the other installed modules. Two additional bays house hot-swappable video/audio modules. They accommodate either a broadcast quality digitized video module with six audio channels, a SMPTE 259M SDI/DVB-ASI digital video module with a data rate of 19.4-213 Mb/s, and a clock speed of 270 MHz and pre-embedded audio channels, or a two-channel SMPTE 310M digital video module. The user has complete freedom to field-configured a system for one or two channels that support broadcast quality digitized analog, SMPTE 259M SDI/DVB-ASI, or SMPTE 310M depending on their requirements. A CWDM option further expands the capacity of the fiber by combining up to eight wavelengths for transmission over a single fiber. This powerful, flexible system facilitates intra-studio, studio-to-studio, studio-to-tower, studio-to-transmitter, broadcaster-to-cable headend, or special feed back-haul applications. The Model 3762 DigitalExcelLinx complies with UL and FCC requirements.
