Product thumbnail Product thumbnail

Matrix Switch Corporation SDI CWDM fiber optic converters provide compact, flexible, and low cost solutions for transmitting multiple coax SDI signals over a single fiber. Utilizing different wavelengths these products can transmit up to 16 channels of 3G-SDI up to 20km.

The MSC-FC16BW converter provides 16 BNC inputs and one 16 channel CWDM fiber optic output, for transmitting up to 16 SDI signals over a single fiber. One MSC-SFPTX-W transmitter module is required per channel (sold separately and factory installed).

Also see the MSC-XF1616BWS for a more advanced product offering BNC SDI to CWDM fiber optic conversion with a combined 16x16 router.

  • Re-clocks standard SDI rates 3G (2.97 Gbit/s), HD (1.485 Gbit/s), and SD (270 Mbit/s)
