4 BNC Input 4 SFP Output 3G-SDI Converter (Fiber or other SFP modules not included)

Product thumbnail

Matrix Switch Corporation SDI SFP converters provide compact, flexible, and low cost solutions for converting between SDI over coax and MSA compatible SDI SFP transmitter and receiver modules.

The MSC-FC4BF converter provides 4 BNC inputs and 4 SFP outputs. The MSA compatible SFP slots support our MSC-SFPTX-F 3G fiber optic transmitter module as well as compatible 3rd party modules.

Please see the MSC-FS44BFL for a more advanced product offering similar BNC to SFP SDI conversion, but with additional 4x4 routing and a control system.

  • Re-clocks standard SDI rates 3G (2.97 Gbit/s), HD (1.485 Gbit/s), and SD (270 Mbit/s)
  • Auto bypass of non-standard SDI rates from 20 Mbit/s to 3 Gbit/s
  • Passes SDI embedded audio and ancillary data
  • Compact enclosure design with a depth of only 4 inches
  • Less than 1 pound
  • External DC power supply
  • Complies with all relevant FCC, U/L, CE, and RoHS requirements
  • Backed by a full 2 year manufacturer parts and labor warranty
