F-16SDI-3G-TX/RX - 16 channel SD HD 3G SDI fiber optic transmitter receiver kit with loop out ouputs

The Thor Fiber F-16SDI-3G-TX/RX  16-channel CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) 3G SDI fiber optic transmitter and receiver system is a powerful solution for long-distance video signal transmission. This setup allows for the simultaneous transmission of 16 separate channels of video signals over a single optical fiber cable. :


  • 16-Channel Capability: This system is equipped to handle up to 16 individual video channels, making it ideal for applications where multiple video sources or feeds need to be transmitted.

  • CWDM Technology: Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing technology is employed to efficiently combine and transmit these channels over a single fiber. Each channel is assigned a specific wavelength, allowing for the simultaneous transmission of multiple signals.

  • 3G SDI Compatibility: It supports 3G SDI up to1080p/60, which is a high-quality digital video standard commonly used in professional broadcasting and video production.

  • Fiber Optic Transmission: The use of optical fiber ensures high bandwidth and reliability, making it suitable for long-distance transmission without signal degradation.

  • Transmitter and Receiver: The system includes both a t19" rack mountable Transmitter and a receiver, ensuring a complete solution for sending and receiving video signals.


  • Long-Distance Transmission: The use of fiber optics enables the transmission of video signals over significant distances, making it suitable for applications where traditional copper BNC cables would be impractical.

  • Signal Quality: Fiber optics maintain the quality of the video signals over long distances, ensuring that the transmitted video is of high quality and free from interference.

  • Space and Cable Reduction: With the ability to transmit 16 channels over a single fiber, this system eliminates the need for multiple copper BNC cables, reducing clutter and saving space in a broadcast or production environment.

  • Ease of Installation: The system simplifies the installation process by using fiber optic cables with standard ST/PC connectors, which are thinner and more flexible than copper cables, making them easier to manage and route.

  • Versatility: This system is versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, including live events, television studios, and remote broadcasting, where reliable and high-quality video transmission is essential.

In summary, the 16-channel CWDM 3G SDI fiber optic transmitter and receiver system offers a robust solution for long-distance, high-quality video signal transmission while eliminating the need for cumbersome copper BNC cables, making it a valuable asset in professional broadcasting and video production environments.


  • 16 CWDM optical multiplexing technology.
  • Each SDI signal has its own laser, and it's being converted to a different optical wavelength.
  • The transmitter has a Loop out output for easy signal monitoring or SDI signal re-transmission.

  • The receiver also has a loop out, meaning that each SDI input on the TX side has dual output on the RX side, allowing additional monitoring or retransmission on the RX side

  • Compliant with SMPTE ST 425-3, ST 425-5, 259M-2006, 292-2006, 424M-2006.
  • Supports transmission of SMPTE 305M-2005, 310M-2004, 344M-2000, and DVB-ASI.
  • Supports 16 3G SDI, 480i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p/60
  • Supports up to 4x 4K/UHD at 60Hz (using 4x 3G SDI lines) and up to 8 x 4K/UHD at 30Hz (using 2x 3G SDI lines).
  • Standard ST/PC fiber connector.
  • The signal is equalized and re-clocked prior to fiber optic transmission.
  • The receiver features four re-clocked SDI outputs.
  • Supports pathological patterns over the entire link budget and operating temperature range.
  • Supports any Single-Mode fiber.
  • Supports 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs with or without embedded audio and data.
  • Supports up to 16 channels of embedded audio per SDI signal.
  • Supports 4K/UHD resolutions up to 60 fps.
  • 10 or 21 dB Optical Link Budget @ 2.97 Gbps for High Power, Longer Distance versions.
  • Standard & High-Powered, long-distance transmitter versions are available up to 40, 80, and 120Km.
  • Available in 19" rack-mount versions.
  • Internal Universal Power supply - 110VAC to 240VAC.
