Extend HD-SDI or SD-SDI digital video signals over long distances with single-mode fiber optic cable
Transport up to eight full rate HD-SDI digital video signals at 1.5Gbps each over a single strand of fiber cable up to 80km long. In addition dual Aux ports provide additional capacity by adding up to 4 analog bi-directional audio, 2 full duplex RS-232/422 links, or 4 contact closure lines per Aux interface. The transmitter inputs support any serial digital signal up to HD-SDI, including SD-SDI. The F-M8SDI platform delivers more functionality and performance of SDI to Fiber than has ever been available on off the shelf equipment.
Each of the 8 HD-SDI signals are fully isolated from each other and operate at a full 1.5 Gbps data rate.This Unit provides a multiple SDI over Fiber channels, each one carries their own embedded audio and ancillary data and operates as if it were the only signal on the fiber. This is accomplished with CWDM technology.
The 8 channel fiber multiplexer platform offers the same 5 pin Aux port custom signal options as the two and four channel units. However functionality is doubled by providing 2 independent Aux links that can be customized for 4 channel bi-directional or unidirectional audio, 1 or 2 duplex RS-232/422 links, or 4 line contact closure.
FC fiber & BNC connectors make sure that the
cable is not accidentally pulled out of the equipment
No Link Alarms
Link status alarm on both the transmitter
and receiver indicate when the link is not functional.
RS-485 return path sends serial data from the
receiver back to the transmitter for device control.

F-M8SDI-ET-TxRx fiber transmission kit. I am currently looking for a solution in our ballpark to get SDI feeds from our RSN/Truck to our control room. We have a current solution that is pretty pieced together and we are running single SDI over single pieces of fiber.
Due to the addition of many more cameras over the past few years we have a bigger demand for more feeds going back and forth between our in-house show and our truck dock connections.
This Kit seems like it might be the perfect solution for us, but I’m wondering if there might be a way to demo this unit first to see if it will work in our environment? We’re in a pretty old stadium and that presents it’s own issues, but we also deal with many signal types. RSN’s will send 720p, sometimes 1080p or 1080i, while we deal with 1080i in-house. So, I’m hoping that this will accept all of those and at the same time.
The H-8MSDI-TX/RX is a perfect and convenient solution for transporting up to 8 HD/SD-SDI signals over a single fiber optic cable. The unit supports SDI up to 1080i/59.94/60Hz.
If you need support for SDI up to 3G SDI, which is 1080p/59.94/60Hz, we have a CWDM solution available. In this solution, each SDI signal is converted to its own optical wavelength using separate lasers and then combined together over one fiber. However, please note that due to the requirement for 8 wavelengths, the solution, the F-8SDI-3G-TX/RX, is more expensive. You can find more information about it here: Link to CWDM SDI Solution.
Unfortunately, we do not offer demos, but we do have a 30-day return policy. In any case, if the devices do not work for you, you can return them for a full refund.
We specialize in Fiber Optic signal transport and optical multiplication. Our devices are widely used in many stadiums, including exclusive use by the bigest Hhockey, footbol and socer organizations
Thanks for the response on the Mark and as a note I am aware that MediaRight reached out as well. I’ve worked with them for a long time so figured from a vendor standpoint it would be good to maybe start some communications there.
I guess my question would be for the H-8MSDI-TX/RX is that we are generally dealing with a few different signals that we have to send via fiber to our control room. Mostly thought they are 720p signals from our RSN broadcasting trucks. Assuming per your email that this system would work. We only have 3G in our stadium and right now have no plans to go up to a 12G signal, so if this device would work then I’m definitely interested.
The F-M1SDI-TR-ET is a high performance, reliable, 1-channel bidirectional HD-SDI video optical transceiver + 10/100 Ethernet transceiver over the single fiber which performs in real-time, loss-free, and high-quality SDI video and Ethernet transmission over an optical single-mode fiber.
The H-SDI-PG is a SD/HD/3G-SDI pattern generator, which supports 2970Mb/s, 1485Mb/s and 270Mb/s color bar pattern with moving circle and embedded 1 KHz audio.
