The 8943RDA-DFR is a fiber-ready HD/SD/3G-SDI reclocking DA with two dedicated electrical inputs and seven reclocked electrical outputs (in four output pairs). An optional fiber optic sub-board can be installed to provide additional fiber optic inputs and outputs.
The board can equalize up to 90 meters for input 1 (J10) and 100 meters for input 2 (J8) of Belden 1694A cable for HD/3G-SDI. It can distribute either HD/3G-SDI or SD-SDI, making it ideal for mixed format applications or installations where an upgrade to HD/3G is planned. It is also completely DVB ASI compliant.
With its fiber-ready architecture, the 8943RDA-DFR can be configured as a fiber receiver, providing two fiber optic inputs that can be mapped to feed seven electrical outputs (in output pairs). The two fiber optic inputs are both active along with the dedicated electrical inputs. This makes the board ideal where redundant feeds are used.
Using the dual transmitter fiber option, this board can distribute two additional fiber outputs as well as the seven electrical outputs (in output pairs) allowing it to feed both local and remote locations simultaneously. This can also provide redundant fiber feeds.
With the transceiver option, the 8943RDA-DFR makes a flexible DA ready for either fiber in or fiber out applications. The fiber option makes it ideal for receiving signals from distant downlinks or transmitting to remote uplinks.
All parameters can be configured directly from the card edge or via a standard HTML web browser when the 8900NET Network Interface board has been installed. The board operation and configuration, as well as the signal presence and format can be monitored using industry standard SNMP protocol via the 8900NET board.
