Annapolis Junction, MD, June 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- New this InfoComm, FiberPlex Technologies introduces the “Swiss Army Knife” of media transport. Its new FOI-6010 is a universal SFP/SFP+ (small form pluggable) frame that can take any variety of SFP modules, from optical and HD Video to MADI and Ethernet.
The FOI-6010 frame has two cages, one an input cage for SFP plug-ins and the other an output cage for SFP plug-in modules. Plug-in SFPs from FiberPlex come in SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and the newer 6G-UHD for using and converting between media formats, as well as full duplex and BiDi optical, HDMI/DVI, 10/100/1G Ethernet and MADI. The frame also takes any standard SFP or SFP+ module by third-party vendors. “With so many standards for sound, video, and transport, this provides a way to make it all work together in a plug-and-play frame that’s quick and easy to use in the field,” said Buddy Oliver, President of FiberPlex Technologies, which manufactures digital transport and communications products.
The FOI-6010 supports up to 10 Gbps per slot for high-bandwidth applications. New SFP modules by FiberPlex this InfoComm are MADI, 3G-SDI, and 6G-UHD SFP, all of which can plug into the FIO-6010 frame or into FiberPlex’ popular active wave WDM16 multiplexer.
A "uFAC" micro-USB interface provides full control and reporting of any SFP/SFP+ registers including settings for video interface and link statistics, SFP status, etc.
FiberPlex is targeting its new SFP products for television, live production, conferencing, corporate data and other applications requiring universal use and conversion between media and transport formats.
For live sound production, for example, technicians can plug in a single-mode optical SFP for the transport feed from the venue back to the remote van and a MADI SFP on the input side of the FOI-6010 for 64x64 MADI compatibility with gear used on location. That same FOI-6010 frame can be used for a video sportscast the next night with just a change of SFP to run HD-SDI from a camera in the stands to the video switcher.
The FOI-6010 can be used to slowly migrate equipment from standard definition to high definition video, or to interoperate multimode fiber optic cable with single-mode fiber optic cabling. This SFP frame works in conjunction with FiberPlex’s popular WDM16 multiplexer, which takes the same SFP modules as the FOI-6010 to multiplex a number of cameras, sound or other media elements.
FOI-6010 conversion and uses include:
· Video format conversion
· Fiber optic repeater
· Optical standard duplex to single fiber bidirectional (BiDi) transport
· Multimode to single-mode converter
· 10/100/1G Ethernet to duplex or BiDi optical
· ASI, SD-SDI, 3G-SDI to duplex or BiDi optical
· HDMI/DVI to duplex or BiDi optical
· MADI to duplex or BiDi optical
· 6G-UHD to duplex or BiDi optical
The new FOI-6010 will be at booth 820 during the InfoComm convention, along with FiberPlex’ popular WDM16 and LightViper audio transport as well as its new Live Production Toolbox with all the equipment needed for live applications.
