Multidyne Intros Optical Matrix Router with Copper Support
MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems has introduced the EOS-5000, an optical matrix router that supports copper signals and fiber optic multimode and single-mode fiber feeds.
The EOS-5000, available from 36×36 up tp 144×144 in one chassis, supports data rates from 10 Mbps up to 10Gbps, including 3G HDSDI video and all standard SDI video formats in the copper and optical domain.
Also, by proving copper inputs and outputs a local monitor can receive a copper input directly from the router. The optical output will no longer require a conversion from optical to copper, saving money and space.
“The EOS-5000 is the ideal choice to route optical and copper signals within the same platform,” says Fred Scott, VP of Sales and Business Development for MultiDyne. “Users will also gain the abilety to cross convert between optical or copper at the same time.”
The optical interface offers choices on a per-port basis to configure each blade with the signal capacity required for each project: SFP transceivers for Fibre Channel (HSSDC-2), 3G SDI and Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45), Multimode or Single-mode fiber optic SFP/SFP & transceivers. The EOS-5000 hot-swappable power supplies, controllers and transceivers makes it an easy system to support.
The EOS-5000 features a front panel programmable LCD display with setup menu and diagnostics along with automatic failover, redundant controllers.
