3G-SDI SFP Solution for HD Video Transmission over Fiber

Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) has standards for handling high definition video signals with pathological pattern. SMPTE 292M is a standard published by SMPTE which expands upon SMPTE 259M and SMPTE 344M allowing for bit-rates of 1.485 Gbit/s, and 1.485/1.001 Gbit/s. These bit-rates are sufficient for and often used to transfer uncompressed high definition video.

SMPTE 424M is a standard published by SMPTE which expands upon SMPTE 259M, SMPTE344M, and SMPTE 292M allowing for bit-rates of 2.970 Gbit/s and 2.970/1.001Gbit/s over a single-link coaxial cable. These bit-rates are sufficient for 1080p video at 50 or 60 frames per second.

Gigalight provides a series of 3G-SDI SFP modules as one of the best solution for HD video transmission over fiber. These HD 3G-SDI video SFP modules are available in 3G-SDI SFP transceiver, 3G-SDI SFP receiver only modules, and 3G-SDI SFP transmitter only modules.
