Gefen Showcases New Fiber Optic Extender for 3GSDI
Booth 2020, Las Vegas, NV – A new GefenPRO 3GSDI FO (Fiber Optic) Extender uses a single strand of single-mode fiber optic cable to deliver a 3GSDI signal up to 1.25 miles (2km) in distance. Engineered in a dongle-style enclosure, this modular extender saves space while transporting the 1080p full HD resolutions of 3GSDI. An attractive price point makes this new solution a viable alternative to similar existing products that go for a longer distance.
“The goal of Gefen has always been to provide a wide range of products at different price points so professionals can select an ideal solution at a good price,” explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. “The addition of this new shorter range 3GSDI FO Extender complements our fiber based products and offers a lower price point for shorter range applications.”
Installation couldn’t be much simpler, requiring the sender unit to be connected to the 3GSDI source and the receiver unit to be connected to the remote display. A pre-terminated strand of multi-mode fiber optic cable connects local and remote locations, delivering video with audio flawlessly. As a GefenPRO product, the 3GSDI FO Extender includes 24/7 technical support from Gefen.
