Vidblox 3G-SL (RX)

project posted:

PESA’s VidBlox 3G-SL Fiber and Coax Scaler/Receiver unit accepts an input of HD/3G video and converts it to single link DVI or VGA. Resolutions up to 1920X1200 are supported for true High Definition performance. HD/3G video signals are connected to the inputs and DVI/VGA devices are connected to the output. When a high definition SMPTE 292M or 424M formatted video signal is connected, the built-in scaler technology allows proper formatting of the computer generated video output signal.

Engineered to the latest 3G-SDI high resolution image performance specifications, the PESA VidBlox series offers perfect pixel-for-pixel transmission of DVI computer video images up to 1920X1200; including 1080p/60. Vidblox includes EDID emulation coding and internal test patterns.

Offering both coax and fiber inputs in the same module, the 3G-SL opens up a wide range of capabilities for mission critical redundancy or system backup requirements. With the optional fiber ports activated, systems can be setup to receive long haul video transports from well over 10km away and with the parallel coax inputs, local sources can be connected from distances as far as 80m away.

• Accepts inputs from SD/HD/3G high definition video sources
• Input connections for fiber or copper ports
• Resolution outputs up to 1920X1200@60Hz (WUXGA)
• Supports both singlemode or multimode fiber inputs in the same unit
• Converts SD/HD/3G to DVI, VGA, RGB, RGBHV
• Accepts 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p inputs
• Compliant with SMPTE ST-259-C, 292, 424
• Up to two fiber and two coax inputs per unit
• Full set of LED indicators for monitoring and troubleshooting
• Auto memory – module remembers last know setup
• EDID emulation mode
• 10/100 Network Connection (control software optional)
• “Auto-black” configuration to keep hot-plug detect active during switch away mode
• Rack mount and under-the-table mounting brackets available
• Redundant power in 2RU extender frame

Because transmission over fiber is inherently secure and immune to outside interference, fiber applications are favored in government, military, and medical environments. The 3G-SL supports both singlemode and multimode fiber cabling with an optional duplex SFP pluggable fiber input module. Each port supports input data rates up to 1080p/60. Additionally, each 3G-SL module comes standard with two BNC ports allowing two additional 1080p/60 input ports. With a total of four input ports, the 3G-DL can be configured to select any one of up to four incoming signals. Primary and secondary sources can be pre-set via the Cattrax setup program or auto-detected.

The 3G-SL de-embeds auxiliary audio to an unbalanced stereo audio output. Also included on the input transport video from a 3G-SL transmitter is resolution-format data allowing each unit to properly communicate the specific resolution and format of the data received. Each 3G-SL can be controlled and configured using the local USB port; or using the optional Cattrax software, up to 1024 modules can be managed or monitored over a network connection. A wide range of adjustments and calibration features are available with Cattrax allowing output scaling, progressive to interlace conversion, test pattern setup, audio muting, and a large array of signal measurements for fiber and coax inputs.

In addition to DVI and VGA, each 3G-SL can be set up to output other component video inputs such as RGsB, RGBS, and RGBHV where sync levels are different than traditional VGA. Each 3G-SL can be used in conjunction with all PESA 3G-SDI routers and distribution gear.
