Video transport modules offering a complete solution for extending SD/HD/3G-SDI video from copper coaxial connectors over long distances using a single fiber optic connection.

easyLINK

Overview

PESA’s easyLINK fiber optic video converter and extender modules offer a complete, palm-size solution for extending SD/HD/3G-SDI video from copper coaxial connectors over long distances using a single fiber optic connection. The easyLINK transmitter (TX) module converts a coaxial input signal to a fiber optic transport; and a receiver (RX) module converts a fiber optic input signal to a coaxial output.  Each device is powered from an included external power supply module.

easyLINK transports a single channel of SMPTE 259M, 292M, or 424M serial digital video over singlemode fiber and requires no user adjustments. Connect devices and add power to achieve perfect signal quality up to 10Km at 3Gbps.

While normally used as a TX/RX pair, an individual TX or RX module may be used stand-alone for coax to fiber, or fiber to coax conversion applications.
