Extron expands range with fibre boards

Extron has announced a new 4x4 multi-rate SDI matrix board and two 16x16, 4-Gbps fibre optic matrix boards for the SMX System MultiMatrix, Extron’s modular, field-configurable matrix switching platform.

The new SDI boards are designed for routing multi-rate SDI and HD-SDI serial digital video signals from 19 Mbps to 2.97 Gbps. The boards are fully compliant with the SMPTE 424M standard for 3G-SDI. In addition, two boards can be used together to switch SMPTE 372M dual-link HD-SDI digital video signals. The fibre boards are designed for switching over single or multi-mode fibre, and are compatible with Extron’s FOX range of fibre optic extenders.
