Kramer introduces matrix switcher for 3G HS-SDI

Kramer Electronics has introduced the VS-88FO matrix switcher for 3G HD-SDI signals, utilising fibre cabling, with a maximum data rate of 3Gbps.

The VS-88FO features single mode SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) SDI fibre optic connectors for the inputs and the outputs.  

Its multiple memory locations store multiple switches as presets (salvos), to be recalled and executed when needed. The unit’s vertical interval switching synchronizes either to an external reference or to the incoming video.

The unit can reach a range of up to 40km (24 miles), depending on the SFP module used, and is compatible with the 690T & 690R Transmitter & Receiver.
