Telecast Fiber Intros Six-Output DA

Telecast-Terrapin-with-lexan-0312Telecast Fiber Systems today announced the launch of the Terrapin FTR-D6, a 3-Gbps fiber optic video transceiver that also incorporates a six-output distribution amplifier.

The new Terrapin FTR-D6 features both a fiber optic (ST) input and a copper (BNC) input, as well as a fiber optic output (ST) and six copper (BNC) outputs. A single push-button operation makes it easy to switch among four modes but it is also RS232- and network-controllable as well. The four modes include:

  • Enabling the Terrapin to act as an HD/SDI distribution amplifier with six BNC outputs and an ST output.
  • Enabling a typical “tap and drop” installation in which the Terrapin is used as a receiver and re-transmitter to feed six different monitor locations.
  • In Mode 3, the Terrapin acts as a transceiver to receive a signal from a distant location and then transmit it via the six BNC outputs.
  • Or, you can use the Terrapin as a pure SDI distribution amplifier and fiber booster, enabling the Terrapin to provide multiple outputs from a single BNC signal.
