We’ve recently made several orders of an item from FieldCast and wanted to highlight it as it’s been so popular. We use this a lot! What is this popular little item? It is the FieldCast 12G optical transceiver!
So, what does it do? The optical transceiver can work in either direction as a transmitter or receiver. It is compatible with a wide range of optical fiber video equipment, such as our favorite BlackMagic items.
We like to use these with the BlackMagic Mini SDI to Fiver Converters. It fits inside a special SFP slot on the converter. If you didn’t already know, high quality 4k video has trouble going long distances, so this box, plus the SDI to Fiber Converter work together to convert a signal that would normally go over SDI cable only a short distance, because of copper, to go a long distance over fiber optic cabling.
If you’d like more information about sending video signals you can contact us at any time!
