The CQS 1462 is a compact solution designed to bridge 6G/12G SDI Quad Link 2SI/SQD devices and Single Link 1.5G/3G/6G/12G SDI devices. Conversion modes include:

  • Single Link to Quad Link (2SI) [1x12G-SDI ► 4x3G-SDI Level A / 1x6G-SDI ► 4×1.5G-SDI]
  • Single Link to Quad Link (SQD) [1x12G-SDI ► 4x3G-SDI Level A / 1x6G-SDI ► 4×1.5G-SDI]
  • Quad Link (2SI) to Single Link [4x3G-SDI Level A ► 1x12G-SDI / 4×1.5G-SDI ► 1x6G-SDI]
  • Quad Link (SQD) to Single Link [4x3G-SDI Level A ► 1x12G-SDI / 4×1.5G-SDI ► 1x6G-SDI]
  • Auto Quad Link to Single Link
  • Distribution Amplifier mode (1►5+1) [1.5G / 3G / 6G / 12G -SDI]

Operational mode can be selected from the local rotary switch or via the Lynx Centraal or yelloGUI control software. The CQS 1462 can also be used as a 1► 5+1 distribution amplifier if needed. Link identification is possible through on-screen overlays which can be helpful for connectivity problems or link loss.

The module is suitable for all SMPTE standard signals from 1.5G-SDI to 12G SDI (SMPTE 292M, 424M, 2081 and 2082). For optical inputs and outputs, we offer optional SDI SFPs, in both CWDM and non-CWDM variants.
