  • 12G SDI input signals can be demultiplexed to quad link (2SI, 4x3G SDI)
  • Input presence detection with LED indication
  • Microprocessor controlled with internal flash ram for storing configuration
  • Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting when used with Lynx APPolo control system
  • Hot Swappable


The DVD 5480 TO module is a high performance dual channel 12Gbit/s SDI distribution amplifier with optical interfaces and Single Link to Quad Link (2SI) conversion. This module can be used as a single 1>8 or a dual channel 1>4 device. DVD 5480 TO is ideally suited for demanding high quality broadcast and
professional video applications.

In DVD 5480 TO module, the two fiber input ports provided can be switched by the user individually to the internal channels. Each internal channel has a switchable single Link to quad Link (2SI) converter, which can be set to bypass. In bypass mode, the module acts as an optical distribution amplifier.

In “demux” mode, the module will act as a demultiplexer in which the 12G SDI signal on input ports will be demultiplexed into 2SI quad link signal. The DVD 5480 TO module is part of the 5000 series of  CardModules, which offers high quality, modularity and flexibility in a small form factor ideal for applications where space is at a premium. Like other 5000 series CardModules, this module is fully integrated into LYNX APPolo Control system which provides remote control, status monitoring and error reporting for the module.
