Broadata Communications Introduces New Product for Cost Savings of up to 80% in Deploying Fiber Optic HD-SDI or SDI Video Transmission and Switching Applications
The BCI 1800 series, is a high performance fiber optic digital video switching converter system, specifically designed to work with HD-SDI or SDI Matrix Routers. The 1800 series provides protocol independent digital video signal conversion to transform copper based audio/video routing switches into true optical switches. As a result, fiber optic switching systems can be constructed with a much lower cost budget, when compared with conventional optical switching routers.
Torrance, CA, (PRWEB) March 26, 2007 - Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) announces the release of the new 1800 series, a high performance Fiber Optic Digital Video Switching Converter System. Specifically designed to work with HD-SDI or SDI Matrix Routers, the 1800 series provides protocol independent digital video signal conversion to transform copper based audio/video routing switches into true optical switches. As a result, fiber optic switching systems can be constructed with a much lower cost budget, when compared with conventional optical switching routers. The 1800 units will interface with any brand of HD-SDI or SDI matrix routers, including, but not limited to Extron, Network Electronics, Evertz, AutoPatch/AMC, Utah Scientific, PESA, Sierra Video/Kramer Electronics, Sigma, and many others.
In addition, the 1800 can replace the conventional deployment methodology using point-to-point fiber optic HD-SDI or SDI converters for electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electric conversion. With the new 1800 deployment approach, one can save up to 80% equipment cost for the same HD-SDI or SDI transmission and switching applications. Dr. Freddie Lin, CEO and President of BCI stated, "The 1800 product is a revolutionary product line to significantly reduce overall system cost in fiber optic based digital video transmission and switching installations in broadcast, pro-AV, and the digital signage market". He further stated, an "80% cost savings means one can obtain a back-up (for fault- tolerance protection) digital video transmission and switching system almost for free".
