The Python 3G is your answer to lowering the cost of digital video distribution, simplifying your cable plant and eliminating all concerns about distance, interference and grounding. The Python 3G converts up to 2 groups of 8-channels of HD-SDI to fiber optic transport,
all in a compact 1RU frame. Select a transmitter and a receiver frame for eight or sixteen channels, for example, in one direction. Select two transceiver frames for eight channels in each direction.
In addition, Python 3G uses CWDM optical multiplexing options to carry up to 16 HD signals on a single optical fiber.
The Python 3G offers the industry's broadest range of digital transmission rates while maintaining the quality that broadcasters demand. It supports numerous interface standards, including applicable SMPTE, ATSC, and DVB recommendations. No matter what your format, from 19.4 Mbps to 3 Gbps, the Python 3G allows you to implement it.
