The Python 3G from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, 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 two groups of 8-channels of HD-SDI to fiber optic transport, all in a compact 1 RU frame. Select a transmitter and a receiver frame for eight or 16 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 Mb/s to3 Gb/s, the Python 3G allows you to implement it.
143 Mb/s NTSC composite
177 Mb/s PAL composite
270 Mb/s serial component
360 Mb/s serial component and compressed HD
540 Mb/s proprietary
Bundle these two units together to create a single transport system:
PY3-GHRR-W16 8 channels each way, 1 fiber
PY3-JKRR-W16 8 channels each way, 1 fiber
