The Model 400 SDI-Over-Fibre Transport System is a high-performance, cost-effective, rack-mount solution for distributing digital video signals over short and medium distances. The system is compatible with all common broadcast serial digital video formats and is suitable for use in remote trucks, live-event video distribution, and fixed links associated with broadcast and production facilities. Several Model 400 versions are available, providing a range of input and output configurations. This document features the Model 400-12T and Model 400-12R units.
