The SDV-FTRX-U is designed for high-quality, IP routable, AV extension with minimum latency. Every Transceiver can be configured to function as either a Transmitter or a Receiver, enhancing the flexibility of any installation. By using a sophisticated ultra-light compression scheme (lossless for most content) it's a great solution for extending 4K audio/ video streams (HDMI or DisplayPort) and data. Advanced HDMI content such as HDR (High Dynamic Range), 10-bit colour and multi-channel HD Bitstream audio can be transmitted in pass-through mode. The use of interchangeable, field replaceable, SFP+ modules allows for transmission distances of up to 30km (Maximum transmission distance depends on the SFP+ modules used). Multiple control and data signals may also be transmitted along with the audio and video, including IR, RS-232, USB 2.0, and Ethernet.
When combined with the optional control centre or control software, the functionality of the Transceiver expands exponentially. Multiple Transceivers may be combined with one or more 10-Gigabit fiber Ethernet switches and the units can be used together to form a distributed video matrix, a multi-viewer system, or a video wall system adding to their flexibility in large event installations. The integrated USB hub of each Transceiver can be configured to be in USB Host or Device Mode and can function as a simple point to point KVM extension, freely routed between any two endpoints, or it can be configured into a special "Simultaneous" mode, allowing up to 7 Host Mode Transceivers to extend their USB ports to a single Device Mode Transceiver. This type of USB KVM routing flexibility enables a wide range of multi-user, control room, or on-demand installation scenarios.
The built-in EDID and HDCP management functionality enables the unit to fit into every situation. Basic configuration of the unit can be achieved via front panel buttons with an On-Screen Display (OSD). Advanced control requires optional control centre, or control software, and a LAN connection.
