Blackmagic OpenGear Converter Optical Fiber Module is a component designed for use in the modular OpenGear system. OpenGear is essentially an open-standards chassis that can be mounted in a rack for conversion and processing work. The chassis accepts different modules to enhance its functionality, allowing the solution to be expanded or scaled at will. This module is designed to simultaneously convert SDI to optical fiber and optical fiber to SDI. It automatically switches between SD, HD, and 3Gbps HD-SDI video standards and each direction is completely independent.
