Item Part Number:





The Route66 Series are fiber interfaces that routes multiple professional video and audio signals, such as SD/HD/3G-SDI over the same optical fiber. The 2RU interface has a 40×40 optical MUX and router for up to 24 BNC-SDI 3G/HD/SD video ports, up to 20 duplex or 36 simplex protocol-independent LC fiber ports. The Route66 also features a VSync board
with selectable synchronization formats from Word, BB and Tri-level.
