Opticomm has introduced the OptiLinx OLX-3000 optical switching platform, which is capable of switching digital signals up to 4.25Gb/s with any of its 144 ports.
The 4RU chassis OLX-3000 is a multi-purpose, non-blocking transparent switch that provides high-speed switching between ports with minimal effect on overall network latency.
It is designed to accept up to three modular port cards with up to 48 Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver modules per port card. Each SFP transceiver module provides the physical ports for one input-output pair.
The Optilinx platform can be used to send VGA video for one application and send SDI video for another. Using remote Linxview "drag and drop" functions, it is possible to broadcast any video signal to multiple locations. The approach minimizes the number of optical transmitters by multicasting and reconfiguring video distribution at any time, on the fly.
