Telecast Rattler Mini HD/SDI Fiber Optic Link

Telecast's Rattlers are miniature fiber optic serial digital video transmission modules that offer the industry's broadest range of digital rates while maintaining the signal quality that broadcasters demand. Rattlers handle your HD-SDI as well as your standard definition signals. No matter what your format, the Rattlers allow you to transmit:

- 19.4 Mbps SMPTE 310M
- 143 to 540 Mbps SMPTE 259M
- 1.5 Gbps SMPTE 292M HDTV

They also work on both multimode and singlemode fiber. That means you are always ready, no matter what fiber you have available. At just three inches in length, these tiny modules can be deployed almost anywhere.

Red TX and Blue RX; Rattlers are your HD/SDI problem your pocket.

The (red) transmitter modules include equalization for long lengths of coaxial cable, so you can use them at nearly any point in your HD/SDI chain.

These modules are inter-operable with Telecast's Python™ series, Viper™I and II series frames and modules, and you can expand the systems that you already have to create a wide variety of network topologies.

The Rattler TX accepts a 75ohm coaxial input and converts it into an optical stream via a standard ST connector. The RX unit reconverts the uncompressed signal back to BNC output.

Both the transmitter and receiver (blue) modules include LED indicators to display Power On, Link Status and Received Optical Power levels. These provide critical system diagnostic information at a glance without a need for additional test equipment, such as an optical power meter.

The Rattlers use their own power supply or accept any DC voltage from 5 to 16 volts. A mini-USB jack is provided so you can even operate four Rattlers from a 4-port powered USB hub. No vulnerable power dongles to break off. This jack also includes provisions for SNMP monitoring.
