Lynx Technik follows the Yellobrik road
Three Yellobrik multi-channel embedders/de-embedders have been rolled out by Lynx Technik AG, once again expanding the range of compact signal processor solutions.
Among them is the eight channel 3G/HD/SD audio embedder/de-embedder PDM 1284 B/D, which is available in two versions for either balanced or unbalanced AES audio. Next is the PDM 1284B, a multifunctional AES audio embedder/de-embedder for unbalanced audio offering both four channel and two channel modes plus cascading options. Finally, the PDM 1284D is intended for balanced AES audio over four I/O.
Both the PDM 1284B and PDM 1284D automatically detect the audio format and deactivate the sample rate converters to preserve encoded bit streams such as DolbyE.
Also new from the manufacturer is the PDM 1382, an analogue embedder/de-embedder. The unit is described as selectively de-embedding four channels within any audio group of an SDI video signal to any of the analogue outputs. It can also simultaneously embed up to four channels of analogue audio to replace the previously de-embedded signals. Again, the units can be cascaded, while optional fibre I/O is also available across all of the models. Another common feature is ‘auto black’, which uses a black video frame if no SDI input is present, meaning audio is embedded even when no video source is present.
Finally, Lynx Technik has launched two serial/GPI fibre transceivers in the shape of the ODT 1510 (designed to operate at distances of up to 10km) and the ODT 1540 (which operates at up to 40km). The two modules allow both serial data communications and GPI I/O to be extended over the same fibre link. The ODT 1540 is also CWDM compatible with 18 wavelength selections for multiplexed fibre installations.
