SeaView Systems’ dual channel HD-SDI video to fiber converter provides the ability to convert HD-SDI media and lower definition format video, such as typically generated by HD cameras in underwater applications, and transmit the data to surface on fiber where it is converted back to HD-SDI for viewing and recording. It does this in a very compact PC-104 package which may be run in a stand-alone mode or may be stacked and run in conjunction with SeaView’s SVS-109 Optical Multiplexer, the SVS-209 Gbit Ethernet switch and/or other industry standard cards.

No data compression is performed in the conversion of HD-SD so no artifacts are introduced during conversion.

The surface card is provided with two output connectors per channel in order to provide users with signal to both a viewing monitor and a digital video recorder.

The HD-SDI converter may be stacked neatly on top of SeaView’s other optical data cards: the fiber multiplexer and the Gbit Ethernet card.  A space is provided on the SVS-309 to mount SeaView’s compact wave division multiplexer (CWDM) from which all data may be combined onto a single fiber.
