Example OG-FiDO-2T-12G Signal Flow Diagram
This diagram shows six openGear OG-FiDO-T-12G-ST cards being used in an OG-X-FR rack frame, which highlights the high density capability of the openGear platform. The studio sets each contains a total of six 12G-SDI cameras connected to six OG-FiDO-T-12G-ST cards, which provide the 12G-SDI to fiber ST conversion. Fiber runs are then extended up to 10km to an OB production truck with six OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST cards in an OG-X-FR rack frame. The Production Gallery receives six discrete camera feeds as 12G-SDI via the OG-FiDO-R-12G-ST, driving the gallery video monitors with ultra low latency.
