Extron FOX HD-SDI-SM 3G-SDI over Fiber Extender

The Extron FOX 3G HD-SDI Fiber Optic Extender enables long haul transmission of 3G-SDI video, with embedded audio and metadata, over a single fiber. Engineered for reliability and exceptional high-resolution image performance, it uses Extron all-digital technology to transmit signals up to 2.97 Gbps including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI. To optimize SDI signal transmission to and from the FOX 3G HD-SDI, input signals are automatically equalized and output signals are reclocked. The FOX 3G HD-SDI can function as a transmitter and a receiver in various user-configurable modes. It is ideally suited for use in digital signage, broadcast and production, rental and staging, and medical applications.


  • Extends 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI signals very long distances over a single fiber — The FOX 3G HD-SDI supports data rates up to 2.97 Gbps, and complies with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards. The FOX 3G HD-SDI P SM also complies with SMPTE 297-2006.
  • Input: BNC connector
  • Outputs: Two BNC connectors
  • Passes embedded audio, ancillary ID and metadata information, and SD/HD-SDTI digital video signals — Passes all data allowed within published SMPTE and ITU digital video standards, including embedded audio, ancillary ID and metadata information, and SDTI, SMPTE 305M, and HD-SDTI, SMPTE 348M, digital video signals.
  • Supports data rates from 270 Mbps to 2.97 Gbps
  • Input equalization and reclocking on buffered outputs — The FOX 3G HD-SDI automatically equalizes incoming signals, and reshapes and restores signals on its buffered outputs.
  • Immunity to pathological signal patterns - FOX 3G HD-SDI P SM — The FOX 3G HD-SDI P SM is immune to pathological signals, including test patterns defined by SMPTE RP 178 and SMPTE RP 198 for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SDI.
  • Dual buffered outputs — Provide additional system capability. When the FOX 3G HD-SDI is configured as a dedicated transmitter, the outputs can also be used for previewing on a local monitor.
  • Daisy-chain capability — When configured as a dedicated receiver, multiple FOX 3G HD-SDI units can be daisy-chained so that displays in multiple locations can be served from a single transmitter location.
  • 3G-SDI transceiver sends to and receives from a second FOX 3G HD‑SDI unit over fiber in bidirectional transceiver mode
  • Available as an 850 nm multimode model for moderate-range transmissions up to 2 km (1.25 miles) and a 1310 nm singlemode model for extreme distances up to 30 km (18.75 miles)
  • Industry standard LC connectors provide reliable physical connectivity and precise fiber core alignment
  • Real-time status LED indicators for troubleshooting and monitoring
  • Compatible with Extron FOX Matrix Switchers for signal distribution systems up to 1000x1000 and larger
  • Compatible with Extron FOX Series distribution amplifiers
  • JITC Certified — Successfully completed interoperability and information assurance testing for use in government applications and other mission-critical environments.
  • 1" (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width metal enclosure — With a low profile enclosure, the FOX 3G HD-SDI can be conveniently and discreetly installed in a variety of locations.
  • External Extron Everlast™ power supply included, replacement part #70-1175-01 — Provides worldwide power compatibility with high‑demonstrated reliability and low power consumption
  • Extron Everlast Power Supply is covered by a 7‑year parts and labor warranty
