Phoenix is a modular fiber transport system that allows users to configure a system consisting of multiple video, audio, data and contact signals in a variety of topologies including point to point, linear and split linear, self heating ring, and mixed configurations in a drop/repeat/insert environment.
A Phoenix system can support 255 nodes, 16 duplex videos, 16 duplex audios, 16 duplex streams and 32 duplex contacts. Up to 16 full-frame real-time video feeds can be distributed simultaneously across a network. Because the video is not compressed, each signal comes through the fiber as broadcast-quality images.
The audio module, which occupies one audio slot, can input and output four audio channels. Each node can support up to four audio modules for a total of 16 duplex audio channels.
The audio module will support audio test pattern generation and board status istransmitted serially to the controller in the chassis's front panel. Each audio channel will have a selectable 600-ohm termination, as well as a high and low input range to accommodate input signals as great as +18dBu and maximizing signal-to-noise ratios for low volume inputs.
The interface connector is four ganged RJ-45 connectors. A breakout box with screw terminals is also included to give the user maximum flexibility in determining field wiring.
