LYNX Technik AG®, provider of software-defined modular interfaces for broadcast as well as professional AV and industrial signal processing applications, announces its new yellobrik CQS 1441, a bi-directional single-link/quad-link 4K/UHD converter for 12G, 6G, 3G and 1.5G.
The yellobrik CQS 1441 is a compact converter that enables single-link 12G-SDI signals to be converted to quad-link 3G-SDI and visa versa (i.e. quad-link 3G-SDI signals to be converted to single-link 12G-SDI). 6G to/from quad-link 1.5G conversions are also supported.
With many facilities still running in a 3G environment, there are many requirements to integrate 4K/UHD signals in 12G SDI into the infrastructure. The CQS 1441 yellobrik enables users to convert UHD signals between quad-link 3G and single-link 12G SDI. Plus, since its bi-directional, a single yellobrik can be used for both inputs and outputs for the application at hand.
Another key feature of this new yellobrik is its 12G fiber option and a 12G loop output. For example, a 4K UHD camera or other input source can be connected via 12G fiber to the yellobrik’s SFP fiber input and the 12G loop connects the yellobrik to a 12G video mixer for signal switching. The CQS 1441 also offers a 12G fiber to 12G coax conversion feature. Regardless of whether customers choose fiber or SDI, they can have the simplicity of running 4K over a single wire.
The intuitive and user-friendly yelloGUI software gives users access to a host of advanced settings and adjustments of the CQS 1441, as with other compatible yellobriks. With yelloGUI users have an enhanced level of yellobrik configuration for advanced features & settings. yelloGUI is complementary to all yellobrik users.
