Optocore introduces optical single and multi-mode MADI transreceiver

Optocore has implemented a world-first transreceiver for its DD2FR-FX optical MADI device, which accepts both single and multi-mode fiber signals.

As a result of this feature, the transceivers can connect to both single-mode and multi-mode third party MADI link partners with the same multi-mode cable.

This initiative is consistent with Optocore’s aim to introduce more versatile products with expanded capacity, and reduced cost and carbon footprint. In the case of the new DD2FR-FX, this required a re-engineering of Optocore’s previous MADI network device in order to enable it to function within Optocore’s new Cat5-based SANE environment, with its 2Gbit fiber network.

Optocore support engineer Maciej Janiszewski, commented: “This new MADI transceiver provides our customers with more flexibility, and means that they no longer need to order the DD2FR-FX with the appropriate MADI transceiver version to match their equipment. In other words, customers can now simply switch from multi-mode to single-mode MADI transmission without the need for expensive transceiver replacement.”

The transceiver will be incorporated as a standard feature in every DD2FR-FX device.
