BroaMan has announced the Repeat8-Nano – the smaller brother of the Repeat48, offering ultra-fast electrical-to-optical, as well as optical-to-electrical conversion.

BroaMan Repeat8-NanoThis complete, plug-and-play, 4K fibre-optic transport comes in a single box and is placed for facilities requiring simple 4K transmission. Considerable effort has been made to hit low price point, while maintaining Broaman’s high technical performance. This, in turn, has also led to a price reduction in the the Repeat48 and Repeat48WDM.

Repeat8-Nano comes in two stand-alone versions: the Repeat8-Nano 4IN features four SDI inputs and four fiber SFP outputs (electrical-to-optical conversion), and Repeat8-Nano 4OUT features four SDI outputs and four fibre-optic SFP inputs (optical to electrical conversion).

Both devices can be connected with a quad or duplex fibre, creating robust and cost-efficient four-channel point-to-point transport. Each box can also be connected to the Repeat48 or the Route66 for distant router I/O.

‘Following the success of the Repeat48 series we realised there was a high demand for a smaller box, that was not necessarily rackmounted,’ says BroaMan MD, Tine Helmle. ‘There are plenty of small converters in the market, but few four-channel modules, which are perfect for simple 4K transmission. We reduced the channel count and size from the original Repeat48, but have maintained the same quality. The price/performance ratio is amazing. At the same time, we could move the larger Repeat48 and Repeat48WDM to a much lower price point.’

Extending four-channel 3G-SDI signal up to 80km over fibre-optic cables, this quad channel converter also boasts low power consumption and a number of other features. It offers Data rate per channel up to 3G, totalling up to 12G for 4K. It includes Reclocker for superior jitter performance. Compliances include SMPTE-424M, SMPTE-310M, SMPTE305M, SMPTE297M, SMPTE-295M, SMPTE292M, DVB-ASI and Madi.

In addition it offers: transparent to embedded audio (up to 192 channels); full compatibility with BroaMan Repeat48, MUX22 and Route66 devices to enable larger facilities to build advanced and complete systems (up to 120km); andintegration with many leading pro audio and broadcast brands. It is also the most modular and flexible system on the market, with no additional software required.
