Fiber Optic Digital Video/Audio Transport System
1.0 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The 1700 system provides simultaneous transmission of digital audio,
digital video and/or data over one or one pair of fibers. The 1700
unidirectional system transmits two (2) AES audios and one (1) SDI
video channel in one direction. The 1700 bi-directional system transmits
and receives two (2) AES audios and one (1) SDI video channel in both
directions. The video quality in the 1700 system meets SMPTE-259M
specifications and its audio specifications exceed AES3 standards. In
addition, the 2 AES audio channels can be optionally replaced by 2
stereo analog audio channels. Many versions of optical transmitter and
receiver combinations are available to address different distance
requirements.
The 1700 features a digital time-multiplexing fiber optic transmission
technology, capable of providing sharp video and crisp audio, with little
or no maintenance, high functionality reliability, and low operating cost.
In addition, the audio and video streams are totally independent. Thus
the break of one stream (video or audio) will not cause the break of the
other stream (audio or video). The quality of video, audio and data
transmission in BCI's digital designs is much superior to the embedded
video/audio transmission designs used by other manufacturers. No
user adjustments are required in the 1700 system, enabling quick setup
and trouble-free operation.
The 1700 comes with two packaging options: a rugged, standalone, and
compact unit, or a plug-in card for a card cage system. Panel connectors
are provided for video (BNC), audio (terminal block), and fiber connection
(FC-type for singlemode fiber or ST-type for multimode fiber). They are
also easily monitored by separate LED indicators for power, optical link,
and channel activity.

2.0 SETUP
The BCI 1700 Series units are used in pairs. In a unidirectional
application, a 1700 transmitter (1700-T) is located at the near-end and
connected through one fiber to a 1700 receiver (1700-R) located at the
far-end. In a bi-directional application, one 1700 transceiver unit is located
at the near end and connected through two optical fibers to identical
1700 transceiver located at the far end of the link. Each unit provides a
separate electrical interface connector for the Serial Digital Video data
signals. Connections are one to one between both units. Figure 2-1
depicts a typical installation.

2.1 Mounting
Before installing the units into your housing, make sure there is
enough space to pull and connect both the electrical and optical
cables without stressing them beyond the manufacturer’s
limitations (also known as the bend radius minimum). Rack
Mount kits are available through special order.
2.2 Cabling and Connectors
In order to set up the BCI 1700 properly, make sure to observe
the following instructions when installing the proper cables. The
1700 requires two parts to the cabling setup: the electrical and
the optical. For the optical part, observe the following
procedures, as there are various types of optical connectors as
illustrated on the following page.
2.2.1 Electrical Cable Connection
The only available cable connections on the electrical side are
for video sources.
Proceed with the following instructions when connecting the
various electrical devices.
2.2.2 Digital Video Connection
The 1700 unit provides 75 Ohm BNC connectors for digital video
input and output ports. Use the following procedure for
connections.
1. On the near end, connect the user’s digital video sources to
the 1700-T (transmitter) unit’s digital video input ports, using
a coaxial cable (i.e., Belden 8281 or better).

2. On the far end, connect the 1700-R (receiver) unit’s digital
video output ports to the user’s digital video receivers, using
coaxial cables. (See Figure 2-2).

2.2.3 Digital Audio Connection
Perform the following steps to insure a proper audio connection:
1. At the near end (the transmitter unit), connect the user’s
audio sources to the 1700 unit’s audio input ports. (See
Figure 2-3).
2. At the far end (the receiver unit), connect the user’s audio
receivers to the corresponding audio output ports on the
1700 receiver unit.
3. Terminal block connectors are provided for the audio feeds
(see Figure 2-3). Figure 2-4 illustrates the terminal block
pin assigment for the 1700.

2.2.4 Optical Fiber Connection
Most cable manufacturers identify individual fibers in the fiber
cable. Select an appropriate terminated fiber. Each unit’s optical
ports in the system are specified for use with multimode
(62.5/125 micron) fiber, or singlemode (9/125 micron) fiber.
Follow these instructions for installing and connecting the fiber
optic links:
1. Ensure the power is off before proceeding with the fiber
optic cable installation.
2. Prior to connecting the fiber optic cables, remove and save
the dust caps from the optical port of both the 1700 units
and the user’s device. Clean the fiber optic connector and
use a lint-free cloth dampened with alcohol to thoroughly
wipe the side and end of the ferrule. Table 1 shows the
connection mechanisms for both ST and FC connectors.
3. Cross-connect the fibers from one unit to the other

Observe the type of connector you have and connect the
optical connector by following the instructions and
guidelines provided in Table 1.
4. Make the following connections between the 1700 units.
Connect the near-end 1700-T (transmitter) unit’s optical TX
port to the far-end 1700-R (receiver) unit’s optical RX port
with an optical fiber.

2.4 Power Connection
Congratulations! You are now ready to power up the BCI 1700
and set up your network connection. In order to make sure that
you have a proper installation, please observe the following:
1.
Your AC jack has power.
2.
The 12VDC power supply is working.
3.
Your electrical system has proper grounding (this ensures
that your power supply does not suffer from voltage
variations).
4.
Power Surge Protection. This is optional, but highly
recommended. A UPS system provides voltage regularity
as well as prevents spikes from occurring, thus protecting
your 1700 from sensitive voltage conditions.
The 1700 derives power from an external 12VDC power supply.
This power supply is a wall mounted AC/DC adapter, 100-240
VAC, 50-60 Hz, at 1A. This power supply comes standard for
the 1700 unless otherwise specified.
To provide power to the 1700, simply connect the power cord,
already provided with the units, and connect it to the wall jack.
(You will find one power cord per unit). Once the power cord has
been connected to the wall jack, connect 12VDC to the unit and
the unit should power up immediately.
If you have any problems or concerns, regarding the installation,
make sure that you have taken the proper steps to ensure a
proper power connection. Otherwise, feel free to contact us for
any questions you may have.

4.0 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
4.1 Maintenance
There is no operator maintenance other then keeping the units
clean. However, observe the light indicators, shown in Table 2,
to make sure that the unit is working properly.
4.2 Troubleshooting
If the BCI 1700 units do not operate properly after installation,
check for possible cable breaks, loose connections, and
incorrect cable connections. If a problem exists on the fiber
link, please check your fiber connectors for improperly cleaned
fiber cables and connectors. If problems persist that may be
fiber related, contact BCI at 1-800-214-0222 for further
assistance.
For electrical problems, perform the following troubleshooting
procedures:
1. If the POWER indicator is OFF, check for the following:
a. The line cord is plugged into the unit and your outlet
has power.
b. The 1700 unit is switched on.
c. Check for blown fuses (located in the rear panel-entry
module).
2. If the POWER indicator is ON, but the Optical Link
indicator is OFF, check for the following:
a. Make sure the appropriate (singlemode or multimode)
fibers are being used.
b. Fiber and fiber connectors are not broken. Ensure that
the optical loss does not exceed the specified optical
power attenuation .
Broadata Technical Support, CustomerService@Broadatacom.com

BCI 1700 User’s Manual
Fiber Optic Digital Video/Audio Transport System
c. For each unit, the transmit (TX) fiber is connected to
the other unit’s receiver (RX).
3. If the POWER indicator and Optical Link indicator are
ON, but the video channels are not operating, then:
a. Check to see that the attached user equipment is turned
on.
b. Both ends of the link are connected to the corresponding
equipment and to the same corresponding channel port.
c. Cable connections at both the video channels are
securely fastened to each connector. Turn the power
off, then back on to reset the link.
d. Output levels of the user’s video sources are not above
the allowed input levels of the 1700 units.
