FOX 3G HD-SDI Setup Guide
This guide provides instructions for an experienced installer to set up and operate
Extron® FOX 3G HD-SDI Transceiver.
The transceiver can be configured via its rear panel Mode DIP switches to operate in one
of three ways:
•
•
•
Bidirectional transceiver
Transmitter
Receiver
See Transceiver Configurations on the rear of this guide if you need more information.
NOTE: In this guide, the term “transceiver” refers to any FOX 3G HD-SDI; the term “bidirectional transceiver” refers to a
FOX 3G HD-SDI specifically configured as a bidirectional transceiver.
Installation
Step 1 — Mounting
Turn off or disconnect all equipment power sources and mount the transceiver as required.
Step 2 — Connections and Initial Settings
a HD-SDI Input connector — If the FOX 3G HD-SDI is configured as
either a bidirectional transceiver or as a transmitter, connect an
HD-SDI, SDI, or 3G-SDI video input to this BNC connector.
b
Mode switches — Set these DIP switches to the
positions shown at right to select the transceiver
configuration. See Transceiver Configurations on the
rear of this guide for more information.

WARNING: This unit outputs continuous invisible light, which may be harmful to the eyes; use with caution. For
additional safety, plug the attached dust caps into the optical transceivers when the fiber optic cable is
unplugged.
NOTE: Ensure that you use the proper fiber cable for your transceivers. Typically, singlemode fiber cable has a
yellow jacket and multimode fiber cable has an orange or aqua jacket.
Tx connector — In any configuration, connect a fiber optic cable to the Optical Tx LC connector.
Connect the free end of this fiber optic cable to the Optical Rx connector on another FOX 3G HD-SDI transceiver that is
configured as a bidirectional transceiver or as a receiver.
Rx connector — In either the bidirectional transceiver or receiver configuration, connect a fiber optic cable to the
Optical Rx connector to receive the signal from the transmitting unit. Connect the free end as detailed below:
•
In a 2-transceiver system, connect the free end of this cable to the Optical Tx connector on the transmitting unit,
which is configured as a transmitter.
•
In a daisy-chained system, connect the free end of this cable to the Optical Tx connector on the previous unit in the
daisy chain (configured as either a bidirectional transceiver or a transmitter).
d Buffered Outputs connectors — In any FOX 3G HD-SDI configuration, connect a digital display to these BNC connectors.
In the bidirectional transceiver configuration, connectors 1 and 2 both output the video that is sent from the other
transceiver.
In the receiver configuration, only connector 2 outputs video and it is the
video sent by the transmitting unit.
In the transmitter configuration, connectors 1 and 2 both output the video
signal that is input on the HD/SDI Input connector, a, on the same transceiver.
e Power connector — Plug the included external 12 VDC power supply into this
2-pole captive screw connector as shown at right. Use the supplied tie-wrap to
strap the power cord to the extended tail of the connector.

Operation
After the transmitting and receiving units and all of their connected devices are powered up, the system is fully operational.
If any problems are encountered, ensure all traditional and fiber cables are routed and connected properly. If your problems
persist, call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support Hotline that is closest to you, at the number shown below.
Fiber Compatibility Indications
Use the proper fiber cable for your transceivers. Each transceiver indicates its fiber compatibility,
singlemode or multimode, at power-up by blinking the four front panel Rate indicators, once for
multimode or twice for singlemode.

NOTE: All transceivers in the system must be the same model (either all singlemode or all multimode). Mixed transmission mode
units will not work together.
Transceiver Configurations
Bidirectional Transceiver
A bidirectional transceiver inputs digital video on its SDI/HD-SDI Input BNC. The transceiver converts the video input to a
proprietary signal and transmits it over a fiber link to another FOX 3G HD-SDI that is configured as either a bidirectional
transceiver or as a receiver.

Transmitter and Receiver
A unit configured as a transmitter inputs digital video on its HD/SDI Input BNC. The transmitter converts the video input
to a proprietary signal and transmits the video over a fiber link to a FOX 3G HD-SDI that is configured as a receiver or as a
bidirectional transceiver. The transmitter also simultaneously outputs the digital video on its two Buffered Outputs BNCs.
A unit configured as a receiver
accepts a proprietary signal on
its Rx fiber optic port.
The receiver converts the
proprietary signal back to
original HD-SDI, SDI, or
3G-SDI video and outputs
the video on only one of its
own Buffered Output BNC
connectors, Output 2.
