7708LR : Wideband RF Fiber Receiver

The award winning Evertz 7800 family of multiframes provide flexibility in the truest form. With simultaneous processing capability of RF, Fiber, ASI, IP, 3G, HD/SD and more, these frames are designed to grow with the rapid changing needs of the facility and are available in a wide variety to defined below.

The 7708LRA/7708LR-H are VistaLINK® capable fiber optic receivers for extended L-Band and other signals. They accept a fiber optic input from a companion transmitter and provide an electrical output signal. Monitoring and control of card status is provided locally at the card edge and remotely via VistaLINK®. SmartMON™ capability allows inband monitoring data sent by a companion SmartMON™ enabled transmitter to be displayed locally or via SNMP/VistaLINK®. The 7708LRA/7708LR-H occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.
