The Ross Video FDT-6604-R2 is a serial digital SDI to fiber optic transmitter converter that supports serial digital data rates from 143Mb/s up to 2.97Gb/s (1080p). SDI outputs are reclocked copies of the input providing excellent jitter and return loss specifications.

The FDT-6604-R2 includes the -R2 full rear I/O module, and is fully hot-swappable with all active components on the front removable card. No active components are installed on the rear I/O connection module. This design greatly reduces down-time eliminating any need to access the back of the rack frame. The -R2 rear module occupies 2 slots in the OG3-FR platform and supports 1 openGear® card. It features access to the full I/O connections of the main Converter/Transmitter card.
