The SHC-8932-F can accept either 12G-SDI or Fiber. Fiber interfaces offer redundant inputs for automatic changover should the primary link fail. Signal is provided on both SDI and HDMI outputs.

The SHC-8932-F can leverage the high capacity of 12G-SDI to support up to 4 displays on a single link. Utilizing the SDI output to cascade multiple channels, the SHC-8932-F can decode each 1080p subframe independently. This allows multiple remote displays to be driven with less cable of fiber interconnect.

SHC-8932-F is compatible with openGear OG3 and OGX-series frames only and occupies 2 slots.

Fiber connectivity requires optional SFP modules. One SFP module per channel is required. Dual-channel SFP offers primary+redundant fiber connection per channel allowing failover switching; single-channel SFPs support primary fiber connection only.
