12G-AM-T

The 12G-AM-T is an 8-channel AES audio embedder/disembedder Mini-Converter with support for 12G-SDI input and output up to 4K/UltraHD. Ships with a LC Fiber single link SFP Transmitter for extending 4K/UltraHD signals over long distances.

AES audio disembedding is always functional, providing four AES outputs. AES audio Embedding is user selectable on a channel pair basis, to either pass 12G-SDI input audio or embed input AES audio.

The 12G-AM-T automatically detects and configures the input video standard.
