The MAX-FH-12G offers HDMI or adaptive Multimode/Singlemode Fiber to 12G-SDI signal conversion and extension for Media Axis™ systems. The HDMI or Fiber input can be used interchangeably, depending on the distance requirements of the application. The MAX-FH-12G connects directly to the HDMI output board (MAX-HO) or to the Fiber output board (MAX-FO) of Media Axis™ switchers and has two mirrored 12G-SDI outputs.

Media Axis' unique design features and technologies come together to deliver the most adaptable, forward-thinking solution:
