MuxLab delivers 6G-SDI Extender to Cornell University's football stadium
Cornell University, based in Ithaca, New York, was recently looking to upgrade its older cable and camera drops for its renovated football stadium. The university selected MuxLab's 6G-SDI Extender over UTP to eliminate the four in/out cable runs to the press box, according to a press release.
The extender helped streamline the cabling by sending one 6G SDI, two 3G-SDI or four HD-SDI feeds at a time. It can deliver HD or 4K streamed video at 30 Hertz up to 330 feet. The stadium didn't need an external power source, since the device's transmitter is powered by the receiver, according to the release.
"We were able to transmit four SDI feeds in high definition over just one cable with an exceptional level of visual quality. The entire system based on the MuxLab Extender gives us more capabilities on the field. We're still running cables for every game, but our field mobility is better," John Lukach, director of multimedia, production and web communications, Cornell University Athletics, said in the release. "We can go farther without having to kick a camera into SD because of resolution issues. We can stay in full HD for longer reaches. Plus the entire set-up is much easier."
