Designed for rack-centric, densely-populated fiber-optic-based pro AV systems, the Voyager CF-18 chassis fits up to 18 Voyager Compact Format transmitters or receivers (coming soon) in only 4U.

The CF-18 boasts dual (redundant) internal power supplies, eliminating the need for separate external ones, built-in rack-mounting ears to accommodate any standard 19” rack, easy access to all CF transmitter or receiver connections (both front and back) and a replaceable/cleanable air filter.

CF-HDMI-TX2 units support the transmission of 1920x1200 uncompressed video (either HDMI w HDCP or DVI), plus audio and serial to distances of 6,600 feet over multimode fiber. While it ships with one MMF SFP standard, the transmitter features a second port that, when populated with a second SFP, introduces a variety of signal distribution options. For example, users could cascade signals to a second transmitter, or feed a second grouping of Voyager receivers (which can be daisy-chained).

Singlemode fiber optic modules supporting longer distances (4KM and 30KM) are available from Magenta.
