HUBbox NV120-T1310-R14

The HUBbox NV120-T1310-R14 Optical Fiber Converter provides one channel of 12G-SDI to Optical and one channel of Optical to 12G-SDI conversion. Designed for use with 12G-/6G-/3G-/HD-/SD-SDI. Supports data rates from 270Mbps to 11.88Gbps.


The HUBbox™ 12G is equipped with AutoSFP® functionality, similar to the XFD line. This makes the HUBbox™ 12G extremely flexible. Simply by replacing the SFP, it can easily be changed into a receiver or transmitter. We’ve also added dual BNCs per channel to the design, giving dual outputs or loopthrough.


The unit is housed in a compact and rugged aluminium case ideally suited to both studio and portable applications.


The HUBbox NV120-T1310-R14 is perfect for using with any XFD system where one or two signals are required remotely.
