Lynx Ultra Commercial HDTV Distribution Network on Cat 6 Cable

The Lynx Ultra commercial HDTV distribution network on Cat 6 cable delivers HD, SD and analog RF video (TV). State-of-the-art high frequency baluns are used in the hubs and end converters to deliver RF frequencies up to 860 MHz without using any bandwidth on the network.

The Lynx Ultra commercial HDTV distribution network on Cat 6 cable features a passive design for most standard applications with the hub assembly located in the wiring closets (MDF/IDF) and Lynx Ultra converters are installed at the point of use to deliver HDTV over a cat 5e/6 cable infrastructure.

How does a Lynx Ultra System work?

How do we do it?

  1. RF Signal Feeds into the Lynx Ultra System

    RF television signal feeds into the Lynx Ultra system via the coax input on the back of the hub from your cable provider CATV headend, satellite headend or terrestrial TV

    Each 8-port hub has its own F-connector for precise balancing of the incoming signal strength.

  2. High-Frequency RF Baluns to Convert the Signal 

    A Lynx Ultra hub uses high-frequency RF baluns to convert the 75 ohm unbalanced coax signal to a 100 ohm balanced signal to be transmitted on pair 4 of the unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. A patch cable from the front of the hub connects to the patch panel and out to the point of use. Then the converter converts the signal back into coaxial form for input into the TV, simultaneously delivering your entire channel lineup.

  3. Passive vs. Amplified Lynx Ultra Converters

    Lynx Ultra converters are available in passive and amplified models. The passive converter are ideal for most applications. The amplified converter is designed for applications requiring maximum run lengths and frequencies.
