Many broadcast installations have multiple signal types originating from a camera position to the broadcast center. In addition, the broadcast center may transmit intercom and data signals to the camera position. This is often accomplished using Course Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology where many optical signals are transmitted on a single fiber. Trinity's format independence and low reflectivity allows the switch to work seamlessly with CWDM technology, allowing multiple CWDM and bidirectional signals connecting the two sites to be switched using a single fiber input and output port. This is a significant advantage over OEO routers.
