Yes it can, although a parallel interface via copper, a serial configurat=
ion is also available through fibre.

   * Speeds: 800 Mbit/s and 1.6 Gbit/s
   * Cabling: 50-pair STP, singlemode and multimode fiber
   * Distance: 50 meters point to point over copper. Cascaded switches ca=
     be extended 200 meters over copper; 300 meters over multimode fiber;=
     kilometers over single-mode fiber
   * Connection time: Less than 1 microsecond for dedicated connection
   * Latency: 160 nanoseconds on average

I think it would not be practical to tie up an Onyx for a telecine transf=
