ADCMP580 CML Output interfacing to +2.5V

Is it possible to connect the ADCMP580 directly to a +2.5V CML 1:2 fan-out driver or I need to add a level shifter in between? I need DC Coupling. One way this could be achieved is by connecting Pin 9 to the +V however I am not sure if internally Pin 9 and Pin 12 are connected to the GND?

I noticed this IC uses -V CMl which is very inconvenient to use with most of the available CML logic chips. Is there a solution which uses +V CML 2.5/3.3V?

Many Thanks,
