Stratos offers single fiber video transport

At NAB2007 (booth C1930), Stratos Optical Technologies, a provider of optical conversion and connectivity products, will demonstrate a new family of digital video optical multiplexing/transport racks that allow broadcasters to preconfigure 16 unidirectional or eight bidirectional channels in a single 1RU package. It's part of the company's latest evolution to its digital Video Media Converter Rack (VMCR) product line.

On the front end, connectivity is a traditional 75ohm coaxial BNC port. Behind that is an array of media converters that feed an optical signal into a CWDM that outputs all the signals from the studio-facing side to a single transmit and receive optical pair.

The VMCR-CWDM package enables users to simply plug a BNC-terminated coax video signal line into one rack and mate to the appropriate coax port in another, using fiber as the transport media. This solution allows multiple signals over a single fiber pair, enables distance for the application and offers tremendous weight savings benefit versus coax cable.

For end users, Stratos said the ability to purchase a preconfigured transport system eliminates the work, risk and lead-time involved with sourcing, integrating and installing individual active and passive components, including media converter transmitters and receivers, CWDM passive modules and separate frames.
