Telecast Fiber to unveil TeleThon
At NAB2007, Telecast Fiber Systems will debut the TeleThon optical and electrical multiplexer system, a hybrid device featuring the CWDM wavelength management functionality of the company's Teleport system with the high density of the Python II digital video transceiver system.
The TeleThon unit accepts electrical digital signals, ranging from 19.4Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s uncompressed HD/SDI and optical signals of up to 2.5Gb/s each, and multiplexes them for transmission in either or both directions. Up to 16 optical signals can be accommodated on one fiber, significantly increasing fiber capacity.
The CWDM (coarse wavelength division multiplexing) capability of the TeleThon system simplifies and multiplies the effectiveness of fiber-optic cables, reducing operator costs and improving overall signal transmission capacity.
