American Fibertek Enhances Digital Fiber Optic Transceiver Line
New 8-Channel System Employ Multiplex Technology for Digital Networking.
Las Vegas, NV (April 6, 2005) - Building on the success of its well established and comprehensive line of fiber optic digital video transmission devices, American Fibertek, Inc. (AFI) is showcasing its new 8-channel, 10 bit digital video transceivers here at ISCW 2005. The 984 (multimode) and 984SL Series Digital Transceivers (singlemode) offer uncompromised performance with advanced data multiplexing capabilities.
AFI's digital fiber optic transceivers feature 10 bit digital processing to assure the highest levels of signal integrity with significantly higher grey scale resolution and noticeably improved signal to noise ratio. The functionality of the product is further augmented by its RS422/485 data compatibility feature for camera and system control.
"The high performance afforded by our digital fiber optic transceivers allows system designers to take full advantage of today's high performance cameras and recorders over long distances with virtually no signal degradation," said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of American Fibertek, Inc. "As a result, AFI's digital transceivers help enhance the overall performance of security and surveillance systems as a result of their high signal quality and communications capabilities."
Standard features include built-in RS485 protocol, allowing multiple transmitter devices to reside on the same wire pair. The RS485 data can be configured on two (half-duplex) or four (full duplex) wires and terminated or unterminated with or without bias. As well, seven of the compact-sized units can be installed in an American Fibertek SR20/2 sub-rack providing a high density total of 56 channels of video and 7 channels of data.
American Fibertek's 984/984SL Series Digital Transceivers are fully compatible with NTSC and PAL formats, and RS170A and RS343A standards. Video channels are transmitted uncompressed providing real-time signal performance. The units are designed to be completely transparent and do not require any adjustments or maintenance in the field. Diagnostic indicators provide a quick visual indication of system status. The units are also compatible with American Fibertek's new Afinety Remote Monitoring System (see related release).
