Fiber optic video receiver

Communication Networks, doing business as ComNet™, has introduced and officially released another series of all-new fiber optic video products.

The FVR11 and FVR10 are fiber optic video receivers for use over multimode optical fiber. Either model receives a single baseband video channel as an optical signal from up to 2.5km to where it is converted back to baseband video for monitoring. The difference is the FVR10 features a manual gain adjustment and is more cost-effective than the FVR11. The FVR11 features automatic gain control that automatically adjusts changes in the camera output that might degrade the video quality. Both are brand new designs from ComNet™, utilizing state of the art components to ensure better performance and reliability.

According to George Lichtblau, ComNet™ Chairman, "single-channel fiber optic video transmitters and receivers are in use in thousands of applications. These types of video fiber optic video products are installed just about everywhere. But, many of the products available today are from 20-year-old designs. The ComNet™ FVR10 and FVR11 are a new approach. I'm confident the performance and reliability of this model surpasses anything comparable on the market today."
