Emcore- Fiber Optic Links: Broadband RF, L-band, Base Band A/V & DVB-ASI
The Emcore/Force Model 2990PRO L-Band Satellite Fiber Optic Transport System provides an economical solution for transporting digital signals for numerous satellite distribution applications, including headend relocation, and distribution of digital broadcast systems (DBS). The Emcore 2990PRO utilizes a cost-effective coax cabling configuration to distribute the RF signals from the dish to the transmitter and from the receiver to the headend.
The Emcore Medallion 7200 series product line is a family of state-of-the-art high performance CATV Erbium/Ytterbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EYDFA). Packaged in a convenient 2 RU housing, this line of fiber amplifiers has been optimized for superior output power stability and the exceptionally low noise figures demanded by CATV applications.
The Emcore Medallion 7100 series product line is a family of state-of-the-art high performance CATV Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA). Packaged in convenient 1 RU housing, this line of fiber amplifiers has been design optimized for superior output power stability and the exceptionally low noise figures demanded by CATV applications.
The VX-1DVI-SD optical extender is a single fiber DVI extender that can send 1 channel of DVI video, 1 channel of serial data and 2 channels of analog audio (with adapter) up to 6.2 miles (10 km). The extender is a low profile unit that transports over standard multimode or singlemode fiber using LC type optical connectors for a secure cable connection. LC connectors are the smallest and most widely used type. This allows the easiest installation possible through conduit or wall/ceiling mounted boom arms.
Graphic resolutions up to 1920×1200 and video resolutions up to 1080p 60Hz are possible over a single fiber. Both video and data can be extended out to 6 miles without the need for distribution amplifiers, cable equalization or in-line repeaters that are normally associated with copper cable extension. The VX- 1DVI-SD is the most economical solution for sending a single channel of digital video with data and audio over long distances.
No more EDID learning or blanked out screens! Critical EDID information is read directly from the monitor and passed to the graphics card via the duplex data channel. The VX-1DVI-SD can work on any digital display and provide resolutions up to 1920×1200. The VX-1DVI-SD is also HDCP compliant allowing the exchange of keys between the source and display. Copyrighted material can be sent over the fiber link.
The Emcore OPG-1L series RF fiber optic links are designed for the openGear® platform standard and are optimized to perform in the 50 MHz to 2.3 GHz frequency range for IF- and L-Band video signals up to 30 km. They provide transparent signal transport between broadcast or cable network antenna facilities and control room terminal equipment.
The Emcore Medallion 6000 series is a family of state-of-the-art high-performance 1550 nm externally-modulated CATV fiber optic transmitters optimized for varying network applications. Packaged in convenient 1 RU housing, this line of optical transmitters couples high optical output powers, up to 11.0 dBm, with low optical linewidth resulting in unmatched performance. The optical modulator, combined with proprietary pre-distortion circuitry, provides superior CTB and CSO performance with SBS suppression levels of greater than 21 dBm. Advanced features such as built-in field adjustable SBS control and electronic dispersion compensation allow these transmitters to be quickly optimized in the field for any link or application without the need to procure specifically tuned transmitters. This affords the system designer a level of flexibility previously unknown in the CATV market place.
The Emcore Medallion 2100 Optical A/B Switch is a high-performance solution for network protection and optical redundancy. Packaged in convenient 1 RU housing, this line of optical switches provides an automatic or manual fiber switching function to protect the network from inadvertent service outages due to up-stream optical signal degradation. Each fiber’s optical signal power level is continuously monitored, as is an adjustable optical trip threshold for each channel. If the primary fiber’s optical signal power level falls below the desired optical trip threshold, the unit automatically switches to the secondary fiber, thus eliminating the need for intervention of a system operator. The Medallion 2100 is capable of manual switching or can be switched remotely via SNMP or via a WEB browser adding optical protection to many system applications.
