Mar. 13, 2001--Pure Digital Fiberlink Video/PTZ system uses all-digital technology to process and transmit one-way video and bi-directional data (for PTZ control) over a single fiber.

Pure Digital Fiberlink Video/PTZ system uses all-digital technology to process and transmit one-way video and bi-directional data (for PTZ control) over a single fiber. High-quality, noise-free performance makes it ideal for critical, high-performance installations in the Security and ITS markets. Features include: video channel compatible with NTSC, PAL, SECAM; full duplex bi-directional data channel supports RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 standards; configurable using the same or different protocols on transmitting/receiving ends

Available in both single mode and multimode, the system has an operating wavelength of 850, 1310 or 1550 nm and supports a bandwidth of 8 MHz for video and 100 Kb/sec for data. The bi-directional data channel is fully compatible with EIA standard RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 as configured by the user independently on each end. Systems consist of two units (transmitter and receiver), each equipped with indicator LEDs to continuously indicate the presence of power and the optical signal. The power supply allows operation from low voltage AC and DC sources.

Pure Digital Fiberlink 10-Channel Video Multiplexer/PTZ transmits up to 10 channels of baseband analog video and optional 2-way (PTZ) data (RS-232, RS-422, RS-485) over one or two fibers. With all-digital processing and signaling, the system transmits the highest quality signal, with no crosstalk or interference. Outperforms traditional FM video multiplexers and offers the lowest cost per channel of any video multiplexer on the market.

Designed to work with standard single mode or multimode fiber optic cable, the system supports systems with up to a 17dB loss budget and transmits full bandwidth, full motion and uncompressed video. Both transmitter and receiver are equipped with internal power supplies and built-in diagnostic LEDs for each channel to continuously monitor a loss of signal/broken fiber alarm. Only one rack unit high, the Pure Digital Fiberlink 10-Channel Video Multiplexer/PTZ can be used as a free standing unit or rackmounted.
