  • IRVINE, Calif. – L-com, a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it has just launched a new line of SDI video over fiber extender modules to address broadcast, security, surveillance and digital signage applications.

    L-com’s FOCV-series SDI video over fiber extenders convert SDI (uncompressed video format) to an optical signal, and vice-versa. In many cases, extension over fiber can eliminate the need for a camera truck or more expensive electrical repeaters.  Other benefits realized by using these fiber video extenders include weight savings vs. copper cable, immunity to EMI/RFI and more secure connections as fiber is harder to tap than copper cabling.

    Off-the-shelf options include 3G-SDI transmitter and receiver modules in a small-form factor “inline” packaging, as well as a benchtop/rack-mountable module and dual rate 12G/6G-SDI versions for 4k broadcasting, uncompressed over fiber.

    “Our new line of SDI over fiber video extenders allow our customers to save money by retaining their existing copper connected video equipment when longer video runs are required. These easy to install SDI over fiber video extenders eliminate the need to use expensive copper based video repeaters and provide security and immunity to signal distorting EMI/RFI,” said Paul Hospodar, Product Line Manager.
