Fibre optic technology is the most efficient means of transmitting video in the digital environment with fibre optic cable offering extremely high bandwidth capability over long distances.
American Fibertek's  91PE Series

American Fibertek, Inc. (AFI) demonstrated the performance value and versatility of its fibre transmission solutions for network-based physical security applications at ISC West. Included in the exhibit are state of the art IP and hybrid video fibre solutions (bridging solutions between analogue and IP) with features like 10-bit digital video transmission capability, bi-directional communications, multi-channel capacity for video with data, Ethernet and audio on one fibre with remote monitoring capabilities.

"Today's market is driven as much by evolving technology as it is by demand, and AFI has consistently stayed ahead of these curves," said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of AFI. "Our comprehensive suite of fibre transmission solutions, as well as our V'nes Video Network Enterprise Solutions, provide the network transmission performance, reliability and speed necessary for new IP and hybrid environments."

The latest in the line of 10 bit digital video products are one, two and four channel video systems with various sub-channels.

The 91PE Series provides one simultaneous video channel with 10/100Base-Tx Ethernet on a single fibre. A built-in Ethernet switch provides two RJ45 local network connections and an internal port to the other side of the link. The 92P338 Series of products can provide two10 bit digital video channels with up to three sub carrier channels of multi-protocol configurable data and 24 bit digital audio or relay contact alarms. The 94P599SL Series provides two and four channels of 10 bit digital video respectively. These models can be configured with two sub carrier channels which can be 24 bit digital audio, multi-protocol configurable data, dual RS232 channels, or dual relay contact closure channels.

Fibre optic technology offers the most efficient means of transmitting video in the digital environment because fibre optic cable offers extremely high bandwidth capability over long distances. Additionally, evolving technologies continue to increase the amount of data that can be transmitted by a single fibre. As the premier supplier of network solutions for security and video surveillance applications, AFI's position as a leading solutions provider is built on their dedication of resources to meet the industry's changing needs.
