Thor is a leader in worldwide customer satisfaction on the merit of producing the highest echelon fiber products, which graciously include a minimum 5-year full warranty on anything shipped from our facility. Manufacturing custom equipment, solutions, engineering and design ensures we provide our clients top quality fiber optic long and short distance transport solutions, fiber optic modems, converters, and media converters for the following signals:
Our fiber optic equipment is engineered to use different colors of light to carry multiple signals on the same fiber. With fiber optics we can process a tumultuous amount of signals on a single fiber providing the end user a simple and convenient solution to transport their audio/video signal. Up to 60 different colored lasers are available with each laser carrying up to a 10 Gigabit signal. This technique is known as wavelength division multiplexing. When used with a larger number of light colors it is known as either Course or Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM, CWDM, or DWDM). Using WDM, CWDM and DWDM multiplexing techniques we provide our fiber optic solutions to:

Fiber optic technology has been constantly changing and Thor Fiber’s goal is to continue to provide the fiber optic solutions and services needed for a better tomorrow.
Consumer based applications that necessitate the use of players, external components, and digital signage are becoming increasingly popular as businesses begin to allocate customizable data into a QAM channel. Hence the new prerogative of HDMI to RF is now inherently a popular go to for internal marketing and signage. The demand of adding menu’s and streaming content from a PC or Blu-Ray is easily handled by devices such as an Encoder Modulator that will allow you to transmit such information on an internal RF network that is being fed by an encoder. Such a popular demand is being met by Thor Fiber with their line of QAM-IP chassis that can easily manipulate the channel mapping of your devices being fed from the HDMI encoder modulator that has an RF output. New engineering concepts have allowed companies like Thor Fiber to map consecutive channels on one RF frequency. In the case that you only have one open QAM frequency available on your TV Channel lineup, you can still put more than one carrier on that frequency. For example these units will allow you to put menu’s on channel 2.1 and the happy hour special on 2.2, this mapping helps alleviate confusion among employees who need to physically walk up to the TV sets and manually change the channel you are trying to locate. Pragmatic applications are generally part of the day to day routine for managers and owners who are reluctant to play with advanced technology. Inherently these modulator’s make switching content a breeze, all you need to do is change the content on your PC software that is streaming the Happy Hour menu. Theoretically most restaurants change their menu’s daily, so why not change the menu on a fixed component like TV instead of using a massive chalk board or white board advertising. Using common software on any PC, once your happy hour specials are completed, the encoder will automatically see the new information streaming off your PC and immediately broadcast that information over your entire RF infrastructure already in place throughout your building. Being progressive in today’s environment is no longer a challenge with unique equipment that aids everyone in projecting a more professional image of themselves on TV’s instead of smaller cut out menu’s that need to be distributed to hospitality employees daily, eliminating the need to print expensive menu additions daily. Save your employees time and your company money by utilizing a thriving technology that lets any owner become a professional media advertiser over their digital signs. You as the owner are now empowered by catchy media advertisement that no longer needs to be a stagnant logo. Using software from Apple or Windows, you can create media slideshows, mini-commercials, short video presentations, and offer your clients a unique view of how you want to portray your business. Flashy short videos of bartenders creating exotic drinks for 30 seconds followed by a 2 minute view of the specials of the day creates a picturesque portrayal of not only your amazing special but also the creation of a cocktail so the consumer already knows what their getting before they get it. Creating content that sells itself takes less pressure off your sales/wait staff that is already slammed with tables because you’re now the cool bar on the block.
We aim high at being focused on building relationships with our clients and community. Working together on the daily requires each individual to let the greater good of the team’s work surface above their own ego.Find out More

The H-ASI-AMP is a signal distribution amplifier for ASI or SDI signals. We build ASI distribution amplifier units with 2 to 16 outputs. The units accepts ASI and SDI signals at any bitrate. A key feature of our H-ASI-AMP is that the outputs are reclocked, this resolves any issues with signal jitter and provides a clean output. This not only improves the quality of the incoming signal, it allows for much longer cable runs from the outputs. The H-ASI-AMP is a perfect solution for distribution of transport stream signals from devices such as encoders or servers. With a distribution amp such as this the output signal from an ASI multiplexer can be amplified for distribution to many different devices.
