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:

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 F-2ASI is a copper to fiber media adapter for both DVB-ASI and SD-SDI signals. The unit has four channels that work independently of each other. Each channel can carry either a DVB-ASI signal or an SD-SDI signal. The four channels are then multiplexed onto a single fiber for transport. The signals are then separated at the receiver. The F-2ASI provides four Full independent DVB-ASI/SDI pipes. There are four BNC connectors for the copper inputs and outputs. The optical connections can be configured for SC, SC(APC), ST, or FC connectors. The F-2ASI features easy to read diagnostic LED's for system and link status.
The H-YPbPr-QAM is a QAM agile modulator used for the insertion of a standard HD Composite or VGA signal onto a QAM channel for distribution through a Coax network.The modulator can be programed for any digital cable channel (2-135) and can be easily viewed by any digital cable ready HDTV or tuner. The H-YPbPr-QAM unit offers adjustable amplification of up to 29 dBmV for distribution over an on site broadband cable system. Featuring MPEG-2 true HD encoding at resolutions up to 1080i, the H-YPbPr-QAM modulator is perfect for digital signal distribution at sports and entertainment facilities, retail and corporate offices, colleges, schools, and worship centers. The H-YPbPr-QAM modulator is ideal for any HDTV broadband signal distribution system.
The L-Band Transmitter/Receiver pair is used for transporting L-Band over fiber from the antenna to the satellite receiver. L-band RF signals have a very limited range over coaxial cable, typically no more than a few hundred feet. By transporting the L-Band over fiber this range can be extended to over 75 miles. Fiber optic cables are much smaller and easier to work with than traditional copper coax. Additionally our units provide optional 13/18V LNB power as well as Automatic Gain Control (AGC) to manage RF input level. Fiber optic transport of satellite signals is useful in many applications, such as transportation of signals from a remote satellite farm to a broadcaster's headend, uplink and downlink applications, and DBS services.
The F-RF-TX transmitter is used to transmit RF cable TV signals (45-870MHz) over a fiber optic cable. By converting the RF band to an optical signal the transmission distance can be increased to over 120 km. The transmitter uses external modulation technology with a direct current laser. This results in no laser chirp, low dispersion distortion, a large extinction ratio, and high speed signal transfer. The F-RF-TX features an easy to read front panel LCD screen that displays relative operating status and fault information. The unit implements a high linearity DFB laser, and features built in pre-distortion adjustment circuity. The F-RF-TX direct modulated optical transmitter can be used in FTTx (10Km) of second-grade service area (Sub-HE) and can also be used in WDM narrow-band multiplexing and IP/QAM. Our RF transmitter units feature dual power supplies for added fault protection. All operating parameters of the F-RF-TX series transmitters are designed for high reliability and suitable for even the most high end applications.
The F-SBAND is used to transmit and receive uplink and downlink signals up to 5 GHz. This is useful for links in between control rooms or NOCs. The F-SBAND system offers a high performance alternative to conventional coaxial link systems, both reducing attenuation and eliminating the need for a waveguide. The unit functions as a transperent link, transporting all satellite modulation formats over a single fiber. Typically an S-Band fiber link consists of an optical transmitter that recieves the RF signal and transmits it over singlmode fiber to an optical reciever which converts the optical signal back to RF. The F-SBAND link is a cost effective and high performance solution for S-Band Satellite links.
The Iridium satellite network is an incredibly useful tool for global communications. We offer solutions for using your Iridium based satellite phone indoors or in non line of site locations such as ships, vehicles, or hangars. Typical implementations include an outdoor antenna for transmitting and receiving the signal from the satellite, an L-Band amplifier to distribute the signal, and an indoor antenna array for redistribution of the Iridium satellite signal indoors or wherever coverage is needed. If necessary we can implement optical links to distribute the RF satellite signal over fiber optic cable from either the outdoor or indoor antennas. This can increase the link distance as far as necessary, up to 50 miles if needed. No mater what your requirements we can design and implement a system that will fit both your needs and budget.
