Fiber Optic Solutions for Broadcast Technology


For years, television broadcasters have relied on coax and shielded twisted pair cables to route video and audio control signals and RF around their facilities. Coax for video and RF, and twisted pairs for analog and digital audio, have proven themselves to be easy to work with and reliable.

However, as the television broadcast business evolves from a single analog channel to a digital world, the industry is re-evaluating the role of coax. In its place, fiber optic cable is emerging as a logical solution for next-generation television signal routing, where greater bandwidth is needed to accommodate HD signals and multicast SD channels.
