All New Fiber Optic Pair offers Digitally–Encoded Video Performance at Analog Video Cost

ComNet Europe of Leeds in the United Kingdom, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic and copper media transmission and networking equipment has released a new fiber optic video transmitter and receiver that is the company’s solution to the low-cost, low-quality imported fiber optic transmission equipment available today. The ComNet FVT1C1B1 and FVR4C4B4 offer 8-bit digital performance and can transmit a single video and contact closure signal on individual multi-mode or single-mode optical fiber. These products are environmentally hardened to operate in the harshest conditions, and unlike imported competitive products are warranted for life.

“Our customers for traditional fiber optic products were facing enormous cost-pressure from low-cost fiber optic equipment importers,” said Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe Managing Director. “Our customers were telling us they wanted the quality they had become accustomed to with an American-made product and the support they received from an US-based company. But the low cost product available from our competitors who had turned to PAC Rim suppliers required consideration,“ Clarke continued.

“We challenged our Connecticut-based engineering staff to provide a solution, and the result are these new models. ComNet can now offer a highly cost-effective digitally encoded video product to the market, and our customers can get the performance, quality and support they demand,” concluded Clarke.

“Being able to provide solutions to market challenges quickly are one of the many benefits a company that designs and manufactures here in the US brings to the market. ComNet recognized the need for a cost-effective, high-quality fiber optic video transmission solution and we were able to introduce it in a very short time,” commented Frank Haight, ComNet Vice President of Marketing. “There is a discernable quality difference in our products versus the Asian imports and given the choice, specifiers prefer the reliability ComNet products provide. With the new FVT1C1B1 and FVR4C4B4 products our customers can get the price and performance they’ve become accustomed to,” Haight concluded.
