Digitally Encoded Video Transmitter and Receiver

Digitally Encoded Video Transmitter and Receiver
VT/VR14100 Series
IFS 10-Bit Digitally Encoded Video
Transmitter and Receiver
Standard Features
The IFS VT/VR14100 series video transmitter and video
receiver units utilize state-of-the-art 10-bit digital
encoding and decoding for true broadcast-quality video
transmission that exceeds the requirements of EIA RS-250C
for Short-Haul Video Transmission. These environmentally
hardened units provide transmission of video over one
single mode or multimode fiber optic cable and are ideal
for use in unconditioned road side or out-of-plant installations. As the level of video performance is so high, the
VT/VR14100-series is ideally suited to networks employing
multiple physical layers where video degradation may be
a problem, such as FDM or digitally encoded video multiplexing links, T-1 or fractional T-1 codecs, and SONET or
ATM backbones. These units are completely transparent to
and universally compatible with any NTSC, PAL, or SECAM
CCTV camera system. Plug-and-play design ensures ease
of installation and no electrical or optical adjustments
are ever required. LED indicators are provided for rapidly
ascertaining equipment operating status, and this
equipment is available in either stand-alone or rack
mount configurations.
