TV broadcast companies and audio applications for events must provide high-quality audio and video throughputs. Sometimes this requires increasing the range of the sensors (audio and video) over a few kilometers. Since using coax cable is in such a case impractical, RF over Fiber has become the preferred solution. RFOptic offers solutions to enhance the broadcaster’s coverage.
The up to 6 GHz with built-in LNA have the lowest noise figure of about 5dB, which allows the MDS to increase from 10dB to 20 dB. The gain at the Tx and Rx utilizes 30 dB Attenuator with 0.5dB resolution to adjust. This is highly practical when the same gain of different links must use a different single mode fiber link. Also, the LNA feature can be used for surveillance cameras without line of sight to the control room. This is important for strategic sites such as mines, oil facilities, security fences etc.
