ComNet unveils fiber optic transmission solution

Danbury, CT. February 11, 2010, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, doing business as ComNet, a manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, has introduced a new fiber optic transmission product designed to aid in the transition from point-to-point systems to Ethernet network systems. The FVT/FVR10D1E Series are fiber optic video transmitters and receivers that support digitally encoded video, serial data as well as 10/100 Ethernet.

The ComNet FVT/FVR10D1E is unique in that it provides 10-bit digitally encoded RS-250C Short-Haul quality video, serial data and 10/100 Ethernet on one single optical fiber. This model offers the user a solution for current requirements where high-quality video is needed, but future expansion and upgrades will necessitate the use of Ethernet. The FVT/FVR10D1E maximizes user flexibility and provides cost savings when future system upgrades are called for.

According to Victor Milani, ComNet VP of Product Management "Pairing high-quality baseband video and Ethernet in one model might seem like a contradiction. Our Design Center started to see the demand for a fiber optic product that could support today's current needs, but would have the potential to support the transition to Ethernet without a complete infrastructure retrofit. The FVTFVR10D1E does that. It operates as a point-to-point video and data transmission system and an Ethernet media converter."
The major advantage the ComNet FVTFVR10D1E brings is that it future-proofs your project," continued Milani.

"ComNet is staying ahead of the migration toward video over Ethernet. But we're also aware of the cost pressures many end-users are placing on integrators and dealers," said Skip Haight, ComNet Vice President of Marketing. "By offering a model that can accommodate both baseband video and Ethernet, we're providing a cost-effective solution that gives an unparalleled amount of flexibility and is a tremendous overall cost saver." Haight continued.

ComNet offers an extensive line of fiber optic video and data transmission equipment as well as a line of Ethernet Network equipment that is uniquely toughened to meet the needs of the Security and Intelligent Transportation System market. Full product line details are available at The ComNet product line is represented by some of the top manufacturer rep firms in the US and Canada. Call direct 203-796-5300 or email for details.
