Zalud’s Blog has learned that Communication Networks of Danbury, Conn., doing business as ComNet, a manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, has introduced and officially released another series of all-new fiber optic video products. The FVR11 and FVR10 are fiber optic video receivers for use over multimode optical fiber. Either model receives a single baseband video channel as an optical signal from up to 2.5km to where it is converted back to baseband video for monitoring. The difference is the FVR10 features a manual gain adjustment and is a more cost-effective than the FVR11. The FVR11 features automatic gain control that automatically adjusts changes in the camera output that might degrade the video quality. Both are brand new designs from ComNet utilizing state of the art components to ensure better performance and reliability.

According to George Lichtblau, ComNet chairman, “single-channel fiber optic video transmitters and receivers are in use in thousands of applications. These types of video fiber optic video products are installed just about everywhere. But, many of the products available today are from 20-year-old designs. The ComNet FVR10 and FVR11 are a new approach. I’m confident the performance and reliability of this model surpasses anything comparable on the market today.” “I’m so confident in this new design, ComNet™ will back it with a lifetime warranty”, continued Lichtblau.

The FVR10 and 11 are part of the first release of products from ComNet. “The FVR10 and FVR11 line is another part of a very complete fiber optic product line we’re introducing”, said Skip Haight, ComNet vice president of marketing. “The product lines we’re introducing now are the result of years of fiber optic experience. But the major difference between ComNet and the other suppliers is the customer care experience we offer. ComNet is a complete full-service company and not just a product line. From the initial contact forward, our customers will be truly surprised about how good the customer experience is. “ Haight continued.

ComNet just recently announced its intention to offer 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.
