Artel Video Systems, a provider of video over fiber optics
transport equipment, has introduced an updated and expanded version of its MegaWav optical multiplexing system.
The new generation MegaWav now features 40-channel DWDM
with 100GHz spacing and 8-channel CWDM; in addition, insertion losses have been substantially decreased allowing for greater transmition distances.
The DWDM MegaWav products include ten 4-channel options, five 8-channel options, two 16-channel options, two 20-channel options, a 40-channel option, and 40 single-channel options.
The CWDM MegaWav features four 4-channel options and an 8-channel option. For space efficiency and ruggedness, MegaWav maintains its form as a passive module in a 1RU chassis.
With the updated MegaWav optical multiplexing system, users can now create fiber efficient complex optical networks for Artel products or third party products that meet the ITU-T G.694 standard.
“As the market for broadcast quality video transport expands and fiber utilization becomes a bigger issue, customers frequently encounter the need for more efficient use of rack space and better fiber utilization. Artel has responded by developing the DL4000 and updating our successful MegaWav platform,” said Richard Dellacanonica, President of Artel. “Using Artel equipment users can transport many dozens of multi-format signals, all in native format over a single strand of fiber.”
