Fiberlink - Component and S-Video Family

Fiberlink specifications key

Vortex Communications imports the Fiberlink® range of Fibre-Optic transmission products from Communications Specialities Inc to Europe. They complement the established Sourcerer range of CAT-x distribution products and provide exceptional performance at a cost-effective price.

Fiberlink® is the most extensive collection of Fibre-Optic transmission systems from any manufacturer and offers products that support nearly every type of video, audio and data signal.

Fiberlink® is digital – which means that the signals are sampled, digitized and multiplexed for sending over the Fibre-Optic cable, providing virtually loss-less transmission over great distances with extremely high immunity to noise, distortion and interference. Conventional Fibre-Optic systems rely on analogue technology where the light level on the Fibre-Optic cable varies with signal level which is therefore often subject to degradation especially as distances increase.

Fiberlink® makes solutions practical and affordable. Fiberlink® is a truly plug-n-play system which does not require any special tools, adjustments, equalization or deskewing during installation.

Fiberlink® offers unbeatable performance and simplicity at a very affordable price. Fiberlink® moves your signals digitally using light, not electricity, so your signal is immune to interference, ground-loops and EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) – virtually every prohibitive characteristic of copper is eliminated!

Fiberlink® can send your signals further and with greater signal fidelity; multiple signals and signal types can be multiplexed over a single fibre-optic core with no distortion or equalization and deskewing.

Fibre is very affordable and can be purchased for less than CAT-5 in most cases. Fibre can be easily terminated on-site. Fibre is thinner, more flexible and stronger than coax, CAT-5, CAT-6 and twisted pair and stands up to greater abuse. Fiberlink® offers complex point-to-multipoint and drop-and-repeat capabilities making it easy to take advantage of Fiberlink®'s benefits in any Pro AV application.
