Transition Networks’ analog video copper-to-fiber media converters provide a means to transport analog NTSC, PAL or SECAM video signals plus pan, tilt and zoom serial data over multimode or single mode fiber, allowing integration of copper-based PTZ cameras with optical infrastructure. The converters are meant to be used in pairs with the TX converter transmitting an analog video signal from the coaxial output on the camera over fiber optic cabling to an optical video RX converter that then converts the signal back to an analog NTSC, PAL or SECAM video signal on coax. The PTZ functionality is transmitted via a serial data signal compatible with RS232/RS422/RS485 from the twisted pair port on the PTZ controller over the same optical link between converters and then converted back to copper cabling near the camera.
