ViaLite RF over fiber is used at large broadcast events to extend the range of the antennas that wireless cameras, microphones and production communications (in-ear monitors, intercoms and IFBs) use. Distances of 300ft or more generally require RF over fiber, which is also more cost effective than using high quality coaxial cables (typically used for shorter distances). A single fiber can also be used for multiple wireless cameras or devices.
Most outdoor sporting events require fiber optic links, as do arena and theater events where the action takes place off stage. A typical example is on a golf tournament or major race-car event or when the talent walks through the audience, or down the red carpet and requires microphone or camera coverage.
Outside broadcast applications:
- Sports: motor racing, horse racing, soccer, large athletic events etc.
- Virtual Reality TV (VRTV)
- Other outdoor events: major award shows such as the OSCARS or EMMYS, state funerals and weddings etc.
Fiber based antenna-remoting offers a number of advantages over conventional coax and triax solutions:
- Higher performance signal transmission
- Longer link distances
- Lighter and faster to deploy
- Can be integrated with an existing network.
In addition, ViaLite rack equipment and small-form factor modules can be integrated into existing receiver equipment to convert the signals onto fiber for relay back to production desks. Using WDM, ViaLite can multiplex diversity antenna signals down a single fiber as well as reverse camera control.Collapse
