AMG Systems of the United Kingdom and USA is introducing a new and innovative fibre optic video, data and contact closure line, designed to support a new generation of multi-megapixel coaxial cameras with the need for ultra-high security.

The AMG fibre optic transmission line is not IP-based, disallowing any potential security risk into the network, in addition, there is no latency due to no encoding used as with an Ethernet system. The introduction of the AMG fibre optic line is the first advancement in many years and will set the standard for years. The AMG line consists of fibre optic video, video, and data, serial data, and contact closure products for signal transport using the benefits of fibre optic media.

The line consists of the AMGFIB-1VT/(VR) Series of industrially hardened single channel video transmitter/receiver, with one Duplex RS422/485 Serial Data, two Contact Closure, and supporting all modern SD & HD video formats including CVBS (PAL, NTSC, SECAM), CVI, TVI & AHD and camera resolutions up to 1960p with SD, HD, up to 5-megapixel camera types all major brands. Additionally, an AMGFIB-1SD Series Industrially hardened serial data transceiver with one Duplex RS422/485 Serial Data, and two Contact Closures. Also, a fiber optic contact closure AMGFIB-3CC Series Industrially Hardened Contact Closure Transceiver with two Contact Closures. All three product lines are designed in the USA and UK, manufactured in the UK in an ISO Certified AMG facility, are hardened for use in challenging environments, capable of meeting NEMA TS-2 standards, and lifetime warranted.

Steve Clarke, AMG's Managing Director, said, “Although legacy fibre optic transmission systems are being replaced by IP, there are thousands of fibre optic transmission networks still in use. With the push toward, IP, no real effort has been directed toward modernising traditional fibre optic video and data products. This next generation of AMG fibre optic products is a major step forward. Completely new, with modern available components, now made in our ISO9001 certified facility, AMG fibre optic products are a great combination of quality, availability and still extremely cost-effective compared to what’s out there,” Clarke concluded.

Tom Exley, AMG Technical Director adds “The AMG fibre optic transmission product line continues our quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses, and engineered our fibre optic product line to overcome those weaknesses. One of the big issues facing the competition is parts availability. Competing fibre optic products were developed 15-20 years ago, sourcing 20-year-old components is a challenge, and that’s likely the reason for extended production delays and price increases. The AMG line is all new. New designs, and new components and now manufactured in an ISO9001-certified facility. And, most importantly, they are available when you need them. We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support.”
