In response to a large U.S. Government facility requirement for an extremely reliable, fail-safe video and data transmission system, ComNet introduced its unique SHR product series. This is a fiber optic drop-and-insert/self-healing ring video and data transmission system designed for large-area perimeter surveillance and monitoring applications. Designed for use with the optical fiber typically configured as a true ring, the optical network may also be configured in the easier-to-deploy linear add-drop topology. The SHR system utilizes 10-bit digital encoding of baseband composite video for true broadcast quality video performance, and provides an easy to install platform for the video and control data to be inserted and extracted at multiple insert-and-drop (or monitoring) locations throughout the network. Transmission distances of up to 30 miles (48 km) between nodes is available when the single-mode variant of this equipment is employed, making the SHR system ideal for extremely wide area networks and related applications Successfully installed for over a year, and completely satisfying the Governments difficult schedule and technical requirements, this product provided a cost-effective and highly reliable solution to a challenging security-related application, and is another example of the engineering innovation and responsiveness ComNet brings to the Government market.
