MRV Communications, a leading provider of products and services for out-of-band networking, WDM and optical transport, metro Ethernet, fiber-optic components, 10GE, and other service-aware networking products, has announced a new family of digital video fiber-optic transceivers that allow transport of uncompressed high-definition video over standard fiber-optic networks.

The new Digital Video SFP family enables postproduction facilities and rich-media studios to transport HD-SDI video over dark fiber using networking gear from any vendor that supports the small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) standard.

One market opportunity is to allow postproduction facilities to share uncompressed baseband HD and SD video throughout a metropolitan area, a possibility now under consideration at Broadway Video. "I was impressed at how easy it was to transport HD and SD video in the same system that offered GigE and Fibre Channel connectivity," says Dirk Van Dall, general manager, Broadway Video Digital Media Services, New York design and postproduction service companies and a major independent producer of television and film entertainment. "With MRV equipment, a high-speed data link between diverse operations can do double-duty as an uncompressed HD baseband connection. We can even set the system up to have both high-speed data and HD/SD baseband concurrently. It's seamless and well integrated into their system, and an extremely versatile way to link locations."

"As HD content becomes the norm in more industries, the limitations to transporting it on a network have a bigger impact on budgets and on turnaround time for projects," says Noam Lotan, MRV president and CEO. "We wanted to mark MRV's debut into the video networking marketplace with these SFPs because they so strongly change the equation, making transporting video over a fiber network as easy and cost-effective as any other protocol."
