.The high-performance, low-cost, complete fiber optic video link

Beamer-VTM is a high-quality, low-cost fiber optic video transmission system designed to transmit color or black and white video signals at distances that can vary from a few feet to more than a mile. The system transmits over standard multimode fiber and is ideal for both indoor and protected outdoor applications, including security, videoconferencing, CCTV and medical monitoring.

Beamer-VTM is compatible with all analog video standards, including NTSC, PAL and SECAM, and will operate with all 62.5 micron multimode fiber optic cable and industry standard ST type optical connectors.

The flexible system is available as dual channel transmitter and receiver card versions, or in a single channel box version that can be purchased as a complete system. The units are easily and quickly installed with just a simple screwdriver and are designed for long, trouble-free operation.
Immunity to the effects of electrical interference, ground loops, explosive and hazardous environments, water and high voltages make Beamer-VTM a superior low-cost alternative to coax cable.

Metrotek also offers multimode fiber optic cable for use with the Beamer-VTM system. Cable must be purchased separately.
