The opticlinkTM LS-16 offers long haul video transmission over fiber optics cable. This interface can be used for transmission of LVDS video data up to about 40 to 60 kilometer without optical repeaters.

It is a transparent interface, so it is compatible with almost all available LVDS cameras and third party framegrabbers. The opticlinkTM transmits not only video data from camera to framegrabber. Two bidirectional RS-232 channels and camera control signals from framegrabber to camera are transmitted too.
