RF Venue introduces the OPTIX Series 3, a high-performance RF to fiber optic (RFoF) conversion system designed to facilitate the remote placement of wireless audio antennas. Series 3 is a complete re-design from the previous generation and offers features and performance for distributed antenna systems across VHF, UHF, and 900 MHz bands and it’s now shipping. Here’s a video overview of the Optix Series 3:

The OPTIX Transmitter module converts RF signals arriving from an antenna source into a singlemode optical signal, sending that signal down a length of fiber-optic cable to the OPTIX Receiver module which converts the source signal back into RF. Without any signal loss over the optical cable, the OPTIX system can extend the range of antenna placement up to several kilometers, eliminating the need for bulky and lossy coaxial cable runs.

Well-suited for live production as well as installed sound, OPTIX Series 3 features extensive user configurable controls to manage signal level, apply DC power for active antennas or amplifiers, and even directly monitor outputs to dial in performance. Compatible across VHF, UHF, and the 900 MHz band, OPTIX Series 3 is compatible across any brand wireless audio system.

Features

  • Adjustable gain and attenuation controls
  • Available DC Power for active antennas and in-line amplifiers
  • Monitor Output on Transmitter for dialing in performance
  • Dual Outputs on the Receiver module can connect to multiple wireless systems  
  • Signal level and status indicator lights
