Fiber in the Cockpit!

FiberPlex – There’s a tactical reason why fighter pilots need good vision. He who sees first, strikes first. But anymore, that kind of vigilance takes more than good eyesight. Today’s next-generation avionics include thermal and infrared imaging, better radar systems and enhanced surveillance systems that require the transference of huge amounts of data in real-time. […]

FiberPlex WEN-6 Waveguide Extension Nut

FiberPlex WGF series of waveguide filters provide a way of bringing pre-terminated fiber optic cables into a shielded enclosure while maintaining the enclosure’s radio frequency isolation integrity. The diameter and length of the bore are precisely calculated to provide a measured attenuation at a specific cutoff frequency. This works extremely well, but occasionally the wall […]

Happy 50th, Fiber Communications!

FiberPlex Technologies We couldn’t let 2016 slip into history without recognizing a milestone anniversary. Fifty years ago, research engineer Sir Charles Kao published his findings on fiber optic communications in a paper read by his peers. Copper cabling was the transport medium of the day and what Sir Kao proposed was quite remarkable. His 1966 […]

Fiber Brings Live Video Production Home

FiberPlex Taking a video production on the road is a complicated process – cameras, operators, sound people, remote producers, portable editing suites and miles of cable. Taking the show overseas further complicates the process, requiring shipments of large containers well in advance of the event, along with piles of paperwork and customs declaration forms. Adding […]

FiberPlex: 3 Fiber Myths We Continue to Tell Ourselves in AV

FiberPlex Blog In some ways, the AV industry is bipolar. We love new technology, always wanting to see what’s new and what’s next. But at the same time, we love what’s comfortable and continue to return to “the ways we’ve always done it” when designing and installing AV systems. While we all desire to be […]

Uncompressed Video Surveillance. Detail is King.

Fiberplex Technologies Security surveillance has become a modern necessity. It lets us monitor activities without actually being there and offers a fixed physical record, unlike the memories of eyewitnesses. One well-trained operator can monitor more area and in greater detail, which is why remote surveillance has proven to be a force multiplier in the world […]

Maximizing Infrastructure – Is There Gold In Your Walls?

FiberPlex Technologies, Kyle Rosenbloom  In retrospect it’s wonderful that so many buildings had the foresight to install fiber optics in their walls. The copper lines originally used are now past their breaking point, having exceeded their limitations. Copper has become woefully inefficient when faced with the current need for lightning-fast data transmission and cyber security. […]
