Iroquois, ON, Canada – March 31, 2010 – Ross Video will be releasing a range of CWDM optical transmitters, optical muxes and optical demuxes to allow customers to fully utilize available bandwidth on their existing fiber connections.
Releasing at NAB 2010 are eight dual CWDM transmitters for a total of 16 optical wavelengths, a four channel MUX/DMX with expansion port, an eight channel MUX/DMX and an eight channel MUX/DMX with expansion.
