AMG’s New Fiber Optic Video and Data Product Line


AMG Systems of the United Kingdom and USA has introduced new fiber optic video, data and contact closure line.

AMG sees an application for these new fiber optic products to support a new generation of multi-megapixel coaxial cameras with the need for ultra-high security.

The AMG Fiber optic transmission line is not IP-based, disallowing any potential security risk into the network, in addition, there is no latency due to no encoding used as with an Ethernet system.

The line consists of the AMGFIB-1VT/(VR) Series of industrially hardened single channel video transmitter/receiver, with one Duplex RS422/485 Serial Data, two Contact Closure, and supporting all modern SD & HD video formats including CVBS (PAL, NTSC, SECAM), CVI, TVI & AHD and camera resolutions up to 1960p with SD, HD, up to 5-megapixel camera types all major brands.

An AMGFIB-1SD Series Industrially hardened serial data transceiver with one Duplex RS422/485 Serial Data, and two Contact Closures.

In addition, a Fiber Optic Contact Closure AMGFIB-3CC Series Industrially Hardened Contact Closure Transceiver with two Contact Closures.

All three product lines are designed in the USA and UK, manufactured in the UK in an ISO Certified AMG facility, are hardened for use in challenging environments, capable of meeting NEMA TS-2 standards, and lifetime warranted.

Steve Clarke, AMG’s Managing Director, said, “Although legacy fiber optic transmission systems are being replaced by IP, there are thousands of fiber optic transmission networks still in use. With the push toward, IP, no real effort has been directed toward modernizing traditional fiber optic video and data products. This next generation of AMG fiber optic products is a major step forward. Completely new, with modern available components, now made in our ISO9001 certified facility, AMG fiber optic products are a great combination of quality, availability and still extremely cost-effective compared to what’s out there,” Clarke concluded.

Tom Exley, AMG Technical Director adds “The AMG fiber optic transmission product line continues our quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses, and engineered our fiber optic product line to overcome those weaknesses. One of the big issues facing the competition is parts availability. Competing fiber optic products were developed 15-20 years ago, sourcing 20-year-old components is a challenge, and that’s likely the reason for extended production delays and price increases. The AMG line is all new. New designs, and new components and now manufactured in an ISO9001-certified facility. And, most importantly, they are available when you need them. We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support.”
