Mikrotron and Phrontier have partnered to produce acamera and extender packages that increases CoaXPress transmission distance over fiber up to 50 miles (80 kilometers), according to a joint statement.
The transmission reportedly maintains low jitter, high-resolution video streaming with a downlink of up to 4x 6.25 Gbps and uplink at 20.83 Mbps. Used in the collaborative effort was the Phrontier PHORTE CXP Fiber Extender with the Mikrotron EoSens CXP+ Series cameras. Combined, these products create an integrated, fully-compatible solution designed to help engineers in Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS), remote monitoring and other long-distance applications better manage their networks and accelerate data-driven decision-making, according to the press release.
Video and control signals can be transmitted up to 50 miles over single mode fiber to provide full control of the data stream and cameras, or up to 400m in multi-mode. Phrontier plans to resell EoSens CXP+ Series cameras with the PHORTE and adopt the combination as a platform.
"We see great potential for bringing the amazing speed, resolution and responsiveness of Mikrotron EoSens CXP+ cameras to the long-distance market using Phrontier products as a technological base," said Bob Grietens, Vice President Industrial Sales and Corporate Development at Lakesight Technologies, the parent company of Mikrotron. "This new combined solution will help our customers become more efficient and reduce costs, especially those designing systems for ITS."
