This month our presentation provides an overview of the practical applications for Fiber Optics in AV and Broadcast. The presentation begins with a short video and Powerpoint discussing the different types of fiber optic cables, connectors, and Media Converters used in Broadcast and AV applications, including SMPTE, opticalCON, and Tactical Fiber products.  We will also cover practical installation considerations and maintenance for inside plant, arenas and other venues, studios, and mobile use. Next, we will conduct a live demonstration of termination, cleaning and testing procedures including interferometry and insertion loss with the opportunity to ask any questions.
