    How to extend a single link digital DVI display up to 4,920 feet (1,500 meters)
  • "Electric Picture conducted a signal path upgrade for Venture NOTC, the Naval Officer Training Center in Esquimalt, BC, Canada in September, 2012. The installation was done under Kongsberg Maritime Systems contract with Canadian Defense. We used the 2LC fiber solution - in particular the NTI ST-2FODVI-LC Fiber Optic Transmitter/Receiver pairs. There were 6 simulators with multiple display channels – all running 1920x1080/60Hz, plus 8 radar display channels running same high resolution rate. In addition, we replaced the signal switching and installed three new touch-panel controllers enabling the instructor to change training visual and radar databases as needed.

    We had a small window of opportunity in which to do the changeover from analog RGBHV to Fiber Optic as this facility is in use 50 wks/year for ships bridge training. We used 106 transmitter/receiver pairs and had a slight glitch with only one receiver, which was replaced – door to door – within a week. The video quality was excellent going to/from all locations – some fiber runs as long as 50m. The customer was extremely pleased with the performance, and as a result is considering an upgrade to their other training facility.

    We will continue to use NTI 2LC fiber-optic transmitters and receivers for future jobs. This is consistent with all their products which have been excellent quality and value-priced."
