Huntsville, Alabama – July 7, 2010- PESA, a major provider of broadcast and Pro AV distribution and router transport solutions is now shipping the new Sabertooth fiber optic mini-extenders to transport SD/HD/3G-SDI video over long distances using just one fiber optic cable.

They provide high performance media conversion between BNC equipped 75 Ohm coax and LC connector-style single mode or multimode fiber cable. With a diameter smaller than a BNC connector, the Sabertooth allows for the tightest possible unit-to-unit pitch available making them ideal for sharing fiber and coax connections on a standard BNC-based router. more
