914-HDV2  Media Converter

The Focal 914-HDV2 is an extremely compact, harsh environment, single card solution for dual High Definition (HD) video. The model is targeted for use with small Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), HD video broadcast, or ROV survey upgrades. A great solution for upgrading or designing a new system. With its compact size and no enclosure, the model can fit in very small spaces and allows for minimal pressure bottle diameters.

The fiber-optic transmitter in the video input can be provided in four standard CWDM wavelength pairs, or tailored with almost any combination of CWDM wavelengths. The fiber-optic transmitter uses powerful CWDM lasers and the fiber-optic receiver uses a sensitivity fiber-optic receiver to maintain a high link budget. Focal also provides fiber-optic multiplexer cards to work with the 914 form-factor or the 907 form-factor.
