  • Patent number: 11388374
    Abstract: In a video signal transmission system using fiber optic cable, an improved optical transceiver module (fiber module) having integrated video signal processing capabilities can be used in video signal transmitters for video sources, video signal receivers for display devices, or video switching devices. The improved fiber module has a form factor complying with the Small Form-factor Pluggable standard, and a standard optical fiber connector. In addition to an optical transceiver, the improved fiber modules includes a ¼ inch signal processing chip programmed to perform video signal processing. The mainboard of the video signal transmitter or receiver or the video switching device has additional signal processing chips for processing non-video signals such as audio, data, network, RS-232, and IR remote control signals, but they do not perform video signal processing. Another embodiment is a fiber optic cable with an electrical signal connector module that integrates a video signal processing chip.

  • Patent number: 11277593
    Abstract: A video signal transmitter or receiver for handling multiple video signals, including mainboard signal processing circuitry, one master fiber module, and one or more add-on fiber modules. Video data signal for the multiple videos are transmitted over the master and add-on fiber modules, but no video control signal is transmitted over any add-on fiber module. Video control signal for all of the multiple videos are transmitted on a first subset of channels of the master fiber module in a multiplexed manner. The mainboard signal processing circuitry cooperates with the signal processing chip of the master fiber module to process all video control signals, with the master fiber module processing video control signals for at least two videos. Non-video signals are processed by the mainboard circuitry and transmitted on a second subset of channels of the master fiber module (same as or different from the first subset of channels).

  • Publication number: 20150338591
    Abstract: A fiber optic cable is disclosed, a fiber optic cable containing multiple optical fibers within an enclosure, where the fibers are divided into two groups, the first group of fibers being arrayed together and the second group being free fibers. The arrayed fibers are used to carry signals that are desired to be maintained in synchronization with each other, while the free fibers are used to carry signals whose synchronization with other signals is not important. In one example, four optical fibers form a linear array, and two free optical fibers are arranged on two sides of the linear array.
