3000 Series

Analogue Fibre Icon

The AMG3000 series of analogue fibre transmission equipment is a multiple transmitter 'drop and insert' system designed for fibre ring applications. With multiple video channels, Ethernet, low speed data and audio signals transmission capability per transmitter device, up to 8 transmitter units can be placed on a single fibre ring as standard, extendable to 128 using AMG's 16 wavelength CWDM couplers. The AMG3600 series is designed for multimode fibre, whilst the AMG3700 series is designed for singlemode fibre.

Designed for the job


Delivering highly resilient and managed transmission of up to 128 video signals, 256 data/audio and 1.6Gbps of data per fibre ring, the AMG3000 ranges is ideal for larger installations where performance and reliability are of paramount importance. Analogue video is transmitted in a real time uncompressed loss-less digital format whilst the option of 1.6Gbps Ethernet transmission ensures high definition cameras and other IP devices can share the same fibre infrastructure. As no compression of the video is used, there is no latency or compromise on quality making it idea for PTZ cameras and real-time data transmission. AMG's optional NMS (Network Management System) is SNMP compatible and provides alarms associated with any break in the optical fibre together with loss of video signals, essential for preventative monitoring of critical sites.

3000 Series Designed for the job

Resilient fibre ring technology

The unique drop and insert system allows up to 8 transmitters per fibre ring (extendable to 128 with CWDM) without any loss of performance. Equipment can be configured to collect individual, or multiple video signals e.g. along a highway, a rail link or airport perimeter in a ‘daisy chain’, transmitting them all back to one or more control rooms. This allows for significant savings on fibre optic infrastructure when compared with traditional point to point methods of video collection. Systems can be designed in a ‘spur’ or a ‘ring’ depending on site requirements and when configured in a dual redundant/self-healing ring option, the AMG3000 series ensures no loss of signal following a catastrophic fibre or node failure making it ideal for critical sites.


Real-time loss-less digital transmission:
No loss of quality and zero lag, ideal for telemetry controlled PTZ CCTV cameras and transmission of time critical data such as serial bus data and alarms

High capacity ring topology:
Up to 128 video signals, 1.6Gbit/s of Ethernet and 256 data/audio signals transmitted simultaneously on one fibre

Dual Optical Redundancy:
Both transmission paths are continually monitored and will self-heal automatically when a fibre break is detected

Built-in redundant switching:
No additional mechanical switching required to provide resilient ring operation

Simultaneous multiple video, Ethernet, data and audio transmission:
Only one transmission device required at each location to service multiple cameras a data devices

Wide link dynamic range:
No link margin adjustment required for installation, just plug in and switch on
