CATV over Fiber???

CATV over Fiber???

Looking to Connect 2 Locations 600' apart. The owner does not want any coax in the underground pipe. Im pulling in 6 Strands of Fiber across and was thinking of using CATV/Fiber converters to acomplish TV signal????
Another guy suggested pulling sheilded CAT5e across and using converters on them????

Any input is good input!!

RE: CATV over Fiber???

We send a video signal to our local cable provider over fiber via one of these: http://www.emcore.com/fiber_optics/catv_fttx/catv_fttx_products?pid=91  I assume they have a matching receiver on their end.  

There are other possibly suitable products here: http://www.emcore.com/fiber_optics/catv_fttx

RE: CATV over Fiber???

This is an everyday thing in the cable world.  As indicated earlier, you need a pair of media adapters.  You also generally need singlemode fiber.
