Wireless audio specialist RF Venue has released the second generation of its Optix system, an affordable RF-over-fibre platform that allows the remote placement of wireless audio antennae using single-mode fibre-optic cable.

RF Venue OptixOptix comprises of two modules: a transmitter placed at the remote antenna site and a receiver at the rack or FOH location. Both modules have been redesigned with new components, connectors, and enclosures for improved performance and ease of use. The revised Optix offers female BNC connectors for all RF/antenna connections, and ST/UPC optical connectors for fiber-optic cable connections. Additional signal and power indicator lights have also been added.

‘Optix has been well received by audio professionals who want to eliminate lossy, expensive coaxial cable from their wireless systems,’ says RF Venue CEO, Chris Regan. ‘The second generation maintains the superb dynamic range and quality of the RF signal, while adding industry standard connectors requested by many users.

‘The new connector types allow you to plug coaxial cable from remote antennas directly into the transmitter module without adapters,’ Regan adds. ‘And ST terminated fiber ensures compatibility with the majority of fiber inventory already in place at AVL companies.’

Both second-generation Optix modules include DC power supplies, and are mounted in enclosures of identical proportions for additional flexibility in rack deployments. A package is available that includes two of each module for the distribution of diversity antenna systems. OPTX1 (single channel) is priced at US$799 MAP, and OPTX2 (dual/diversity channel) at US$1,599 MAP.
