Sescom Portable Audio Over Fiber Extender for Remote Locations

Sescom has introduced a new battery-operated audio over fiber extender that sends balanced mic or line level signals up to 12.4 miles over a single fiber cable.

Sescom said the SES-X-FA2 transmitter and receiver each feature two balanced XLR inputs and two XLR outputs and a simplex ST connector. The receiver includes a switch for selecting mic or line level for each channel.

Designed for studio or field applications, the transmitter and the receiver can be powered with AC power adapters or 9VDC batteries (both included).

“In addition to standard power adapters, this extender can be powered with batteries making it ideal for remote location applications such as ENG, OB vans, stadiums and theaters," said Jon Fitzer, director of Sescom.

The system is priced at $849.95.
