The use of fiber optics in the broadcast industry began in the mid-1980s but increased exponentially in the 1990s with the advent of digital video. The growing use of HDTV cameras created the need to transport signals with a higher bit rate over long distances. Fiber optics offers not only greater bandwidth over longer distances but also a better signal to noise ratio, greater immunity to interference and reduced size and weight.
