'Super Hi-Vision' (SHV) is promising as a future form of television. It is an ultra-high definition TV system that has 16 times the number of pixels of HDTV and employs a 22.2 multichannel sound system. It offers superior presence and gives the impression of reality. The information bitrates of the current prototypes range from 24 to 72 Gbit/s, and a fiber optic transmission system is needed to transfer even just one channel. This paper describes the optical transmission technologies that have been developed for SHV inter-equipment connects and links between outdoor sites and broadcasting stations.
