Summary: 
This paper describes the impact of EDFAs on AM/FM FDM subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) all-fiber video distribution (AFVD) systems. As AM/FM hybrid system using EDFAs which can simultaneously distribute 11 AM-TV channels and 50 FM-TV channels is proposed and discussed. 4-stage amplifier-branch transmission experiments are introduced. The construction and performance of a newly designed 50 channel FM tuner are also presented.
