Experimental transmission of a HDMI signal through a photonic link at 1550 nm is successfully demonstrated. The proposed experimental set up is based on external modulation. The HDMI signal is generated by a Raspberry Pi Model B in order to modulate an optical signal. The intensity modulation process is carried out by using a Mach-Zehnder Modulator. The resulting signal is transmitted over 30 km of optical fiber and with the direct detection principle the information is recovered and visualized on a TV screen.
