A Fiber Optical Communication System (FOCS) is used to experimentally demonstrate the transmission of multi-channel information of two High Definition (HD) video signals and 18 digital TV channels. These signals are supplied using commercial Raspberry Pi boards and digital TV Antennas, respectively. Both digital signals and lightwaves of a couple of Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers with wavelengths located at 1547.5 and 1552.5 nm interact with two Mach-Zehnder Intensity Modulators (MZ-IM). The resulting modulated optical signals from each modulator are combined by using an optical coupler. The combined optical field is amplified and transmitted through 30 km of single-mode optical fiber. To demultiplex the combined optical signals, a bandpass optical filter is used, then a PIN-photodetector is connected to recover HD video signals and the 18 digital TV channels. The measured electrical spectrum of the received signals shows that the transmission is performed without interference and the multi-channel information is successfully received in an HD display. The use of wavelengths with linewidths of 10 MHz and an optical fiber with a chromatic dispersion of 17 ps/nm-km allows for a maximum bit rate of approximately 11 Gbps to be achieved numerically. This result guarantees that HD video signals can be experimentally transmitted successfully with Bit Error Rate (BER) values between 10-6 and 10-15 when the optical power of lasers is tuned between 7 and 9 dBm.
