Tactical Fiber Systems A Leading Provider of Cost Effective Fiber Based Transmission Systems for Video Production


Tactical Fiber Systems A Leading Provider of Cost Effective Fiber Based Transmission Systems for Video Production

In the past , the use of fiber technology in video production was limited mainly to broadcasters and producers with deep pockets. But the recent availability of low cost fiber transmission components is a “game changer” that enables us to deliver value priced fiber systems that anyone can afford. TFS strives to make the selection process fast & easy with cost effective cables and combination packages shipped directly to you from our factory in Boca Raton, Florida.

Our Tactical Fiber cables are military grade and perfect for repeat use in the field.They are highly durable, protected by kevlar and can withstand heavy foot traffic. Yet, they are lightweight, compact and easily transportable — i.e a 500 foot TFS reel weighs only 18 pounds and requires a square foot of space. TFS tactical fiber cables meet strict testing standards to satisfy a variety of applications – from military use to sporting events to corporate commercials.

We value our customers and strive to exceed their expectations. If you have questions, our knowledgeable staff is more than happy to assist you in selecting a product and/or package that suits your specific needs and budget.
