A proof-of-concept real-time high definition (HD) video stream delivered over 50 m of 1 mm core diameter graded index plastic optical fiber and 3 m wireless link employing multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing ultrawideband (UWB) technology is studied and demonstrated. The HD video signal encapsulated into UWB frames exhibited an error vector magnitude performance of 11.9%, which is compliant with Federal Communications Commission requirements. Low-cost and off-the-shelf components were employed to realize a cost-effective solution for broadband in-home networks.
