Unfortunately no one had an answer for me. Apparently there is no way to run
Sun color video over fiber. Can anyone tell me of a vendor which sells sound
proofing for computer hardware? Maybe a ventilated sound box which holds CPU's
and peripherals?

Original query:

> Reasons for this vary from voice recognition equipment which is very sensitive

> 300 series machines and would like to run them from their office I am aware of

> 2 multi mode fiber (62 micron)
> 2 single mode filer (8 micron)
> 1 category 5 TP (4 pair)
> 1 category 3 TP (4 pair)

> Is there any hardware which will accommodate this breakout?

> PS I am aware of using long coax, X terminals, dumb terminals
