This paper presents information about fiber optic technology, including: 1) A mini-tutorial on the techology; 2) facts and myths about fiber optics; 3) what needs to be known about specifying fiber cables (both single mode and multimode); 4) how a fiber optic connector should be selected; and 5) current trends for both in-studio and outdoor sound reinforcement systems. Like the operational amplifier, fiber optics has found a home in professional audio and recording.
