Serial transmission of image data through an optical fiber is inefficient in the utilization of the channel capacity of the fiber. Parallel image transmission techniques, on the other hand, generally limit the transmission length to a few meters. A novel approach is introduced with which 2-D image data can be transmitted efficiently at high speed over a single optical fiber using wavelength–time multiplexing. Several system configurations designed for different types of input are presented.
