The application of optical amplifiers to access networks is expected to have the greatest impact on optical video distribution systems. Among optical amplifiers, EDFAs are being commercially used in video trunk line systems because of their advanced maturity. This paper surveys the applications of optical amplifiers. For optical video systems that utilize optical amplifiers, we review their technical problems and countermeasures.
