This article experimentally demonstrates uncompressed high-definition video distribution in V-band (50–75 GHz) and W-band (75–110 GHz) fiber-wireless links achieving 3 m of wireless transmission in both cases. Access architecture is experimentally emulated by deploying single/multi-mode fibers. For the W-band, experimental assessment of passive and active approaches for implementation of remote antenna units is reported. The bit error rate performance of the optical and wireless channels is reported. A successful transmission of real-time uncompressed high-definition video in the V- and W-band fiber-wireless systems is demonstrated with prospects to pave the way for application-focused fiber-wireless connectivity.
