Cost Effective Equipment Replacement

I have a local school that is on a tight budget and they are currently having issues with an older camera setup. Several piece of equipment have been damaged by power surges and they need the complete system working. Having issues finding a single mode fiber video sender/receiver unit. The current ones are Pelco and are not longer available. The entire system is going to be replaced within the next year or so. The board of education has already started to develop a budget for a new system, but they are currently constructing a new school, so they have put the upgrade on hold. I have included pictures of the current unit they are using.
