    Integrated optical modulator is a key element of thebroadband optical information systems, providing the translation of digital and analog information content to optical carrier. A new developed modulator configuration is of particular interest for the systems employing separate distant modulator. The use of translation format based on polarization modulation does not involve the operating point stabilization and additional power supply for the modulator electrodes, that is especially important for the distant modulator. The operating point demodulation takes place during demodulation.
