3G SDI over fiber, 3G SDI Fiber Extender with RS485 control for data  

Optical Transmitter Receiver kit -

Extend 3G, HD-SDI or SD-SDI digital video signals over single-mode fiber optic cable
Base Model F-M1SDI-3G-TX / RX support single mode fiber up to 20Km and it has ST / PC connector

Thor Fiber ultra compact 3G SDI fiber extender kits are designed to increase the range of digital 3G, SD-SDI or HD-SDI video signals over singlemode fiber optic cable. SDI is normally carried over coax cable on BNC connectors, however the maximum cable distance is limited to around 100 meters. Thor SDI extenders increase the distance to more than 80 miles by using lasers to send data over the fiber cable. 

F-M1SDI-3G-TX/RX kit with ST/PC fiber connector, supports single mode fiber up to 20Km 

Up to 3G SDI Optical Fiber converters.

It allows the transport of SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G SDI over distances up to 20km using single-mode fiber optic cable with ST/PC Standard

Question and Answers
That won't be an issue. If you have the M1sdi-3G units; the transmit and receive pair; you can check the specs' and see on multimode fiber they work for about 2000ft; but over singlemode fiber the standard units go about 20km. 
In none of the situations you mention above are you coming even remotely close to 20km so the standard stock units should be more than capable to handle your current environment. 
Unfortunately the distance limitation is not inherently within our unit, but with the choice of fiber you are using. Regardless of how strong we make the optics in the transmitter, the distance limitation residing within the multimode fiber core is the problem area that degredates your signal transmission.
EDFA will not help if you are using multimode fiber.

The right solution would be to use single mode fiber instead of multimode. Then, you will not even need EDFA for 500 meters. Please let me know if this is clear.
