featured its newly released Cobra II triax-to-fiber camera interface at IBC2011. The Cobra II extends the industry’s newest digital triax-based camera chains using simple, inexpensive fiber-optic cable.
Initially supporting Sony’s new high-definition digital triax camera chains, such as the HXC-100K and HSC-300K, the Cobra II enables their use over durable, lightweight tactical fiber or within an installed fiber optic infrastructure. It is ideal for an installation around a building, across a campus or even 12.42mi across town using metropolitan “dark fiber.”
Using Telecast Fiber System’s TelePort 3G systems, several digital triax cameras can be “muxed” together onto a single pair of fibers, permitting new production options.
