Nemal Contributes PAL-to-NTSC Triax Adapters to World Cup
Worked with TV Globo
MIAMI—To provide camera interconnectivity for the
World Cup in Rio de Janeiro this month, the major Brazilian broadcast
networks called upon Nemal do Brasil to develop a rugged and between the
European PAL and Brazilian NTSC standards.
The Nemal design team, led by Danny Ritts in the Miami office, together with
Maximo Medina in the Sao Paulo office, worked with TV Globo engineering to
develop the optimum combination of performance, durability, and size. Under
very tight time constraints, our engineering, production and logistics staff
worked overtime to ensure that the product arrived in Rio ahead of schedule.
The Nemal PAL-NTSC adapter series features a machined aluminum body containing
the PAL interface connector with a 3 meter pigtail of 13mm triax, terminated in
a NTSC connector. The adapters are available in two
versions, male PA- to-female NTSC, and
female PAL-to-male NTSC.
