Swiss broadcaster tpc streamlines OB camera operations

July 25, 2006

Swiss broadcaster tv production center Zürich (tpc), a comprehensive media production facility, has equipped its HD-1 outside broadcast truck with 10 sets of Telecast Fiber Systems SHED (SMPTE hybrid elimination devices) and HDX adapters for its Sony HDC1500 cameras.

The SHED-HDX units replace the bulky SMPTE hybrid fiber/wire cables. The cameras are designed to accept lightweight, standard single-mode fiber, allowing up to 10 times the range of hybrid cable with only 10 percent of the weight. Telecast dealer WIRA Optics integrated the systems.

Telecast's SHED solution consists of two small adapters — one at the camera and another at the base station — that convert camera signals from hybrid wire/fiber cables to standard all-fiber cables and back again. These adapters allow the camera and base station to communicate on two ordinary single-mode fibers while maintaining a pure optical path.
