Telecast Fiber release CopperHead DLV-3X1 fiber-optic multiplexer
Telecast Fiber Systems has released the new CopperHead DLV-3X1 camera-mounted fiber-optic multiplexer.
The DLV-3X1 converts four 1.5Gb/s data streams from copper to fiber, permitting transmission of uncompressed dual-link 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 HD-SDI data signals between the camera head and the camera control area over a single lightweight fiber-optic cable.
By replacing three or four coax cables, the DLV-3X1 not only reduces the bulk and weight of camera cabling, but also increases signal transmission distances from several hundred feet to as far as 9mi.
The CopperHead DLV-3X1 measures 3.7in x 5.5in x 1.75in and mounts between virtually any portable dual-link 4:4:4 camera and its battery. The four 1.5Gb/s signals from the camera, including A- and B-channel HD-SDI outputs and an HD-SDI output for viewing, are converted for fiber transmission over a single cable.
