Canobeam helps TV show overcome transmission challenges


Canon’s Canobeam DT-50/SDI Free Space Optics digital video transmission system provides secure, bi-directional wireless transmission for a wide variety of video signals at distances of up to 1.24 miles.
Wexler used Canon’s Canobeam digital video transmission system to help producers of “The Cut,” a new reality series on CBS.

When it found signals were hard to transmit around New York City, Wexler used a Canobeam DT-50/SDI free space optics digital video transmission system to provide full-bandwidth and bi-directional wireless transmission for a wide variety of video signals at distances of up to 1.24mi.

The producers of “The Cut” contacted Wexler’s Technical Engineering and Design department to help them transmit a video feed from a contestant’s house to the production office — over a block away in midtown Manhattan. Once they established a line-of-sight position, the Canobeam provided the signal strength and reliability they required. Wexler used a pair of Canobeam DT-50/SDI units that allowed digital transmission of multiple camera feeds — tied with synchronized digital audio and time-code — from building to building.

Because Canobeam uses a beam of light to transmit video it doesn’t require radio frequency allocation or licensing, which can be difficult in RF-heavy urban environments such as New York City. Data transmitted is secure and can’t be intercepted, and Canobeam’s proprietary auto-tracking function compensates for vibrations in the installation base due to traffic, wind and other factors.
