Telecast’s CopperHead JT streamlines HD acquisition

Telecast Fiber Systems has developed a new a kit that allows the optical block of the Sony HDC-F950 HDCAM high-definition camera to be separated from its recorder while connected to the camera body via a fiber optic cable over distances of more than nine miles.

With this configuration, camera operators can control camera functions, recording full-bandwidth 4:4:4 HD signals, from a distance.

The CopperHead JT includes a compact housing that transforms the HDC-F950’s optical block into a 4:4:4 camera, equipped with a fiber optic transceiver. A transceiver is located at a remote location or production truck, where all video processing takes place.

In addition to transmitting the basic camera signals via the fiber optic link, the CopperHead JT transports a variety of other data, video, audio, and communication signals between the camera and the base station. Use of a fiber link rather than copper cabling also serves to eliminate all EMI, RFI, crosstalk, ground loops/hum, HF roll-off, and other noise that can affect signal quality.

The CopperHead JT is slated to be available for delivery in Q3 2005.
