Canon Canobeam DT-150 HD aids in New Year’s Eve coverage

Bexel Broadcast Services used the Canon Canobeam DT-150 HD video transceiver atop a Manhattan office building to relay live TV images of more than 1 million New Year’s Eve revelers in Times Square to a second Canobeam DT-150 HD at street level.

From there, the historic HD bird’s-eye view was transmitted to TV audiences around the world. The Canobeam DT-150 HD video transceiver provides reliable bidirectional, uncompressed 1.5Gb/s transmission of embedded digital HD video, audio and camera-control signals on a single HD-SDI stream with no delay. Using a line-of-sight beam of infrared light to transmit wide-bandwidth data or digital HD video and audio, the Canobeam DT-150 requires no frequency licensing or coordination. Bexel Broadcast Services supplied and integrated the Canon Canobeam DT-150 HD video transceivers used in the telecast.

The Canobeam DT-150 can relay embedded HD-SDI and SD-SDI video from multiple cameras or other HD/SD video sources, along with embedded return video and audio to the camera operator, camera-control signals and even robotic camera-control data.
