Telecast ships CopperHead fiber optic multiplexer with Neutrik connectors
Telecast Fiber Systems has begun shipping its CopperHead line of fiber-optic video systems with Neutrik's opticalCON optical fiber connectors.
The Neutrik connectors will enable Telecast to offer its customers broader connectivity across the CopperHead product range and even greater economies for mobile productions.
The CopperHead is a camera-mountable transceiver with the ability to multiplex all of a camcorder's input and output signals onto a single, durable, lightweight fiber optic cable. Going forward, the opticalCON connectors will be available for all models of the CopperHead. The CopperHead Infinity Digital Media Camcorder (DMC), a camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver for the Thomson Grass Valley Infinity camcorder, is the first product in the CopperHead line to ship with the opticalCON connectors.
