The new DVBETA DV media converter for digibeta equipment offers embedded SDI audio and is designed for transcoding Betacam/SX to DV. Features include bidirectional conversion of DV-SDI-DV with AES/EBU embedded audio at 48kHz, NTSC-720x480, PAL-720x576, digital (DVITC) and analog (VITC) time code support via BNC connectors, RS422 machine control and FireWire IEEE-1394 connectors.

Also new this year is the PhatCat, which sends video, audio and camera control from broadcast cameras up to 1,500 feet over standard CAT5 cable. Complete Transmit and Receive Systems are available for 26-Pin and 14-Pin multipin cameras.
