Slate v7.1
Broadcast Pix

Software upgrade activates an optional DVI/VGA I/O card on all Slate HD models to provide up to two DVI/VGA I/Os; enables control of Panasonic robotic cameras and enhancements to the system's built-in multiview monitor; provides luma key support; adds support for external video with key inputs from external graphics systems; provides up to four copies of each output and three of each input for display on a Slate system with multiple monitors attached.


Large-matrix (288 × 576) digital multiformat router offers same advanced functionality as the NV8576 but in a smaller footprint for midsize broadcasters; features multiformat routing (3Gb/s, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES), N-on-1 redundant crosspoint protection for zero downtime, linear expansion technology and signal integrity over coaxial cable or optical; Plus version has a 288 × 288 matrix that expands to 576 × 576 within two frames.


Rubber cover protects connectors in the unmated condition, including Neutrik two- and four-pole speakON chassis and powerCON chassis connectors; covers unused inputs, helping to avoid any confusion or missed wiring during setup.


Package includes ElipZ 10K battery, ElightZ on-camera light and EgripZ camera support; battery delivers all-day operation for a typical 10W handheld camera; under-camera mounting design allows one face to quickly attach to the camera through a shoe-type mount; 6V on-camera light draws 10W and features a two-stage, adjustable arm; camera support attaches easily to any camera as well as other supports with a 1/4-20 mounting screw below.

QFX Quadbox

Copper-to-fiber conversion modules provide increased port density; are part of the QFX fiber extender series; support up to four SDI, HD-SDI or 3G-SDI signals using a 3Gb/s optical transport per fiber port; offer broadcast-quality coax-to-fiber transmission paths in a single box or 1RU setup using two SFP duplex small form factor pluggable modules; compliant with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 372M and 424M.


HD compact POV camera and solid-state recorder combination; the camera's design separates its head from the control unit/recorder; gives users more flexibility to capture shots in video applications where increased mobility is required beyond the use of traditional handheld or shoulder-mount cameras; records up to six hours of HD content onto a 16GB Memory Stick; offers full 1920 × 1080 resolution; features Sony's ClearVid CMOS sensor system enhanced by Exmor technology.

Newscaster DR 2

Diversity receiver features a split box design; receives UHF digital signals in the 150MHz to 850MHz band; works with external block downconverters and can be supplied with those that can receive frequencies of 1.99GHz to 7.1GHz; receives up to four RF inputs from the external block downconverter, allowing for the use of four high-gain sector antennas; includes an integrated COFDM demodulator, an MPEG-2 HD/SD decoder, internal power supply, integrated spectrum analyzer and on-screen display.

MiniBlox 4262A/4262D
ISIS Group

Audio de-embedders automatically determine whether a digital input signal is 3G, HD or SD-SDI and then output broadcast-quality analog or digital audio; 4262A dual stereo analog de-embedder extracts two balanced stereo analog audio pairs from any group in data space of a 3G/HD/SD data stream; provides analog outputs; employs high-quality 24-bit DACs; features adjustable, full-scale output levels to meet international standards; 4262D quad AES de-embedder extracts four AES streams from data space of 3G/HD/SD data stream; provides AES outputs; can extract audio from any two embedded groups.


Version six of the VOD server features a new family of streaming accelerators; offers a total streaming capacity of up to 16Gb/s; each video server unit is now able to record more than 200 TV channels, which can be time-shifted to a large number of subscribers; allows farms of NDVR servers to be stacked to deliver additional streaming performance; integration into existing architectures can be achieved either through ISA/ADI interfaces for cable networks or by interfacing with Thomson's SmartVision CDN via Web services.


Handheld display probe helps prevent contaminated fiber; gives technicians handling optical fiber a dedicated microscope for patch-cord inspections while providing a probe microscope to inspect the bulkhead connector port; the combination of the two microscopes makes it unnecessary to change inspection tips on the probe; features a 1.8in TFT LCD screen; comes standard with the GripSwitch power saver mode.


Fluid head's payload reaches 8.8lb; well-suited for users of HDV cameras; features an aluminum housing, three-step damping and five-step counterbalance; incorporates Sachtler's SpeedBalance technology, enabling fast, precise handling; has an integrated flat base fitting; interfaces with tripods with 75mm bowls.

TV One

HDMI test generator verifies correct operation of audio and video when working with HD or PC displays; can test any device using HDMI, PC or DVI-D inputs using several different types of signals; supports PC resolutions up to WUXGA/60 and HD resolutions up to 1080p; embeds either a 1kHz internally generated audio sine wave or externally generated audio signal into digital bit stream to verify HDMI audio; can test HDCP functionality to verify video, audio and security components.

IconMaster 3.0

Master control switcher is fully configurable between SD and HD formats; enables control of Harris CENTRIO multiviewers and Platinum routers over Ethernet; by coupling IconMaster with CENTRIO, the master control operator can control the multiviewer directly from the master control switcher; drives under-monitor display and tally information to CENTRIO; drives picture-in-picture source changes when different router inputs are assigned to IconMaster inputs; provides internal and external control over branding.

Low-voltage camera/single-mode hybrid cable

Addition to opticalCON preterminated cable offering is optimized for camera link systems (ENG/SNG), camera adapter systems, camera cranes and powered downconverter boxes for broadcast applications where only extra low voltage is required; opticalCON range of cables also includes rugged hybrid, robust and lightweight mobile field cables with two single- or multimode fibers, a four-pole Y split and an SMPTE cable.

Ross Video

Compact production switchers are designed for mobile or space-constrained production environments; are available in four configurations; the CrossOver 6 supports six multidefinition inputs and two keyers, and has six source selection buttons; the CrossOver 12 supports 12 multidefinition inputs and three keyers, and has 10 selection buttons and a rugged positioner; the CrossOver SD versions offer a similar capability to the HD versions; all feature an industry-standard user interface, UltraChrome chroma keyer, dual animation stores, two 2-D DVEs, four up/downconverters, a downconverted analog program output, three SDI outputs and three AUX outputs.
