SCamp increases SMPTE hybrid camera cable range

The Telecast Fiber Systems SCamp SMPTE cable amplifier allows broadcasters to extend the operating distance of their SMPTE fiber-equipped cameras from Sony and Ikegami.

A fiber-optic repeater for SMPTE 311M hybrid fiber/wire cable systems, SCamp is similar in concept to triaxial repeaters. The SCamp is a bidirectional optical repeater that can be inserted in-line at virtually any point mid-path in the hybrid cable run.

The unit is powered directly by the camera’s base station via the hybrid cable and displays the received optical power levels in both directions with an easy-to-read LED bar-graph display.
