Fibre Connectivity for Cameras
FIBRE FOR CAMERAS
With the demand for bandwidth when using UHD (ultra high definition) Cameras increasing, the limited range afforded by copper can be overcome by converting the signal to fibre.
The advantages of this are multiple, not only can you transmit the signal many kilometres, it is significantly thinner and lighter than its copper equivalent. this advantage is evident when longer lengths are required. For example when filming on location the high definition video signal may need to travel several hundred metres back to the OB, Satellite or Production Truck. Putting this length of copper cable onto a portable reel is not possible.
There are several product types that enable you to connect to fibre, from add-on video to fibre optic converters, to integrated systems with direct fibre optic interfaces such as the Blackmagic Design ATEM Studio & Camera Converter which supports connectivity up to 20km. More recently too, some cameras come with a direct fibre connectivity, for example the Black Magic Studio Camera.
Universal Networks have developed and stock a range of fibre connectivity solutions for the Broadcast and Audio Visual industry,
from our 2 core IP Rated Armourlux Solutions in the form of IP-PRO2 and LC-MAX, to the Multi-fibre Push On solutions using MTP® Connectors for multi channel fibres in a single compact 12, 24 or 48 core cable.
All of our portable deployable ranges have been designed for quick deployment and re-use both in studios and the field.
