Telethon Transmitter/Receiver/Teleport System
The new Telethon transceiver system is a hybrid device featuring the functionality of Telecast’s Python II series of transmitters and receivers in combination with the CWDM wavelength management functionality of the company’s Teleport system. The Telethon unit accepts both optical and electrical digital signals, ranging from 19.4 Mbps up to 1.5 Gbps uncompressed HD/SDI, and multiplexes them for transmission in either or both directions, with up to 16 optical signals on one fiber, significantly increasing fiber capacity. The Telethon is interoperable with most other Telecast products.
Adder II Series Featuring Adder II BoothPak
The successor to the widely used Adder 162 and 322, this new front-of-house/announce booth Adder is a single-box solution for larger point-to-point audio applications. Featuring factory-configurable modules, the new Adder II BoothPak handles analog audio and digital AES audio while converting between them. It features an integrated signal generator and analyzer, plus facilities for data, intercom, and optical redundancy.
The next-generation G2 CopperHead camera-mounted transceivers are modular and available in, and convertible to, several configurations, including 40-pin SDI, 50-pin HD/SDI, component/composite analog ENG, and digital “cine,” through a simple change of input/output mounting “sleds.” Certain models include signal-processing capabilities from Miranda Technologies in a compact camera-mounted adaptor that connects directly between the camera and its battery.
Viper II 6000 Series
Telecast is launching its 6000 Series RoHS-compliant Viper II modules, power supplies and frames. The new modules are intended for analog video, with two or four analog audio channels plus data (TX6122); SDI/HD-SDI transport (TX6292); bidirectional SDI/HD-SDI transport (TR6292); dual-stream HD (TX6372); and SDI plus dual AES (TX6269). The 6000 Series also includes a new reclocking HD/SDI distribution amplifier (DA6040).
Enhanced HDX Unit for SHED Cable Elimination System
Telecast’s popular SMPTE Hybrid Elimination Device (SHED) adapter features a redesigned HDX camera power unit that offers more operational information about camera signal and power status. With new options, including optical metering and remote camera power command, the HDX unit makes it easier for crews to maintain and manage their HD camera systems.
