2009 NAB Show Preview
Telecast Fiber Systems — Booth SU 8517
Previewed at IBC 2008 and now shipping, the new CopperHead INF camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver for the Thomson Grass Valley Infinity camcorder enables use of the Infinity as both a camcorder and an HD-SDI multi-cam production camera. The compact CopperHead INF fits between the Infinity camcorder and its battery, delivering bidirectional HD-SDI, composite video, audio, intercom, genlock, and camera control between the Infinity camera head and the remote base station over a single lightweight, battlefield-rated fiber optic cable. Optionally, remote powering of the camera is possible using SMPTE hybrid fiber cable. The 1-RU base station integrates easily into any studio, mobile truck, or portable flypack and plugs directly into the facility’s switcher, router, intercom, and house sync systems. In addition, the CopperHead INF system permits “iso-recording” on each Infinity camcorder’s internal REV-PRO drive during multi-camera productions, allowing for additional post-production editing without the need for expensive studio-style recorders.
Viper Mini-Mussel Shell Series
Telecast’s new “Mini-Mussels” are universal enclosures for a series of modules that can be mixed and matched to provide highly customized, portable fiber optic solutions. Mussels come in single-, two-, or four-module sizes and have the features that customers have come to rely on such as integral optical power metering, informative system LED indicators, and an assortment of powering options.
In response to the growing interest in 3-D HD production, Telecast has adapted its HDX hybrid elimination device to accommodate stereoscopic camera systems from Sony and Ikegami. Using local power, the HDX-3D provides power and optical connectivity to two camera heads making 3-D acquisition easier than ever. The new HDX also supports HD cameras from Thomson and Panasonic.
