Long Cable Extension and Choice of Fiber Interface
Using a hybrid cable with a power supply, the distance between the camera head and CCU can be extended up to 600 m. In case of the combination with HXC-P70, it can extend up to 1,000 m. In addition to the Neutrik connector interface, a LEMO connector interface is also available for the camera head and CCU.
Long-distance transmission up to 10km with single-mode fibre cable In the case of connection with a single-mode fibre cable (SMF), transmission can extend up to 10km using a local power supply.
HD Video Trunk and HD Prompter
In addition to the camera captured 1080 50i/59.94i video signal, another video signal can be passed through the same fiber connection line to the CCU side because of the 3G-SDI platform. Further to the traditional analog composite prompter support, the HD-SDI signal can be supplied from the CCU side.
