Optical fiber conversion system

In addition to the ability to transmit all signals such as camera images, return signals, various control signals, etc. up to 2km with a single alive optical fiber cable, it has realized a powerful power supply capability.

This is a simple and low-cost optical fiber transmission system for broadcasting and business that strongly supports studios, broadcast sites, and event recording.

A system camera tool that enables multi-camera recording of an ENG dedicated camcorder with HD-SDI / SDI output. A camcorder is utilized to the maximum according to the usage situation, and a low-cost and high-quality coverage system is constructed.

Multi functions, high performance and high reliability

It was developed based on more than 10 years of experiences and achievements since PROTECH started developing optical fiber conversion systems. A well-known photographer and an engineer with a lot of experiences in camera photography participated in the development, and many design team members came out with this knowledge. We focused on each parts, and considered a sense of security at the field.

Send and receive up to 2km with one cable

The optical fiber camera adaptor can send HD-SDI or SD-SDI signals and intercom signals, and the center station can send and receive camera power, intercom, tally, return, and genlock signals. The cable can be extended up to 2km. HD-SDI (SD-SDI) signal output is equipped with two systems, strengthening the SDI system compatibility.

 

Long-distance transmission with low loss

The cable can be extended up to 2km. Transmits HD-SDI or SD-SDI signals from the camera with almost no signal degradation due to cable extension. (May vary depending on usage conditions such as when there are many cable joints.)

Built-in return/tally function

By attaching HDF-700 / 500 viewfinder, you can check the return/tally signal.

 

Low cost optical fiber cable

Up to 2km operation is possible by connecting the optical fiber camera adaptor and the center station with an alive cable.

The alive cable is not only cheaper than the conventional 26-pin multi-cable, but also allows the alive cables to be connected without joint parts, making cable installation in the field easy.* If you want a LEMO type other than the standard type of optical fiber connector, please specify when ordering.

Powerful power supply

 

 

The power supplied to the camera adaptor can be supplied up to 2km from the center station. DC power (*) up to approx. 75W can be used. A low-power camcorder can be used with a return LCD monitor and camlight.

* When the 2km cable is extended, the available power on the camera side is approximately 75W (12V). Note that the usable power of the camera cable may vary depending on the usage conditions. It may not be possible to use if the system status, temperature status, or camera startup current is large.

Synchronization by time code is possible

The time code signal can be transmitted in both directions. With this function, it is possible to synchronize the time code in each camera, and it is possible to build a multi-camera system unique to camcorders.

 

Return connection to sepcific viewer with VF interface unit

By using the VF interface unit, it is possible to check the tally and return video with a camera manufacturer’s genuine VF, and the same usability as a normal studio camera can be realized. (Please contact us for camcorders that can be connected.)

* VF interface units are available for Sony camcorders and Panasonic camcorders.
* VF interface units for BC camcorders other than Sony XDCAM-HD “PDW-F355 / F350” are made to order.

Remote control connection possible

Remote controller and LANC remote controller made by Sony / Panasonic / Ikegami Tsushinki can be connected, and not only basic functions such as lens iris, camera white balance, gain, but also gamma, black level, detail remote control is also possible. (Control items differ depending on the camera to be connected. LANC can transmit a mode that can be used by connecting the remote control directly to the camera. Please specify the camera manufacturer when ordering.)

AC/DC drive possible

In addition to AC drive, shoulder camera adaptors and optical fiber base units can be driven by batteries (12V type / 14.4V type) in consideration of field operation. The low power consumption design enables long-time operation and allows use in an environment where AC cannot be obtained.

 

Powerful power supply

The power supplied to the camera adaptor can be supplied up to 2km from the center station. DC power (*) up to approx. 75W can be used. A low-power camcorder can be used with a return LCD monitor and camlight.
* When the 2km cable is extended, the available power on the camera side is approximately 75W (12V). Note that the usable power of the camera cable may vary depending on the usage conditions. It may not be possible to use if the system status, temperature status, or camera startup current is large.

 

Camera adaptor PS-470HD can always be installed

Cables that tend to be complicated can be wired neatly. By simply removing the multi-connector cable and attaching a battery to the back of the optical fiber camera adaptor PS-470HD series, you can immediately use it as an ENG camcorder.

 

Equipped PROTECH intercom system

Equipped with PROTECH’s BNC connection intercom technology, you can easily construct an intercom system.

VF inter face unit

By using the VF interface unit, it is possible to check the tally and return video with the VF of the target camcorder, and the same usability as a normal studio camera can be realized.

* VF interface units for BC camcorders other than Sony XDCAM-HD “PDW-F355 / F350” are BTO. * The VF interface unit is available for Sony camcorders and Panasonic camcorders.

 

Compatible HD-SDI/SDI multi camera shooting

Multi camera recording is supported by using a camcorder with HD-SDI signal output. The HD-SDI transmission line also supports SD-SDI signals, enables SD-SDI system construction.

 

Real-time display of system status

The optical fiber camera adaptor and center station are equipped with a link monitor display function that indicates whether HD-SDI signals are being sent correctly from the optical fiber camera adaptor to the center station. You can check the situation at a glance.

 

AC/DC drive (PS-470HD/570HD)

In addition to AC operation, the shoulder camera adaptor and center station can be driven by a battery (12V type / 14.4V type) in consideration of field operation. The low power consumption design enables long-time operation and allows use in an environment where AC cannot be obtained.

* When you operate camera adaptor with DC, only one intercom headset can be used.

 

Compatible remote connection from various brands

Sony / Panasonic remote control can be connected, and not only basic functions such as lens iris, camera white balance, and gain, but also remote control such as gamma, black level, and detail. (The control items vary depending on the connected camera.)

 

Synchronization by time code is possible

The remote control and time code compatible models can transmit time code signals in both directions. With this function, it is possible to synchronize the time code in each camera, and it is possible to build a multi-camera system unique to camcorders.
