Telecast To Highlight CopperHead 3000 Camera-Mounted Transceivers at HD World 2010
At HD World 2010, Telecast will show the CopperHead 3000 Series is the newest addition to Telecast Fiber Systems’ patented CopperHead family of camera-mountable fiber optic transceivers, providing a single fiber optic link between any professional camera or camcorder and the broadcaster’s truck, control room, or “video village” position. The CopperHead 3000 Series can handle all vital camera signals and can be configured for specific applications such as ENG or multicamera use.
Telecast will show the CopperHead 3050 — specifically designed to meet the requirements of ENG and SNG — as well as the CopperHead 3200, which offers an affordable multicasting solution for a range of HD broadcasting applications. Both systems deliver uncompressed HD video and simultaneously transport bidirectional digital (SDI or HD/SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera and the base station.
The CopperHead 3400, the first CopperHead designed for dual-camera 3D rigs, provides transport of two HD camera signals to the control room or truck with full control of the cameras as well as the 3D rig’s motor system, all over a thin, lightweight fiber optic cable. The system is equally at home on cameras at live 3D sporting events and scripted 3D film and television productions.
HD POV Robotic Links — In New Mini-Mussel Field Enclosures
Telecast will have a new family of HD/POV links for robotic cameras on display that delivers the functionality of the company’s original HD/POV solutions, plus the option of Ethernet control, enclosed in small, ruggedized housings at a lower price.
The next generation of Telecast’s Viper family of fiber optic production systems, the new Mini-Mussel Shell provides a portable and compact universal enclosure for the company’s new line of “T-Block” Viper function modules. Mini-Mussel Shells can be mixed and matched to provide highly customized, portable solutions for electronic field production. Each Mini-Mussel has all of the typical Viper features, including integral optical power metering, informative system LED indicators, and an assortment of powering options.
At HD World 2010, Telecast will demonstrate fiber optic technology that powers the 3D cameras used in many of today’s major motion pictures and live events. One such solution is the CopperHead 3400.
