Bluebell Opticom New Compact Camera Interface

IBC 2012 will see the launch of a new compact camera interface allowing HD-SDI to be used directly into a standard IP network environment.
The Net Caddie is a new compact camera interface using the revolutionary ìStagebox by BBC Research & Developmentî technology.
Net Caddie allows HD-SDI to be injected directly into a standard IP network environment.
Net Caddie transforms the entire cameraís bidirectional linear control, audio and video signals into packet based IP protocols, all on a single Cat6 cable to simplify workflows and rigging.
By using ìStagebox by BBC Research & Developmentî technology with 100MB/s AVC-I compression, the HD-SDI is converted and carried over the network in full broadcast quality video. This allows a remote camera to be used directly in the production environment.
Net Caddie provides video, audio and ancillary information over a time synchronous network.
Most importantly the system is completely synchronised providing an IP equivalent to a genlocked SDI system.
Timing and control is based on IEEE 1588 and the proposed SMPTE timing standard.
The system also allows remote connection of video sources, editing workstations and monitoring equipment.
The IP stream feeds directly into a workstation and can be viewed with many open standard software decoders.
Bluebell Opticom designs, manufactures and distributes high quality fibre optic transmission equipment for the broadcast, telecommunications and satellite industries.
