Camera Corps To Introduce Compact SMPTE 3K Remote Link at NAB 2012

Camera Corps' new SMPTE 3K Remote Link, to be introduced at NAB 2012 in Las Vegas, allows any remotely controlled system in the company's product range to be operated over long distance via SMPTE 3K-standard hybrid electrical/optical cable.
"The SMPTE 3K Remote Link was developed for use at large-scale outside broadcast events requiring long camera-to-base distances," states Camera Corps' Technical Director Jim Daniels. "It allows many of our large remote heads and boxed cameras to be operated over 5 kilometers or more while maintaining the security and reliability of a dedicated link. Because of their relatively low power requirement, our Q-Ball and Q-Ball Pre-Set systems can be operated over more than 8 kilometers. The physical footprint is very small relative to other systems of comparable versatility."
The SMPTE 3K link consists of a base unit and remote unit. Powered by 110 or 240 volts AC, the 303 x 165 x 65 millimeter 3.63 kilogram base unit has an optical input for incoming video data. Electrical inputs allow direct connection of analog genlock video and audio-frequency control data. A loopthrough connector is provided for the control data channel. Incoming video from the remote camera is accessible via two HD-SDI outputs.
The 226 x 106 x 56 millimeter 1 kilogram remote unit accepts HD-SDI from the camera and provides genlock, audio data and AC power plus dual 12 volt DC 60 watt outputs on XLR4 sockets for auxiliary equipment. The link can also convey 240 volts to maintain power headroom. Power from the base unit to the remote unit is fully isolated and protected against an open circuit or incompatible equipment.
Exhibiting on Booth C9046 (Central Hall), Camera Corps will be represented at NAB 2012 by Laurie Frost (Managing Director), Jim Daniels (Technical Director), Jeff White (Design & Development Engineer), Tim Reynolds (Sales & Project Coordinator, Neil Ashworth (Applications Engineer) and colleagues from US reseller Bexel.
