Camera Corps Bring SIMPLY SMPTE Camera To 2013 NAB Show

Camera Corps has chosen the 2013 NAB Show in Las Vegas for the introduction of its SIMPLY SMPTE compact remote camera link to American broadcasters and digital cinematographers.
Demonstrated in prototype at IBC 2012 and now available via Camera Corps' international rental service, SIMPLY SMPTE will be exhibited as part of a complete system. This includes the Q-Ball family of compact all-weather remote pan/tilt/zoom/focus cameras, the 96-channel Multi-Camera Keypad, Standard and Mini Joystick Control units and the CCU-5 universal camera controller.
"SIMPLY SMPTE is designed for use at major large-scale outside broadcast events and in electronic field production," explains Laurie Frost, founder and Managing Director of Camera Corps. "Like all all our own-brand products, the link was developed to meet our production requirements in covering world-class events such as the 2012 summer games in London. We needed the ability to operate cameras with absolute reliability in all weather across distances of several miles, ideally sending control signals out to the camera and bringing the HD-SDI return feed back along a single cable. Like all out kit, it needed to be inherently strong and highly weather resistant."
"SIMPLY SMPTE consists of a robust base unit which connects to the controller plus a smaller remote unit which attaches to the camera," adds Technical Director Jim Daniels. "It allows allow large remote heads and boxed cameras to be operated 3 miles away or further via SMPTE 3K-standard electro-optical cable. The high power efficiency of Camera Corps' Q-Ball and Q-Ball Pre-Set robotic pan/tilt/zoom/focus cameras enables these to be controlled over even greater distances."
Powered by 110 or 240 volts alternating-current, the base unit incorporates an optical input for incoming video data. Electrical inputs allow direct connection of analog genlock video and audio-frequency control data. A loop-through connector is provided for the control data channel. Incoming video from the remote camera is accessible via two HD-SDI outputs.
The remote unit accepts HD-SDI from the camera and provides genlock, audio data, alternating-current power plus dual 12 volt direct-current 60 watt outputs on XLR4 sockets to drive auxiliary devices. Power from the base unit to the remote unit is fully isolated and protected against an open circuit or incompatible equipment.
Exhibiting in the Central Hall on booth C6032, Camera Corps will be represented at the 2013 NAB Show by Laurie Frost (Managing Director), Jim Daniels (Technical Director), Jeff White (Design & Development Engineer) and Neil Ashworth (Equipment Manager).
