News Image
Mi Broadcast is pleased to announce the delivery of an Ereca Stage Racer fibre optic signal transport system to Scorpio Broadcast Engineering.

The twelve 3G/HD-SDI system will form part of Scorpio's hire inventory and will be integrated into 4U flightcases to give easy access to Stage Racers multiple signal inputs and outputs.

Scorpio's Kevin Orwin commented: "Stage Racer provides all the signals required for outside broadcast in one box. I immediately saw the potential applications for hire customers."

Mi Broadcast was appointed Ereca's UK distributor following their meeting at IBC in September 2015, and introduced Stage Racer in October to a very positive response from customers.

Stage Racer is a flexible fibre optic signal transport for television broadcast applications.

Cost effective and easy to use, each 1U 19" frame carries a range of signals to support most events where a full broadcast connection is required between two locations.

It has the following comprehensive set of signals:

• 4, 8 or 12 video 3G/HD/SDI signals (direction configurable through built in web server)
• 1 bidirectional Composite Video (PAL Video/Black burst/Tri-level)
• 16 bi-directional analogue audio for intercom or broadcasting, optional 8Ch MIC/LINE
• 2 Ethernet 10/100/1000Mbs (1 Gigabit trunk with 2 VLANS)
• 4 Data RS 232/422/485, optional 12x RS 422
• 8 Contact closures
• 4 AES3 bidirectional (Riedel panel compatible)
• 1 bidirectional MADI (AES10) Signal (Shared with 2 of the 4 AES3 connectors).

Requiring just 2 singlemode fibres, with optional redundant fibre path, these units can be fitted with standard SCs, Lemo or Neutrik connectors with the option of remote powering.

An internal Web Browser allows the user to quickly change the direction of 3G/HD-SDI videos, control the level and phantom power on the optional Mic/Line card and access all the status of the unit. The front panel LEDs give signal presence and alarm display.

Stage Racer supports intercom panels from the leading matrix based intercom suppliers including Telex, Clearcom and Riedel.

Applications include: Remote Studio or Commentary Positions, interconnection between OB Vans or Studios, Video and Audio Stagebox, and links back to SNG Vehicles.
