Bexel To Demonstrate Clarity 800 At NAB

News Image
Bexel has announced that it will showcase the Clarity 800 at NAB 2017, Booth C6025. The custom-built camera is a miniature, high-frame-rate point-of-view camera for live production.

The Clarity 800 camera system has been designed to meet increasing demand for real-time HFR video by sports and event producers. It offers HFR processing in HD up to 8x (480 fps) and 1080p and can handle all video formats, including 1080i and 720p. The camera delivers complete functionality in a form factor that is 4.7 inches high, 2.56 inches wide, and 1 inch thick.

Easily integrating into a live event workflow, the Clarity 800 operates as a broadcast camera system with real-time processing via fiber optics and integration with industry-standard video servers. Features include a full-function camera remote control panel for paint control of the camera and a positive-lock lens mount with lens control of focus, iris, and zoom motors.

Elsewhere at NAB, Bexel ESS will highlight over 15 years of expertise in RF and wireless system design, touching phases of frequency coordination, equipment selection, system design, integration, and training. The company's line of Managed Antenna System (MAS) products provides a solution for wide-area coverage of low-power wireless devices, extending the usefulness of transmitters and receivers for on-air talent cueing, on-air talent microphones, and crew communication for both live events and permanent installations.

On display will be an example of Bexel's RF audio solution developed with Quantum5X. Intended as player and coach mics for a variety of sports applications, the QT-5100 PlayerMic is a rubberized, flexible player microphone system. It has been field-tested by the NBA and can be wirelessly controlled to adjust frequency, mic gain, RF power level, mode, and grouping.

With the growing need to accommodate 4K and its requirements for increased bandwidth and 12G support, Bexel has invested in fiber-optic equipment. At NAB, Bexel will demonstrate its newly-built Fiber Mini Booth Kit, a solution for interfacing an announce booth with audio, video, intercom, and IFB equipment to connect with a mobile unit up to 3,000 feet away without signal degradation – all over six strands of single-mode "tactical" fiber-optic cabling.

The Mini Booth Kit gives productions the ability to send and receive 12 bidirectional video paths (six each way), 16 audio paths (eight microphones, eight intercoms), four IFB channels, and an optional robotic camera interface with Ethernet control. The Fiber Mini Booth Kit is user-friendly and can be moved around and set up within minutes, making it ideal for smaller productions with only a single on-site technical manager to set up the various fiber paths.

Craig Schiller, Senior Vice President Global Sales, Bexel, said: "At the 2017 NAB Show, attendees will see why Bexel remains on the forward edge of innovation in production services and engineering for broadcasters' demanding and evolving requirements. A great example is our brand-new Clarity 800 camera, developed in direct response to customer demand for a high-speed, POV camera with HFR and the real-time processing needed for live sports. And our Fiber Mini Booth Kit demonstrates Bexel's ongoing technology leadership in fiber-optic solutions."
