Announcing Camera Fiber Converter and Studio Fiber Converter

PostThu Feb 01, 2018 7:56 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced the all new Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter which convert standard television industry connections for video, audio, power, talkback, tally and more into a single SMPTE hybrid electrical and fiber optic cable. This allows cameras to be placed up to 2 km away from a studio or outside broadcast truck using a single cable. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter is available for US$2,995 and the Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter is available for US$2,995. Both fiber converters are available now from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide.

Whether it’s in a studio or out at a large sporting venue, customers working in live production often need to place their cameras both far away and close to the action. SDI connections are common, but they have limited range. Plus, when working in large theaters or massive stadiums, it can also be hard to find locations with power. Running multiple cables for power, talkback, tally, video and audio feeds normally requires expensive interfaces and extenders. This can make set up incredibly complex and increases the chances of a technical error.

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter solve this problem by converting all essential connections and full camera power into a single convenient SMPTE hybrid electrical and fiber optic cable that can be run long distances up to 2 km away. That means cameras can be placed anywhere and connected back to broadcast trucks parked outside of a venue or back to a central control room in a studio.
