Previewed at IBC2009, Telecast Fiber System’s new patent-pending TeleCube Modular Media Interface (MMI) family of 3G transmitter and receiver modules is making its North American debut at HD World.
Developed specifically for OEM applications, the TeleCube MMI system offers broadcasters a highly flexible, cost-effective I/O solution for distribution of HD-SDI signals via fiber optics as well as copper cable. Combining a number of features such as lasers, detectors, EQ, and state-of-the-art line drivers and receivers in a compact, integrated package, each TeleCube MMI module allows a single I/O port to be configured as an input or output for either fiber or copper. Simply by plugging a TeleCube onto any FPGA-based device, engineers can instantly configure the device for 3Gbps optical or electrical input and/or output. Thus, for a range of applications including HD monitors and displays, switchers and routers, cameras, and modular DAs, the TeleCube modules help lower engineering design costs and improve time-to-market for broadcast engineering solutions.
Also on display at HD World, the CopperHead 3000 Series is the newest addition to Telecast Fiber Systems’ patented CopperHead family of camera-mountable fiber optic camera transceivers.
The CopperHead 3000 Series has been crafted to offer a cost-effective solution for a variety of applications and users, and will provide a single fiber optic link between any professional camera or camcorder and the broadcaster’s truck, control room, or “video village” position. Representing the best of Telecast’s award-winning fiber optic technologies, the CopperHead 3000 is designed to handle all vital camera signals and can be configured for specific applications such as ENG or multicamera use.
