SMPTE Hybrid Alternative Connector Kit for Power Insertion


SMPTE Hybrid Alternative Connector Kit for Power Insertion The ShaxX System from Bluebell has been designed to provide power insertion for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 12G-SDI, 4K, 8K and HDR broadcast cameras fitted with Standard SMPTE 304M hybrid connectors, thus allowing them to be remotely powered over the hybrid cable. Power can be inserted and transferred to the remote camera which can be up to 300m away. When combined with the Shax-CCU, cameras can be remotely deployed using the ordinary singlemode optical fibre network that may exist within a stadium, campus or metro area. Shax-LITE is provided in compact footprint for the most cost-effective solutions. It is supplied in a “Multi Camera” version which is switch selectable between major camera manufacturers for easy deployment. ShaxX-LITE allows the user to replace the fibre/copper hybrid cable between the camera and the CCU with standard fibre cable and relay all the communications and signals. This frees the camera from being tethered to a local mains supply. The ShaxX-LITE can also be combined with the BC Series Multi-format Interfaces to carry signals from multiple cameras over a single cable. This can help reduce and simplify rigging and installation time. Contact the Sales Office for additional information on the available options. Front panel LEDs give instant operational feedback of the link status between each camera and CCU. The ShaxX-LITE is enclosed in a robust and ruggedised aluminium enclosure, ideally suited to Outside Broadcast and Fly Away applications. An optional rack mount panel also allows 2 Shax-LITEs to be mounted in standard 19” frames.
