Telemetrics’ New Pan/Tilt Fiber System Adds to Production Efficiency
Cost Effective Transmission System Delivers Video, Power and Control
Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 7, 2012) – The recently introduced Pan/Tilt Fiber System from Telemetrics, on display here at IBC, provides video transmission, genlock and remote control capability for robotic P/T heads including the PT-RM-1, PT-CP-S4, PT-HP-S4 and PT-LP-S4 at distances of up to 10 kilometers.
The system supports a variety of transmission formats including Ethernet control, HD/SD SDI video, and genlock via duplex single-mode fiber optic cable with LC connectors. Single cable connectivity is also available using an opticalCon™ low voltage hybrid cable which additionally simplifies installation and increases reliability.*
"Our new Pan/Tilt Fiber System is designed to address a wider range of camera robotics production needs with efficiency and simplicity," said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President and General Manager, Telemetrics Inc. "Its flexibility and combination of features make it a robust, easy to install and use packaged solution for studio and field applications."
The system is designed with a rack-mountable base station and P/T head plug-in fiber modules/adapters – a single plug-in fiber module for the Telemetrics PT-RM-1 pan/tilt head and fiber adapters for the Telemetrics PT-CP-S4, PT-HP-S4 and PT-LP-S4 pan/tilt heads. The base station can house four fiber modules with each fiber module providing connectivity to one pan/tilt head, allowing the base station to serve up to four pan/tilt heads.
The Pan/Tilt Fiber System also permits the connection of duplex single-mode fiber optic cable, using standard optical LC-duplex connectors, with the opticalCON patch panel and low voltage hybrid cable from Neutrik, to support Ethernet control, HD/SD SDI video and genlock functions. In addition to the flexibility and cost effectiveness of the opticalCON low voltage hybrid cable, it also delivers up to 290W of power to the pan/tilt head.
