New 55D-CAU Coax/Fiber Link System


Telemetrics Adds High Speed Data Transmission Capability
To Coax/Fiber Link Camera Control System

Las Vegas, NV (April 11, 2011) – Telemetrics Inc. is displaying its upgraded Coax/Fiber Link Camera Control System here at NAB 2011. The new 55D-CAU Coax/Fiber Link system enables camera control for distances up to 3,000 feet on RG-11U cable between the base station and camera location. It’s a highly affordable and efficient camera control system to easily and conveniently transmit standard or HD/SD SDI video from a camera location to a head-end without signal degradation.

55D-CAU.png“Our new coax/fiber link camera adapter accommodates the latest generation of field cameras on the market that require high speed data transmission,” said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President and General Manager, Telemetrics, Inc. “With the 55D-CAU
system, field cameras can be located at much greater distances from their control centers with greater freedom of movement to follow and capture the action.”

The 55D-CAU Coax/Fiber Link system is ideally suited for both permanently installed and mobile applications. The system uses frequency multiplexing to transmit composite video from the camera and external video, genlock and power to the camera. Also transmitted is microphone audio from the camera, auxiliary audio to camera and, intercom to and from the camera and tally.

The single cable (RG-11U) connection between base station and camera adapter eliminates the need for multiple cables, video equalizers, frame synchronizers, intercom adapters, microphone phantom power and remote power supplies. For the HD fiber link option, transmission can be through a hybrid coax/fiber cable or a separate fiber optic cable running alongside the main coax cable. HD/SD SDI video from the camera is converted into an optical signal at the camera adapter, transmitted over the cable and converted back to electrical signal at the HD Fiber Link base station.

“The 55D system is a convenient and cost effective means of transmitting HD video between the camera and the base station utilizing standard fiber and coax cable,” added Mr. Cuomo. “With this longer distance capability, Telemetrics is enhancing broadcasters’ ability to create and deliver more engaging content.”
