DFT-12 Series by Joseph Fiber Solutions
The DFT-12 EXP and DFT-12JR fiber transport systems are making their debut at IBC2014. Requiring only 2 RU, each features 12 paths of 3G/HD-SDI and ASI signals over one or two fibers. Additionally, modules for AES or analog audio, MADI, 1 Gb Ethernet, RTS intercom, POV interface (genlock and video), or data can be fitted into the four available expansion slots to provide a complete signal transport solution for remote announce booths or split feeds. More modules are in development.

All signal paths for any unit in the DFT Series are user-configurable in pairs of two in order to meet any send/receive requirements, and redundant power supplies are standard to ensure a complete backup of critical paths. Full-fiber redundancy with automatic fail-safe switchover is available as an option for all DFT Series frames.

Camera Tote by Joseph Fiber Solutions
The JFS Camera Tote system offers a new option that enables quicker operator deployment of point-to-point communications. Built into an industry-standard Pelican enclosure, the compact Camera Tote system provides water-resistant protection of field electronics in the harsh environments encountered by news and field crews. An internal filtered fan ensures that extreme temperatures will not be a factor when the system is used in exposed locations.

The system's standard signal complement includes 4x4 3G/HD-SDI, 4x4 analog audio, 1 Gb Ethernet, and wet intercom. The unit is also available in a 2-RU rack-mount model for permanent installation. Fiber options include Lemo, ST, OpticalCon Quad, or MX. When four fiber connectors are used, two units can be daisy-chained for multicamera applications.
