"It's a pleasure for us to host Telecast in our booth at BVE because we never hesitate to recommend Telecast solutions for broadcast and production of high-visibility events," said Robert Mackman, managing director, Mi Broadcast. "Telecast equipment is unique in its ability to carry signals over long distances from remote positions, maintain image quality, and enable production crews to retain critical camera control and functionality."

CopperHead™ 3200 Camera-Mounted Transceiver

The CopperHead™ 3200 offers an affordable yet powerful multicasting solution for a range of HD broadcasting applications. Both units deliver uncompressed HD video and simultaneously transport bidirectional digital (SDI or HD/SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera and the base station.

TelePort™ Multichannel CWDM Management System

Telecast Fiber Systems will have the TelePort™ CWDM (coarse wavelength division multiplexing) wavelength manager on display at BVE. When integrated with the TelePort, Telecast products provide easy high-bandwidth multiplexing for as many as 32 digital signals on just two single-mode fibers. The TelePort also eliminates the need for wavelength-specific spares, as any transport device in the 1300-nm and 1550-nm wavelength windows can be plugged into any channel of the unit.

TeleThon™ Multichannel Wavelength Manager and HD/SDI Transport

Telecast Fiber Systems will display the TeleThon™ optical and electrical multiplexer system, a hybrid device featuring the CWDM (coarse wavelength division multiplexing) wavelength management functionality of the company's TelePort™ system with the high density of the Python II™ digital video transceiver system. The TeleThon unit accepts electrical digital signals, ranging from 19.4Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s uncompressed HD/SDI and optical signals of up to 2.5Gb/s each, and multiplexes them for transmission in either or both directions. Up to 16 optical signals can be accommodated on one fiber, significantly increasing fiber capacity. The CWDM capability of the TeleThon system simplifies and multiplies the effectiveness of fiber optic cables, reducing operator costs and improving overall signal transmission capacity.
