Neutrik announces the launch of a revolutionary fiber optic camera routing system at IBC 2011.

The opticamSWITCH is the ultimate solution for fiber optic camera routing within broadcast studios. The device allows switching of unlimited camera positions between several studios and control rooms, eliminating the need for high-maintenance, risky matrix patch fields using SMPTE patch cables. The device works on trendsetting, silica-based PLC (planar lightwave circuits) equipped with TO (thermooptic) switches. The innovative and patent pending design guarantees rugged and safe non-blocking fiber plus camera power switching without any moving parts. The LAN-based remote control software simplifies work, shows switching and camera status, and enables broadcast production automation.
