Lemo putting broadcast converters in the spotlight8 February 2012
Lemo will be demonstrating the full range of broadcast converters at BVE, including the innovative new HD Z-link camera back, HD triax connectors and SMPTE HD fibre connectors and cable assemblies.
The new HD Z-Link fibre optic camera link system provides multi-channel system video and audio connections, and control for studio cameras and camcorders alike over a single hybrid cable using the Lemo 3K.93C connectors. The use of high bandwidth fibre optics and the multiplexing of the numerous forward and return video, audio, talkback and data channels provides full communication with any camera position.
The dual 1.5Gbps HD SDI option allows support of stereoscopic (3D) implementations of the Red One (and other cameras). The HD Z-Link is able to carry 3Gbps HD SDI, which gives it a competitive advantage over the 2.5Gbps products that do not support 1080p.
