Opinion: The smallest wireless transmitters

Canford is exhibiting in the familiar location of stand 9.C01 at IBC this year. Highlights include a preview of the upcoming Canford IP MDU’s, boasting some never seen before features and a sleek intuitive user interface. A small selection of Canford’s black boxes, cables, high quality panels, wall boxes and broadcast configured racks will also be on show. Fischer & Senko connectors and the Q5X, which is the world’s smallest wireless transmitters will also feature.

Canford’s all new IP addressable MDU (mains distribution unit) offers a wide range of consumer configurable features such as; MDU current (Amps) monitoring, MDU power monitoring (volts, amps, power factor & KW/hrs), per socket control (on, off, time delayed and sequential start up), per socket monitoring and environmental sensors (temperature and humidity).

The IP MDU’s will also feature simultaneous XML output; allowing easy integration into third party database/SQL software for automatic logging and data processing, automated alarms with thresholds for High/Low values of each monitored component can be sent via email and SNMP. Web browsing across multiple platforms, including iPads and other tablets is fully supported. One of the more unique features is the ability to control door locks remotely. This allows off site personnel to grant access to engineers or support teams on site to either server rooms or locked racks and cabinets. A demo model is on our stand to showcase the full range of features, which are crammed into this compact 1U package.

We are also showcasing our exclusive UK distribution deal for Fischer’s new rugged fibre connection range. Available in either two-fibre (FO2) or four-fibre (FO4) configurations; FiberOptic Series cables are suitable for point-to-point audio, data or camera-connection use in environments such as studio floors, touring, rental and outside broadcasts. The IP68 rated connectors retain the familiar push-pull connection system found on the

Fischer 1051 Triax HD Pro+ product range and offer the innovative feature of being simply cleaned by running under clean water or in a sonic bath.

The world’s smallest but hugely innovative Q5X broadcast quality audio transmitters are on the stand. The Q5X range are the first transmitters to be unobtrusive enough to be worn by professional athletes and actors. At roughly the size of two AA batteries they are easy to conceal and comfortable to wear. A fully submersible version is also available, further increasing versatility.

A selection of Canford’s high quality broadcast standard video and audio cable are on show, and our industry leading range of interconnection panels and stage boxes. All are manufactured in the UK and have the option to be supplied populated and screen printed to the customer’s design and specification.
