BroaMan made a debut at IBC2012, and they are returning to the show this September where they will unveil several new products. BroaMan is extending its Intercom range further with a new IC444 SDI device, complete with video sync: the SDI-INTERCOM. It will also show the Repeat48 WDM.
The SDI-INTERCOM (pictured) is aimed at OB vans, with features including 4 Line In; 4 Line Out; 4 GPI (with Optocoupler) and 4 GPO (with relays). It also supports up to eight 3G/HD-SDI inputs or outputs, has built-in CWDM and contains auxiliary fibre ports for an Optocore network (or third party fibre protocols).
The Repeat48 WDM unit converts up to 24 SDI or MADI coaxial signals to optical fibre, with CWDM or DWDM multiplexer. It can be used as a P2P decentralised network unit to run multiple video channels over single fibre strand between two locations or as part of a bigger network to work as a stagebox for more complex routing systems.
Further features of the unit include up to 24 3G/HD-SDI inputs or outputs; modular design with 2-channel boards; built-in CWDM or DWDM multiplexer; 16 fibre ports for WDM COM connections as well as Optocore or third party fibre protocols (e.g. 1Gb Ethernet).
BroaMan will be presenting a live demonstrations of its new software and routing control at IBC2013.
