Blackmagic - 'Studio Fiber Converter'

Blackmagic Design Studio Fiber Converter for broadcast production

Extend and Fully Power Cameras up to 2km awayThe Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter converts standard television industry connections with SDI video, audio and remote camera control connections into a single SMPTE optical fiber cable which connects to a Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and a remote camera up to 2km away. All video and data is transmitted using standard IP for extremely low latency broadcast quality video. With 12G-SDI for an HD or Ultra HD camera feed and 3 independent HD return feeds, along with standard connections for camera control, PT, two dual channel talkback intercoms, tracker talkback, tally and a 5-inch LCD screen for monitoring camera and return feeds. The Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter also provides power for your remote cameras and accessories.

Place Cameras Anywhere

Get Cameras much closer to the actionIf you’re working in a studio or out at a large sporting venue, you often need to place cameras far apart. While SDI connections are common, the limited range of SDI makes it hard to use it over long distances. Traditionally, you would need to run multiple cables and expensive extenders for power, talkback, tally, video and audio. This makes set up incredibly complex and increases the chances of a technical problem. Now you can solve this problem by converting all essential connections and power into a single convenient SMPTE fiber cable that can run incredibly long distances. That means cameras can be placed anywhere and connected back to broadcast trucks parked outside of a venue or back to a central control room in a studio. Best of all, SMPTE fiber is a global broadcast industry standard so you can use cables and connection points that are commonly available. Blackmagic fiber converters are also affordable, so traditional broadcasters, new web broadcasters, AV producers, houses of worship and educators can all use the same high end broadcast technology.

SMPTE Fiber for Industrial Strength and Safety

Built in multi layer fail safe instantly cuts power to eliminate dangerBlackmagic fiber converters work with standard SMPTE 311M hybrid electrical and fiber optic cables with standard SMPTE 304 connectors on each end. These cables feature a 2-way fiber pair, data pair and power pair, along with a central strength member that gives it the needed durability for continuous use. Once plugged in, the Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter automatically performs safety checks and then powers up, sending an industry standard 200 volts of power over the SMPTE cable for the camera and accessories. This means you can install cameras in remote locations without having to worry about power drops over long distances. Both the studio and camera converters at each end have dedicated micro controllers that continuously monitor power status. The converters communicate with each other to ensure that both a stable optical signal is present and that the power supply is operating within safe parameters. If a damaged cable or an earth leak is detected, the power is instantly shut down to eliminate any danger to personnel.

10G Ethernet for IP Video

Super fast, low latency ethernet link for video, audio and controlThe Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and the Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter use IP video because the SMPTE fiber connection is an open standard 10G Ethernet link. That means all of your video and return feeds are IP video based using high end, lossless broadcast quality 10-bit video encoding and decoding. All other connections such as talkback, tally, camera control and lens control are also converted to low latency IP so you get incredibly reliable performance and high quality. Using IP video means the Blackmagic fiber converters are future proof and ready for customization using high speed Ethernet infrastructure in future.

Blackmagic Camera Fiber ConverterThe Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter attaches to the back of your URSA Mini or URSA Broadcast camera. In addition to converting all of the audio, video, camera control and talkback into fiber, it also adds professional studio camera controls to the back of your camera. You get control for return feeds, dual intercom controls with the ability to mix in program audio, record, focus and iris controls, headset connectors, audio and more. The camera converter also includes a VLock mount plate on the top for attaching accessories such as a professional Blackmagic Studio Viewfinder. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter has connections for your Ultra HD camera feed, 3 HD return feeds, full remote camera control, PTZ, multiple channels of talkback, tally and more.

Blackmagic Studio Fiber ConverterThe Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter is used at the other end of your broadcast camera chain back in the studio or outside broadcast truck. It converts signals from the remote camera back into standard television industry connections that can be used with your live production switchers, audio mixers and talkback interfaces. It features a high capacity power supply to drive the cable so it can provide enough power for your camera and any accessories that you might add. The studio fiber converter includes connections for tally, two dual channel intercoms for industry standard 3rd party talkback systems, and even a backup engineering talkback channel in case the fiber goes down. You get a main Ultra HD camera feed plus 3 independent HD return feeds with full remote camera control, PTZ, tracker talkback and ethernet, all through a single SMPTE fiber cable. Plus, there is a large 5 inch LCD screen right next to the SMPTE fiber connection on the front panel for monitoring signals from the remote camera. This allows for easy patching and verification of the remote camera function.

Dual Channel Talkback

The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter and Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter provide 2 dual channel digital talkback connections that are compatible with professional 5 pin XLR talkback headsets. The camera converter even has convenient controls for mixing in program return audio with your talkback headset so you can adjust the volume as needed while talking to the rest of the crew. The talkback intercoms can be used for both production and engineering. In addition, there is a backup channel available for troubleshooting in case the fiber link is down. This backup talkback channel automatically switches over and uses the data pair in the SMPTE cable if the fiber is not working. The Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter also includes a standard 10 pin connection for tracker talkback, which is perfect when both headset connections are in use and you need to feed an additional talkback connection through to your crane operator.

Standard Television Industry Connections
