NAB Preview: Telecast Fiber Systems Joins 3D Party
The hottest topic this year is 3D, and Telecast Fiber Systems will hit it head on at NAB 2010 with a demonstration of its new 3D capabilities. Using Telecast technology, 3D-camera engineers have devised a system that enables the controlling electronics to be decoupled from the camera lenses. Connected by a fiber link, the lenses can be deployed far away from the electronics for difficult shots, such as undersea scenes, and can be controlled independently of each other to create the highly realistic, stereoscopic 3D effects that are rapidly transforming both the film and television markets.
Also making its NAB debut is Telecast’s patent-pending TeleCube Modular Media Interface (MMI) family of 3G transmitter and receiver modules. Developed specifically for OEM applications, the TeleCube MMI system offers broadcasters a highly flexible, cost-effective I/O solution for distribution of HD/SDI signals via fiber optics as well as copper cable. Combining such features as lasers, detectors, EQ, line drivers, and receivers in a compact, integrated package, each TeleCube MMI module allows a single I/O port to be configured as an input or output for either fiber or copper. By simply plugging a TeleCube onto any FPGA-based device, engineers can instantly configure the device for 3-Gbps optical or electrical input and/or output.
Telecast will also have the CopperHead 3000 Series on display. The newest addition to the family of camera-mountable fiber-optic camera transceivers provides a single fiber-optic link between any professional camera or camcorder and the broadcaster’s truck or control room. It is designed to handle all vital camera signals and can be configured for specific applications, such as ENG or multi-camera use. All Mobile Video will be demonstrating the system in its new HD Tapeless Carrypack production system at Telecast’s booth.
