Bittree to Celebrate Its 40th Anniversary at 2018 NAB Show

Bittree will celebrate its 40th anniversary at NAB by showcasing its video, audio and data patching solutions.

“The broadcast industry has undergone many transformational shifts since I moved from the music business to television in 1974, but many fundamental studio infrastructure challenges remain the same,” said Glenn Garrard, founder and CEO of Bittree. “Users still need reliable patching solutions that maximize signal integrity while allowing them to flexibly modify their signal paths.”

Bittree will show its 12G+ Mini-WECO Coaxial Video Patchbay and 12G+ BNC Coaxial Bulkhead Patch Panel for SD-SDI, HD-SDI, UHD-SDI, HDR, 4K and 8K single-link video applications. The 12G+ patching systems enables reliable handling of 4K over a single 12Gb/s cable, eliminating the cumbersome quad-link connectivity often used for 4K signal transport.

Ringing out at 24GHz and 20GHz, respectively, the future-friendly 12G+ Mini-WECO and BNC patching systems provide plenty of clean headroom not only for 4K, but also 8K, HDR and higher-bit rate applications.

Bittree’s ProStudio audio family will also be shown. Three models enable users to easily define and alter their audio signal flow while providing the cleanest sound possible.

Designed specifically for pairing with transportable 500 Series modular chassis, the front-programmable PS48DB25F offers 48 TT (bantam) connectors in a 2x24 desktop configuration, with DB25 rear connectors for interfacing with third party gear.

The front-programmable, 96-connector PS96DB25F offers the same benefits in a 2x48, 1.5RU rackmount form factor, while the internally-configurable PS96DB25i combines the ProStudio line’s advantages with 96 TT (bantam) connections in just 1RU of rack space.

Bittree’s high-density, modular keystone data panels now include fiber optic and copper data connectivity. Accommodating inserts with up to a 17mm pitch, the space-friendly 1RU panels deliver the industry’s highest keystone density by offering 24 connections in a single, non-staggered row.
