Clear-Com Presents the BroaMan Brand of Broadcast Video, Audio, Intercom and Data Transport

Clear-Com presented the BroaMan-brand of video, audio, intercom and data transport and routing solutions to the broadcast market at its NAB booth.

At the show, Clear-Com expanded its infrastructure franchise to include video signal distribution and routing networks using BroaMan technology.

“BroaMan is known for its masterful engineering of fiber-based media networks,” said Simon Browne, vp of product management at Clear-Com. “With their very low and deterministic latency, ability to handle many high bandwidth video signals and future-proofed for 4K video and beyond as well as future IP standards, Clear-Com is proud to partner with BroaMan in providing these video and audio solutions for studio and remote broadcast production.”

The BroaMan portfolio comprises four lines of product series for media conversion, routing and/or multiplexing. The MUX22 Series line transports video, audio, intercom and data on the duplex fiber infrastructure. Each 1RU device comes standard with a combination of 3G-SDI I/O and with Optocore and SANE digital audio networks to deliver an all-in-one solution.

The Repeat8-NANO Series are palm-size 3G-SDI or AES10-MADI signal media converters offered at an entry-level price. These high-performance devices are capable up to four 3G-SDI coaxial video inputs or outputs that are converted to/from single-mode optical fiber.

For additional signal conversion and multiplexing requirements, the rackmount Repeat48 line offers six times the capacity as the Repeat8-NANO. It features up to 12 dual modules, each converting 12G/3G-SDI to fiber or fiber to 12G/3G-SDI or up to six dual SFP modules for fiber to fiber, SFP to SFP.

The Route66 product family networks together BroaMan devices and select third-party products into a maximum 40 x 40 matrix in different combinations of I/Os.

For certain BroaMan devices, they can be centrally controlled with the Optocore Control Software. All BroaMan products comply with SMPTE fiber standards, therefore can be used with 3rd party equipment.
