Camplex Has Introduced New Tactical Reel System

Camplex has debuted a new signal extender and tactical reel system for the rapid deployment and extension of 3G-SDI video over fiber for outside broadcast and live event productions.

Camplex’s CMX-TACNGO-3GTR system consists of a fiber optic mini 3GHD/SDI converter/extender system fitted to a cable reel with 1000-feet of ST tactical fiber optic cable. It is designed to run camera signals to a production switcher or production switcher output to playout.

Camplex said the fiber converter extends a 3G-SDI signal supporting 1080p@60Hz and can carry SDI or SD signals when a monitoring solution is required. For monitoring purposes, the system receiver features optical signal indicators, power indicators, and link indicators that display system status of operation.
