The Tactical Fiber Camlink enables long distance runs of tactical fiber cable to cameras and NDI converters of up to 1,000 feet using camera power and longer distances with battery power.
Tactical Fiber will debut two new fiber based transmission systems for cameras equipped with built-in NDI or NDI Converters. Using the new system, a camera can send NDI/IP signals and receive 20 watts of DC power up to 1,000 feet away from the video village over hybrid tactical fiber cable.
Connectivity up to 15 miles using non-powered “dry” fiber cable can also be achieved with self-powered cameras.
“We developed the IP Fiber CamLink systems for sports and event producers who want to use NDI equipped cameras at venues where cable lengths typically exceed the 300-foot practical limit for CAT5 cable,” said Rich Rubin, TFS’s president. “Our IP Fiber CamLink systems enable virtually unlimited connectivity between NDI equipped cameras and the studio.”
The system with camera power includes a CamLink PLUS 1 RU rack-mount base unit which handles up to four PLUS Camera Units. This unit receives NDI encoded video and provides DC power for up to four additional camera Units and NDI accessories.
It is equipped with four IP fiber media converters and four DC power supplies for connection to four independent CamLink Camera Units. I/O on the CamLink base unit includes four hybrid fiber sockets for connection to four CamLink Camera Units over tactical fiber cable and four CAT5 outputs for connection to the NDI/IP component (switcher) at the video village.
