Lemo Showed HD Z-Link Fiber Optic Camera Link at 2016 NAB

Lemo said its new HD Z-Link fiber system provides multi-channel video and audio connections and control for studio cameras and camcorders over a single hybrid cable using Lemo’s 3K.93C connectors.

Lemo said the use of high bandwidth fiber optics and the multiplexing of numerous forward and return video, audio, talkback and data channels provide full communication with any camera position.

Lemo’s media converters make it possible to send TV signals long distance over fiber optic cable, even when the camera is fitted with a Triax connector. Coupled with the Lemo 3K.93C connection system, the media converter allows HD television transmission over much longer distances and higher levels of definition.
