Joseph Electronics’ Tote Caddie series of portable fiber-optic signal acquisition systems for broadcast applications will be shown at the 2017 NAB Show.
Joseph said Tote Caddies offers a better option for fast, operator-deployed, point-to-point signal transport. Built using Pelican cases, each Tote Caddie is a compact, functional and weather-resistant fiber solution for news and field crews working in harsh environments.
The Totes Caddies have 12 modules available that can be mixed and matched in nearly unlimited combinations to provide the exact signal count necessary for a given application.
At the 2017 NAB Show, Joseph will introduce the Caddie Transporter series, a new family of customizable fiber transporter caddies for use in remote-broadcasting applications. The Caddie Transporter series provides up to 18 signals of 3G/HD/SDI uncompressed video plus four additional slots that can be fitted with a selection of other modules for audio, intercom, analog video, genlock, MADI and Dante.
Each Caddie Transporter serves as a plug-and-play system for sending multiple video and audio signals over a single fiber. Built to be housed in a 5-RU setting, one end of the system is stationed in the studio, sending signals to the other unit in the control room. Also, a bypass channel allows users to add more A/V data signals in either direction.
Joseph will also show its DFT-JR Compact HD Video Transport Solution. It’s a compact system for sending HD video over fiber. It can transmit up to 16 channels of uncompressed 3G/HD/SDI video on one or two single-mode fibers, depending on configuration.
Housed in a 1-RU fanless enclosure with redundant power supplies, the DFT-JR can support up to eight two-channel modules to handle as many as 16 signals. Users can easily change the direction of each two-channel module in the field to accommodate last-minute changes.
It also has a bypass channel, making it possible to add more analog video, audio or RS data transport signals. With the two-fiber version, users can also add Gigabit Ethernet signals.
