The Norwia MiniHUB FR-1RU-8-2 frame.
At IBC, Norwia will introduce the MiniHUB FR-1RU-8-2, a dual layer frame that increases the density of the 1RU footprint. The new frame prioritizes SDI in one layer, with the remaining layer designed for IP or wavelength shifting, Ethernet or MADI distribution.
Norwia will also release a suite of IP products to aid the migration from SDI to IP. This will include an update to the RCONmini interface enabling both simple bi-directional conversion from SDI to IP via fiber as well as the multiplexing of up to 18 IP data streams into a single fiber stream. This update will also incorporate a standardization of SMPTE 2022-6 with upgrade paths to SMPTE 2110 and HDR.
Norwia said its SMC Camera Interface range will also be expanding to broaden manufacturer support to include Grass Valley and Panasonic cameras plus several other camera control units (CCU). The expansion will include a new version of the SMPTE media converters to transport camera based SMPTE signals from the camera to both OB trucks or over longer distances to studios.
When paired with the miniHUB optical transport platform, Norwia are able to simplify remote production by providing a full end-to-end optical solution.
Norwia said a new 10G electrical to optical solution for the miniHUB frame will be also shown. The 10G electrical Ethernet solution can be transported on Norwia’s range of 10G approved optics that include standard 1310 optics or CWDM optics for multiplexing.
The 10G electrical to optical converter provides a non-evasive way of handling 10G data circuits without interference to content while giving level optical signal measurements. The 10G solution form Norwia also provides bridging options from IT networks to broadcast networks while successfully transiting the demarcation of both networks.
