At IBC, BHV Broadcast will show a new version of Video Ghost, its technology that replaces power supplies or batteries.
BHV Broadcast said Video Ghost dx, the company’s latest version, is the video equivalent of phantom power for audio. It runs serial digital (SD/HD/3G) video and DC power in one standard coaxial cable removing the need for batteries or local AC power sources.
Video Ghost dx offers the benefit of a bi-directional data link for a wide range of control functions, such as camera, PTZ, video source switching and video monitor control.
