PACKAGES FOR GY-HM790U
PROHD CAMERA AT 2011 NAB SHOW
NJ (April 11, 2011)
Professional Products Company and
Telecast Fiber Systems will showcase the new CopperHead™ ProHD
KA-F790 camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver at
the 2011 NAB Show, which runs April 11-14 at the Las Vegas
Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. (Booth C4314).
Built exclusively for the JVC GY-HM790U ProHD camera, it is the
first CopperHead to provide a direct connection to a camcorder
without requiring external cables. The
system was introduced last year at IBC2010 in Amsterdam, but this is
the first time the KA-F790
will be on display at NAB.
- Using a hidden 68-pin connector on the back
of the GY-HM790U, the compact KA-F790 attaches directly to the
body to provide full studio
functionality in the field. The multiplexing system simultaneously
transports bidirectional digital (SDI or HD-SDI) and analog (NTSC or
PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video,
data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between
the camera head and the remote CopperHead Base Station. The
lightweight, 1 RU Base Station easily integrates into any studio,
mobile truck, or portable flypack – and plugs directly
into a facility's switcher, router, intercom, and house sync
- “With a customized
module that fits directly on the camera, the
GY-HM790U users the convenience of fiber on location in an elegant
and reliable solution,” said Lon Mass, vice president of sales and
marketing, JVC Professional Products Company.
- The KA-F790 is available in six
configurations to address specific customer applications, including
fiber cable, hybrid (powered) cable with SMPTE or OpticalCON
connectors, and a choice of RTS or Clear-Com intercom modules.
Systems are priced from $11,995 and are available now.
