RENT / EVERTZ ECAS - fiber optic ccu's

Tax excluded

The  Evertz  Camera  Adapter  system  provides  a  versatile  fiber-optic  enabled

accessory to Sony HDW-F900(R) and XDCAM-HD High Definition camcorders.

There are three components to the system; each linked via fiber optic cable.

When  the  fiber  enabled  HD  camera  adapters  are  connected  to  the  ECB-HD  base

station  the  camera  video  is  transported  to  the  base  over  fiber  

and  broken  out  to HDSDI  video  with  embedded  audio  and  time  code,  

analog  or  AES  audio,  LTC, NTSC/PAL,  SDI  and  IEEE1394A  downconverted  video  with  time  code.  

The  base station has inputs for return HD/SDI, NTSC/PAL, 4 channels of analog or AES audio,

genlock,  time  code  and  IFB.  The  fiber  also  transports  bi-directional  RTS  intercom,

camera remote control (with view finder menus), and contact closure tallies. 

When the Camera power option is installed in the base station (-CP versions), the

base station can send DC power over a hybrid copper/fiber optic cable to the camera adapter.  

This  DC  voltage  is  converted  to  battery  voltage  by  the  ECA-PS  power module,

which mounts on the camera adapter in place of a battery.

When power is sent  down  the  hybrid  cable,  the  camera  and  accessories  can  be  powered  at  a

distance up to 2km.
