The Nipros LS-850GT 4K+X Fiber Optic Base Station can simultaneously receive 4K + 2K or up to five HD (3G) camera channels from the LS-750GT camera adapter (available separately) over a single fiber optic cable. The system is designed for professional operation in tough live conditions. The five video inputs are flexible enough to support five independent (asynchronous) HD signals at any mix of video frame rates for POV applications such as a live concert or a hospital operating room. In addition, any data from any SDI signal can be transmitted without data elimination, preserving even the metadata in the SDI ancillary data; 2048 x 1080 resolution SDI data can also be transmitted.
The system is equipped with a specially developed powering scheme that enables it to provide 300W of power to the camera and its accessories over an industry standard SMPTE-311 fiber optic cable. Thus, the system is capable of powering nearly any 4K camera, including super slow motion cameras that have higher power requirements than conventional professional video cameras. The extra power permits the use of a Clearcom belt pack at either end of the system.
The base station provides all essential inputs/outputs needed to support 35mm 4K systems and offers remote ports for Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Ikegami cameras to simplify system integration and eliminate the need for custom cabling. A LAN interface is also provided for remote control of the camera. The system transmits all essential camera signals optically via an SMPTE-311 interface, ensuring high-quality video and audio with minimal signal degradation.
Five HD-SDI/3G-SDI Down Streams & One Upstream Transmission
4K + HD or up to five HD of 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals can be transmitted simultaneously
Signals are transmitted independently, without the need for Genlock and uniformity of the signal format
Hub for Nipros 4K+X fiber optic camera adapters
Provides all essential inputs/outputs needed to support 35mm 4K systems in a 3RU size, making it suitable for applications with space constraints
Supports control of all major camera parameters
Transmission of All Data in Any SDI Format
Any data from any SDI signal can be transmitted without data elimination
This is very important as there is a variety of metadata in the SDI ancillary area
2048 x 1080 resolution SDI data can also be transmitted
Transmission Distance up to 1.2 miles
With the LS-750/850GT combination, 300W of power can be supplied up to a distance of 1.2 mi (2km) via an SMPTE-311 fiber optic cable between the base station and the camera adapter
Please note that the power consumption/current load of cameras differs between makes & models. Power does decrease over longer cable runs; however, 200W is still possible at a distance of 1640' (500m).
Uses an advanced power supply specifically designed for the Nipros fiber optic systems
High-Output Power Supply
Yields high-power output over a hybrid fiber system that is capable of powering nearly any 4K camera, including super slow motion cameras that have higher power requirements than conventional professional video cameras
High power output can also be used to power accessories at the camera location
Signal Transmission and Signal Status Indicator
SDI signals that are sent via the LS system can be transmitted individually or synchronized as can Genlock, so it is possible to mix any transmitted SDI signal
Status of each signal being transmitted is displayed via an LED indicator on both the LS base station and the camera adapter, allowing instant checking of signals
Displays connection status of critical connections via a display window
Camera Remote Control
Most serial communication remote controls can be transmitted through the LS-850GT to the LS-750GT
Offers remote ports for Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Ikegami cameras to simplify system integration and eliminate the need for custom cabling (a single remote port is used at a time; an optional modification allows for two remote ports to operate simultaneously)
Intercom (ENG and Production)
Two lines of intercom communication: ENG and PROD
Allows connection to other broadcasting facilities via two or four wire systems
LAN (IP Communication) Function
LAN (RJ-45) interface is also available
Allows you to control cameras and accessories through IP 100Base-TX directly from LS-850GT base station to LS-750GT camera adapter
Bi-Directional TC (Timecode)
Bi-Directional TC transmission enables each camera's recorder to be fully synchronized with the same timecode
This feature is useful when using an external recording accessory connected to the camera adapter
LS-850GT Dual Signal Output
Features dual BNC outputs, so signal can be connected to two different devices, e.g., a switcher and monitor
Simple Tally Function
Each tally signal received from a switcher can be connected to the LS-850GT base station
A simple close contact type tally signal can be shown as a red tally, whereas as a composite type tally signal can be shown in both red and green (5V: RED / 3V: GREEN)
Broadcast Intercom System
The pass through communication line between the LS-750GT and LS-850GT enables the use of a broadcast type belt-pack intercom system
This feature allows intercom use at both ends of the transmission system
Simple Menu-Free Setup
The LS-750 and LS-850 form a plug-and-play, easy to setup system
It has no complicated setup menu, just connect a signal and transmit
Clean Digital Signal Output
Outputs broadcast quality transmission signals
Special Re-Clock Circuit for Constant High-Quality Signal
Re-clock circuit protects the base station output signals from interruptions such as those caused by long BNC cables
Re-clock circuit effectively cleans transmission signal, preventing any packet loss
