Designed to handle news, sports, and other day-to-day remote interfacing needs with ease, the Live-LinkT Remote Camera Interface System offers a comprehensive fiber-optic-connected solution for transporting digital video, audio, intercom, and data between a remote camera location and a truck or control room. The point-to-point system consists of a portable Camera End Unit and either a portable or rack-ready Control Room Unit. Both use industry-standard connectors that are clearly labeled for fast, intuitive setup.
Live-Link provides two digital video paths in each direction that support the 3G/HD/SD-SDI SMPTEr-standards. In addition, the system provides connectivity for mic/line level signals, talent cueing, 2-channel party-line intercom, GPI/GPO, RS-232/RS-422 asynchronous data, and Gigabit Ethernet. A full complement of status LEDs simplifies monitoring and troubleshooting. Live-Link systems are suitable for remote production or permanent installation and can be powered by a DC supply or battery.
Live-Link is a reliable and convenient way of linking a production camera crew to an ENG or OB van, SNG vehicle, or production trailer. The system's portability and ease-of-deployment make it an ideal infrastructure solution for studio complexes, arenas, and campus environments. Live-Link units interconnect using two strands of single-mode fiber-optic cable and provide a transmission distance of at least 10 km (per SMPTE 297). Featuring the rugged opticalCONr DUO fiber-optic connectors from Neutrikr, units can also be ordered with ST optical connectors.
