Riedel’s new MediorNet Compact fiber base stage box integrates perfectly with the company’s Artist, RockNet, and modular MediorNet systems. It features optical fiber transport of 3G/HD/SD-SDI video, audio, data and intercom. The MediorNet Compact features integrated signal processing at every port—embedding/de-embedding, test pattern generators, onscreen display, frame store synchronizers, and timecode Insertion. The unit operates at a 50Gbps network bandwidth and supports any combination of network topologies. Its bandwidth is enough to support bi-directional transport of 12 HD-SDI signals, dozens of Ethernet or MADI streams, and hundreds of channels of audio or intercom.
The new 1T-CT-670 HDMI-over-fiber system from TV One allows the extension of HDMI signals using a single fiber-optic cable. The 1T-CT-670 consists of a 1T-CT-671 transmitter unit and a 1T-CT-672 receiver unit. Both units feature TV One’s locking power connector to ensure mechanical performance of the connection. The system is capable of transmitting HDMI 1.3 with HDCP and deep color at resolutions up to 1080p. Distribution distance of up to 1,000 meters is possible at 1080p resolution.
ZeeVee has launched two new additions to its HD video distribution lineup. The ZvBox 160 is an entry-level unit that is packed with features. It accepts component video at 720p, 480p, and 480i resolutions, and digital audio via S/PDIF and TOSLINK inputs. The ZvBox 160 provides 720p, 480p, or 480i MPEG-2 encoding modulated onto a digital cable (QAM) channel, which may be assigned to any empty channel in the CATV system. The unit also features a built-in spectrum analyzer to easily find empty channels. The ZvBox 180 adds onto the 160’s feature list. It also offers VGA video and USB audio inputs at rates up to 1080p in addition to the standard inputs of the 160. The ZvBox 180 also provides a modulated output at 1080i or 1080p in addition to the lower resolutions supported by the 160.
