Gepco International has introduced the 4.5in. single-channel Hybrid Fiber Breakout Box, a portable, SMPTE 304M hybrid fiber-to-ST breakout box in a reduced footprint. Each hybrid connector breaks out to two ST female connectors on a recessed, protective metal top plate with optional electrical connectors.

The breakout of the hybrid connector to discrete, industry-standard optical and electrical components allows for an HD camera-to-CCU interconnection over existing fiber tie-lines in facilities where hybrid fiber interconnects may not be present. Additionally, the Hybrid Fiber Breakout Box can be used for Lemo-terminated hybrid fiber cables to standard ST fiber connectors.

“As HD becomes the standard for television transmission, facilities need products that allow them to easily incorporate HD into their existing technologies,” explains Scott Fehl, Gepco’s director of marketing. “Our hybrid fiber breakout box allows for the transmission of HD signals to be seamlessly integrated into current interconnect setups.”

All optical components feature machine-polished ceramic ferules and ceramic sleeves for superior optical alignment and low loss. The rugged chassis is constructed from heavy-gauge anodized aluminum for use in remote production environments. The breakout box also features replaceable fiber jumpers and metal dust caps.

In addition to the standard configuration, Gepco’s 4.5in. HBB breakout box is also available with XLR or five-pin AMP connectors that are hard-wired to the power and/or signal components of the SMPTE hybrid connectors.
