The HDR1 can deliver up to six SMPTE 304M positions in a 1 RU space, or up to 12 positions in a 2 RU space, according to Gepco. Well suited for machine room patching of multiple camera positions to available CCU control units, the HDR1 offers a cross-connect or distribution system.

According to the company, each SMPTE 304M hybrid connector position of the HDR1 externally breaks out to separate ST fiber and electrical connectors on the rear of the chassis-a breakout format that reduces the need for the tools and labor required to directly terminate SMPTE 304M connectors. A new feature is that all positions are electrically isolated by nonconductive connector mounts on the front, while designation strips allow for custom labeling and identification. Available with SMPTE 304M plug or socket connectors, the HDR1 also now comes in a standard modular frame that allows configurations to be expanded up to six channels with optional expansion kit models.

"The HDR1 delivers our highest density solution for the patching and distribution of SMPTE hybrid fiber camera locations," said Scott Fehl, product marketing manager for Gepco and Isotec brands, in a statement.
