JVC Showcases PROHD KA-F790 Fiber Optic Transceiver Packages for GY-HM790U PROHD Camera at 2011 NAB Show

Press release date: Apr 11, 2011

WAYNE, NJ - JVC Professional Products Company and Telecast Fiber Systems will showcase the new CopperHead(TM) ProHD KA-F790 camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver at the 2011 NAB Show, which runs April 11-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. (Booth C4314). Built exclusively for the JVC GY-HM790U ProHD camera, it is the first CopperHead to provide a direct connection to a camcorder without requiring external cables. The system was introduced last year at IBC2010 in Amsterdam, but this is the first time the KA-F790 will be on display at NAB.

Using a hidden 68-pin connector on the back of the GY-HM790U, the compact KA-F790 attaches directly to the camera body to provide full studio functionality in the field. The multiplexing system simultaneously transports bidirectional digital (SDI or HD-SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera head and the remote CopperHead Base Station. The lightweight, 1 RU Base Station easily integrates into any studio, mobile truck, or portable flypack - and plugs directly into a facility's switcher, router, intercom, and house sync systems.
