LEMO Demonstrates their Long Distance High-Speed Rugged Connection Solutions

Press release date: Apr 20, 2009

Rohnert Park, California - LEMO (www.lemo.com), a global leader in the design and manufacture of precision custom connection solutions, will be demonstrating their latest connection solutions for both the field (harsh environments) and the studio in Booth #C7433 during NAB, Las Vegas, April 20-23, 2009. This mix of products includes their 3K.93C HDTV Connection System (SMPTE compatible), Digital Media Converters, Portable Fusion Splicing, Cable Assemblies and Fiber Optic Maintenance, Inspection & Cleaning Tools.

They will be highlighting their partnership with 3SAE Technologies, Inc., whose expertise is in developing and marketing new fiber optic tools and technologies for optical fiber fusion splicing and related products. They provide the tools that allow LEMO to offer field-termination using the proven fusion-splice technology inside the connector shell. Field repair of SMPTE cable assemblies will be faster and more cost effective due to the elimination of field polishing.

LEMO will also be demonstrating a wide variety of electrical and fiber optic connector solutions for both studio and harsh field environments as well as audio visual connectors for microphones and hearing devices. For copper broadcast solutions, LEMO continues to offer its wide range of high-performance, high-quality triax connectors that the new media converter can be connected to. The LEMO media converter makes it possible to send TV signals long distance over fiber optic cable, even when the camera is fitted with a triax connector. Coupled with the LEMO 3K.93C connection system, the media converter allows SD television transmission over much longer distances and higher levels of definition. The LEMO 3K.93C hybrid connector has a compact design with two single-mode fiber contacts, two power contacts and two signal contacts for HD camera interconnection systems. The LEMO 3K.93C is fully AINSI/SMPTE (USA), ARIB (Japan) and EBU (Europe) compliant.

To complete the connection solution, LEMO also offers off-the-shelf cable assemblies in various standard lengths, with cable splice boxes for truck and studio racks, as well as a number of fiber optic kits for cleaning and inspection of the fiber connection systems. LEMO will be running a promotion on these cable assemblies during the show. Stop by to learn more about LEMO products and a chance to win a Video I-POD.
