Camera Switch, 8 x 4 channels, 19'' 1.5RU, Wieland terminals
The opticamSWITCH is the ultimate solution for fiber optic camera routing within broadcast studios. The device allows switching of unlimited camera positions between several studios and control rooms, eliminating the need for high-maintenance, risky matrix patch fields using SMPTE patch cables.
The camera switch works on trendsetting, silica-based PLC (planar lightwave circuits) equipped with TO (thermooptic) switches. The innovative and patent pending design guarantees rugged and safe non-blocking fiber plus camera power switching without any moving parts. The LAN-based remote control software simplifies work, shows switching and camera status, and enables broadcast production automation.
Neutrik’s application engineers plan and optimize each opticamSWITCH setup together with our customers in consideration of existing equipment and work flow behavior of the broadcast or production studio. The modularity of the system offers highest project flexibility and ease future expansions, moreover it avoids the loss of all camera signals at the same time.
