BlueLite Camera Crane Fibre Links 3G-SDI, Data, Audio, Genlockpdf

The BlueLite is a new compact camera interface designed for use with popular compact and portable camera cranes and jibs. A mixture of video and audio signals are combined to provide a flexible and cost effective solution for many production applications.

Each unit is supplied in a rugged unit suitable for the rigours of repeated rigging and de-rigging.

The 3G-SDI signals are fully SMPTE compliant and pass all pathological signals for optimal signal performance and minimal jitter and eye pattern degradation.
A genlock signal also provides the ability to lock remote cameras to a central reference.

BlueLite is a particularly cost effective solution for 3D camera applications.

Fibre connectivity is via singlemode Neutrik Optical CON DUO as standard.

The Base end can also be replaced with a combination of cards from the BC Series range should a 19” rack based solution be required for a truck or CAR.
