Bluebell Opticom Ltd., provider of innovative fibre optic solutions for fixed and remote applications, today announced the Caddie-LB 4K, a pair of throw-down boxes that connects the latest 4K cameras to camera control units (CCU) over long distances using fibre.
The Caddie-LB 4K saves rigging time and reduces complexity for remote camera crews working from an outside broadcast (OB) truck or a live-event venue such as a concert hall, and allows the crews to position the camera farther from the CCU and remote panel.

The BN366 is designed for the cost-effective transport of 4K UHD signals over fibre. Based on field-proven technology, the compact unit provides the transport of 4 x 3G-SDI signals over a dual fibre link.
The BN366 4K-UHD field-deployable fibre links for use in outside broadcast (OB) applications. Part of Bluebell’s BlueNano range of compact fibre optic interfaces, the BN366 is designed to transport 4K UHD signals cost-effectively over fibre or to convert output from up to four separate HD cameras. In this way, the BN366 helps OB crews to minimize the use of heavy copper cabling and take advantage of fibre’s inherent pristine signal quality over long distances. Click to read more.
Bluebell Opticom Ltd., provider of innovative fibre optic solutions for fixed and remote applications, has introduced the BC364 card. Part of Bluebell’s BC Series of rack-based modular fibre interfaces, the BC364 is a compact rack-mountable multiformat converter for use with a wide range of broadcast video and audio signals. When paired with Bluebell’s ShaxX line of SMPTE hybrid alternative connector kits for broadcast camera systems, the BC364 can multiplex multiple camera links over a single dark fibre.

ShaxX SMPTE Hybrid Cable Alternative With Power Insertion for Broadcast Cameras
Bluebell Opticom Ltd., provider of innovative fibre-optic solutions for fixed and remote applications, today announced the ShaxX, a rugged system designed to provide full bi-directional signalling and power for broadcast cameras fitted with standard SMPTE 304M hybrid connectors. The ShaxX allows outside broadcast and remote production crews to forgo SMPTE hybrid cables and take advantage of preinstalled fibre networks on location in order to cut rigging time and position cameras freely wherever they are needed, regardless of distance or the location of mains power sources.

The BC364 is a compact, rack-based multiformat converter for use with a wide range of broadcast video and audio signals. The BC364 provides a base unit that comprises input and output SFP cages.
With different SFP converter modules, users can adapt the functionality of the unit to suit different applications. Signal input and output formats are defined by selecting appropriate standard SFPs that can perform optical and/or electrical format conversions.
The BC364 card offers a range of options including distribution, format conversion, monitoring, and wavelength management including CWDM. Such a wide range of functionality allows the BC364 to act as a “toolkit” for systems engineers as well as a high-quality converter for any fixed installation.
Multiformat SFPs can convert to and from composite, HDMI, DVI, optical, and 3G-SDI. Units can also be used to regenerate optical signals from multimode to singlemode, repeat optical signals, or re-map wavelengths within existing fibre systems. Click to view product.
The BN623 is the latest addition to the Bluebell BlueNano range of compact fibre optic interfaces providing bidirectional analogue audio and serial control data over fibre.
The BN623 is specifically designed to link remote panels in an intercom system back to the main central routing position.
The robust design allows the unit to be deployed in OB or flypack applications.
The BN623 can be supplied in multimode, singlemode, and CWDM variations to suit all applications, offering a perfect complement to the BC323, BC550, and BC323-63 modules.
Power can be supplied direct to the unit from the standard Bluebell PS12 or any readily available DC supply found on-site.
A complimentary modular BC Series card is also available when a 19” rack-based solution is required.
