Camera-Mounted Fiber Optic Transceiver Offers Affordable Solution Organizations Projecting High-Quality HD Images

CopperHead Pro - Camera Unit and Base station for I-MAG applications.

The CopperHead Pro directly addresses these requirements with a solution that is specifically tailored to the I-MAG market, at a price that is affordable for any production team.

At IBC2010, Telecast Fiber Systems will unveil the CopperHead™ Pro, a camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver specifically designed for high-definition (HD) image magnification (I-MAG) applications in houses of worship, music venues, and corporate events. The CopperHead Pro offers a versatile and affordable solution that leverages the light weight, high reliability, and superior quality of fiber cable for projecting high-quality HD images.

“Until now, churches and many other types of A/V venues have not been able to take advantage of camera-mounted fiber optic solutions for I-MAG, because the cost has been prohibitive. At the same time, audience expectations for high-quality projected video have increased, along with the quality of HD projectors and displays,” said Jim Hurwitz, director of product management for Telecast Fiber Systems. “The CopperHead Pro directly addresses these requirements with a solution that is specifically tailored to the I-MAG market, at a price that is affordable for any production team.”

The compact CopperHead Pro camera unit sandwiches instantly between any HD/SDI video camera and a professional battery system such as Anton-Bauer® or "V"-Mount, transporting uncompressed HD video signals from the camera to the control room via either tactical fiber or hybrid SMPTE cable. The system provides complete camera control as well as full bi-directional intercom and tally -- all of the signals the producer and crew need for the highest-quality image magnification in venues ranging from the smallest church to the largest arena or stadium.

All CopperHead systems are available directly from Telecast Fiber Systems, or via a network of authorized CopperHead dealers. For a demonstration of the CopperHead Pro visit Telecast Fiber Systems at IBC2010, stand 10.B39.
