Nipros to Debut New Fiber Optic Camera System at NAB

The new Nipros LS-750/GT camera-mounted fiber adapter system, which works with any 4K camera, will get its debut at NAB.

The LS-750/GT camera-mounted fiber adapter system provides users with five 3G SDI downstreams directly out of the camera, as well as one return of 3G/HD-SDI/SD-SDI signals. All types of 4K plus HD, or five separate HD streams, can be transported simultaneously, with the ability to mix the five asynchronous 3G/HD/SD streams independently.Nipros Systemized Camera System

Also debuting at NAB is Samaserve, the exclusive North and South American sales and support company for the Nipros line of camera-agnostic systems and accessories. All Nipros products are designed and manufactured by Nippon Video Systems Co. Ltd. of Japan.

“The Nipros System empowers users to maximize the potential of any camera and, for any type of shooting situation,” said Bob Ott, a former top executive at Sony and a Samaserve co-founder. “With optical and multi-core camera adapters, viewfinders, camera sleds, mounting plates, shoulder camcorder mounting accessories and audio mixers, Nipros covers a tremendous range of production needs.”

The Nipros LS-750/GT camera-mounted fiber adapter system passes simultaneous uncompressed 4K and HD signals. It provides users with five 3G SDI downstreams directly out of the camera, as well as one return of 3G/HD-SDI/SD-SDI signals. All types of 4K plus HD, or five separate HD streams, can be transported simultaneously, with the ability to mix the five asynchronous 3G/HD/SD streams independently

The fiber adapter also offers active loop-through output for each 3G-SDI input; the ability to transmit complete SDI signal payloads, including embedded audio as well as all ancillary data; tally (green and red) signal transmission; time code (TC) Input/Output; two lines of intercom (PROD & ENG); full two-way camera RCP remote control; LANC remote control; LAN (Ethernet) IP communication link (100Base-TX); HD-SDI/SD-SDI & VBS/HD-Y return video transmission; and high capacity power supply capability for the camera plus accessories.

The optical fiber conversion system also enables signals to be transported (from camera to OB truck and/or from cameras to studio control room) up to 1.2 miles with 60W power or more than 650 feet with a 300W power supply over standard SMPTE 311M hybrid optical fiber cable.

The LS-750/850GT fiber adapter system was designed to be completely flexible with all camera manufacturers.

Also being shown is the Nipros HDS 300 Camera Sled, a professional studio build-up rig designed to quickly convert most compact handheld or shoulder type camcorders from Canon, Panasonic, Phantom (Vision Research), JVC, Hitachi, Ikegami and Sony.

The sled’s aluminum die-cast chassis is designed to handle daily production tasks with a variety of professional functions that supports a wide range of optional equipment. This takes a non-studio, camera or camcorder and makes it ready for the broadcast user.

Other items being shown are the Nipros series of multicore systems, shoulder rigs, HD viewfinders and monitors and other system accessories.
