ShaxX SMPTE Hybrid Alternative Connector Kit for Power Insertion

The ShaxX allows the camera to be powered from a mains supply remotely located compared to the camera. Power can be inserted and transferred to the remote camera which can be up to 300m away. When combined with the Shax-CCU, cameras can be remotely deployed using the ordinary singlemode optical fibre network that may exist within a stadium. This system allows the user to replace the fibre/copper hybrid cable between the camera and the CCU with standard fibre cable and relay all the communications and signals. This frees the camera from being tethered to a local mains supply. The ShaxX/Shax system is perfect for Stadiums, Arenas and Concert Halls that have preinstalled fibre networks. The ShaxX is enclosed in a robust and ruggedised aluminium enclosure, ideally suited to Outside Broadcast and Fly Away applications. The ShaxX can also be combined with the BC Series Multi-format Interfaces to carry signals from multiple cameras over a single cable. This can help reduce and simplify rigging and installation time. Contact the Sales Office for additional information on the available options. Front panel LEDs give instant operational feedback of the link status between each camera and CCU.
