Bluebell Opticom launches Stagebox Technology.
Cabsat 2013 will see the Middle East launch on the Bluebell stand of the latest camera back interface technology.
The Net Caddie is a new compact camera interface using the revolutionary “Stagebox by BBC Research & Development” technology.
Net Caddie allows HD-SDI to be injected directly into a standard IP network environment.
Net Caddie transforms the entire camera’s bidirectional linear control, audio and video signals into packet based IP protocols, all on a single Cat6 cable to simplify workflows and rigging.
By using “Stagebox by BBC Research & Development” technology with 100MB/s AVC-I compression, the HD-SDI is converted and carried over the network in full broadcast quality video. This allows a remote camera to be used directly in the production environment. Net Caddie provides video, audio and ancillary information over a time synchronous network.
Most importantly the system is completely synchronised providing an IP equivalent to a genlocked SDI system. Timing and control is based on IEEE 1588 and the proposed SMPTE timing standard.The system also allows remote connection of video sources, editing workstations and monitoring equipment. The IP stream also feeds directly into a workstation and can be viewed with many open standard software decoders.

News and Events
The ShaxX is designed to provide power to remote Sony cameras in a venue via standard SMPTE Hybrid Cables. Each unit is in a rugged and robust aluminium enclosure and is specifically designed for the harsh environment of an outside broadcast event.
Power can be inserted into the cable and power is delivered to the camera which can be up to 300m away. ShaxX
