Exhibiting two new innovative products at the Broadcast Video Expo 2018, LEMO attended the big event, which is the UK´s largest entertainment and media tech event. The first of the new products launched by LEMO at the show was a new range of 3K.93C.Y SMPTE 304M connectors. This product is the next generation version of LEMO´s industry-standard HD camera connectors which offers users the additional benefits of a lower total cost of ownership.
With its reduced weight and improved internal design, it greatly reduces both transport and cable termination costs. In addition, this new product has been engineered to be more tolerant of operator variations and therefore performance can be more easily optimised during the termination process.
The second new product launched by LEMO at the show was its Compact Spice Tray (CST). Specifically targeted at the fast-paced broadcast market where ‘time is of the essence’, this product offers users the ability to quickly and easily install a space-saving and robust HD video bulkhead interface solution without compromising performance.
With each system accommodating up to eight SMPTE 311M hybrid fibre (HD) camera cables / LEMO 3K.93C SMPTE 304M bulkhead connectors, it is suitable for mobile production and studio applications.
By means of a portable automatic fusion splicer it can be field terminated, making it suitable for projects where application constraints prohibit the use of pre-terminated camera cables.
Being modular by design, this versatile system can be easily configured to specific application requirements and therefore quick turn-around bespoke solutions can be easily supported.
