Joseph Electronics to Intro Kick Box, Shadow Box
At this year’s NAB Show, Joseph Electronics is prepared to launch its latest fiber-related products, Kick Box and Shadow Box.
“The 2015 NAB Show will see the introduction of our Kick Box and Shadow Box products,” says Yohay Hahamy, President, Joseph Electronics. “These new additions to our Caddie series of products are ideally suited for the quick set-up and strike of hybrid-cabled camera systems and are completely plug-and-play. Also see our established DFT Series fiber transport solutions, as well as some innovative new products from our partners at DirectOut Technologies GmbH and Bluebell.”
Kick Box Fiber Breakouts
The Kick Boxes are designed to be “quick fixes” that are ideal for managing and maximizing fiber cable runs. These small rugged throw-down enclosures come in several different versions to accommodate different connector types. The first models will include opticalCON QUAD to four STs or to two opticalCON DUO’s. These little problem solvers are ideal for OB, D-SNG, and satellite applications.
The Shadow Box is a new addition to the popular Caddie line of fiber optic interfaces. Featuring multiple channels of 3G video, IFB, intercom, and audio, the rugged throw-down box can be powered via hybrid copper/fiber cable or operated with ST fibers and locally powered. The system can also be outfitted with a standard Anton-Bauer battery that can act as a fail-safe in the case of a power failure. With installed options, the Shadow Box can also power a SMPTE-equipped HD camera. This system is ideally suited for news stand-up positions or remote interview positions for sports
