BVE 2015: Bluebell leads with converters and links
The Bluebell BC364 is a compact, rack-based multiformat converter for use with a wide range of broadcast video and audio signals. The BC364 provides a base unit that comprises input and output SFP cages. With different SFP converter modules, users can adapt the functionality of the unit to suit different applications.
Signal input and output formats are defined by selecting appropriate standard SFPs that can perform optical and/or electrical format conversions. The BC364 card offers a range of options including distribution, format conversion, monitoring, and wavelength management including CWDM. Such a wide range of functionality allows the BC364 to act as a toolkit for systems engineers as well as a high quality converter for any fixed installation.
The BN366 is designed for the cost-effective transport of 4K UHD signals over fibre. Based on field-proven technology, the compact unit provides the transport of 4 x 3G-SDI signals over a dual fibre link. The BN366 uses premium-grade, broadcast-quality components to maintain the highest signal integrity and ensure transparent, error-free pathological signal performance. Units have already been successfully deployed to cover a series of major sporting events using the latest 4K Ultra-HDTV broadcast cameras.
The BN623 is the latest addition to the Bluebell BlueNano range of compact fibre optic interfaces providing bidirectional analogue audio and serial control data over fibre. The BN623 is specifically designed to link remote panels in an intercom system back to the main central routing position. The robust design allows the unit to be deployed in OB or flypack applications.
