SONY Optical Fiber and Digital Triax Adapters

Sony newly introduces a variety of transmission options along with more flexible operation of professional live camera systems.
The CA-FB70 Optical Fiber Camera Adaptor and the CA-TX70 Digital Triax Camera Adaptor can be attached to the HXC-D70 Digital Multi-core Transmission Camera as well as to PMW-320/350/500 camcorders. The CA-FB70 provides excellent picture quality as well as flexible integration, while the CA-TX70 offers outstanding reliability especially in tough field operation.

CA-FB70 Optical Fiber Camera Adaptor
The CA-FB70 optical fibre adaptor for the HXC-D70 studio camera and PMW-320/350/500 camcorders, allows connection via fibre to the HXCU-FB70 Camera Control Unit (CCU). With the CCU, it is possible to control the HXC-D70 and PMW-320/350/500 up to a maximum distance of 250 meters, including the power and signals of Tally, Intercom, Video Return and also Prompter.

HXCU-FB70 Optical Fiber Camera Control Unit
The HXCU-FB70 is a dedicated CCU for the CA-FB70. The front panel incorporates commonly used controls for picture adjustment and color matching in multiple camera operation. The rear panel  includes a variety of input and output connectors which are convenient for live event production.

CA-TX70 Digital Triax Camera Adaptor
The CA-TX70 digital triax adaptor for the HXC-D70 studio camera and PMW-320/350/500 camcorders, allows connection to the popular HXCU-100 digital triax Camera Control Unit (CCU).With the CCU, it is possible to control the HXC-D70 and PMW-320/350/500 up to a maximum distance 1200 mt. with 14.5mm cable and 600 mt with 8.5mm cable, including the power and signals of Tally, Intercom, Video Return and also Prompter.

HXCU-D70 SD & HD Multicore Camera Control Unit
The HXCU-D70 HD multicore Camera Control Unit (CCU) for the HXC-D70 camera includes SD down-conversion as standard. The HXCU-D70 has its own user-friendly operational panel and supports the 700 control protocol, which allows it to be used with RCP-1x00 Series and RM-B750/B150 remote control panels. The HXC-D70 full HD system camera and HXCU-D70 CCU is an ideal solution for HD / SD small studio operations.

HXCE-FB70 Power Supply Unit
The HXCE-FB70 is beneficial for building a flexible system which needs longer wiring (more than 250 m) but also requires a power supply to the camera. The HXCE-FB70 has the same power supply capability as the HXCU-FB70, and can pass all signals between the CA-FB70 and HXCU-FB70 through either a single-mode optical fiber cable or a hybrid optical/power cable.

 
For the HXC-D70 & PMW-320/350/500 to be compatible with the Fibre & Triax adapters (now available!), existing cameras & camcorders need a firmware update to the following versions:
