  • Tech Specs

Work with remote cameras up to 2 km away from your studio or outside broadcast truck using SMPTE fiber. The Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter converts SDI video, audio, and remote camera control connections into a single optical fiber cable, which connects to a Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter attached to a remote camera. All video and data are transmitted using standard IP for extremely low latency broadcast quality video. You get 12G-SDI for an HD or Ultra HD camera feed and 3 independent HD return feeds, along with standard connections for camera control, PTZ, two dual channel talkback intercoms, tracker talkback, tally and a 5 inch LCD screen for monitoring camera and return feeds. The Blackmagic Studio Fiber Converter also provides power for your remote cameras and accessories!
