Multidyne HUT-CA-NA-SPP-ST2XXA HUT system frees camera chains from the limitations of hybrid copper and/or fiber cabling permitting cameras to be separated from their CCUs by distances of over 10km using inexpensive, conventional single mode fiber. This has many advantages over SMPTE hybrid cable including: Eliminating RF, EMI and grounding issues, Faster set and strike times saves time and money, Reduced weight makes for lighter OB trucks, B-units and cable shipments
Connect Anywhere Easily
The plug and play system allows camera chains to connect via a facility's fiber infrastructure or on tactical fiber cable in the field using industry-standard connectors, such as STs, LCs, SCs, or OpticalCON. The HUT system works by "spoofing" (or "tricking") the camera and CCU into seeing a physical copper connection between them when connected only by single mode fiber cable.
Local Or Remote Power
After a long run of single mode fiber, HUT-enabled camera systems can be configured in one of two ways: Power the camera with the HUT-CP over 1Km of hybrid cable. Power is sufficient for hand held cameras or cameras installed in sleds with long lenses and other high-power accessories. Power the camera locally with 12VDC.
Route And Multiplex Cameras
Once the hybrid cable is removed, a camera chain can be easily routed through optical routers, such as the LightningSwitch or EOS-5000. Use MultiDynes FiberSaver systems to multiplex up to nine cameras onto just one strand of single mode fiber.
Passive Or Active Optics
While typically passive to the camera chain optics, the HUT system is also available with active optics, that can be used to: Multiplex a camera chain onto a single fiber strand, Boost the optical range, Remap the camera & CCU optics to different wavelengths or extended distances of up to 80km. In addition to the below example, signals can be configured to run in either direction on the fiber.
