Evertz Fiber-optic Enabled Camera Adapter System

The Evertz Camera Adapter system provides a versatile fiber-optic enabled accessory to Sony HDW-F900(R) and XDCAM-HD, Panasonic, HDX-900 and HPX High Definition camcorders. There are three components to the system; each linked via fiber optic cable.

The Camera Adapter and Base Stations are available in several models to support a wide variety of cameras as shown below.

The non-fiber version of the camera-back adapter, and the fiber enabled high definition versions operating as a standalone units, provide HDSDI with embedded audio and time code, NTSC/PAL, SDI and IEEE1394A downconverted video, and 2 analog audio inputs for channels 3 and 4 (on Sony HDCAM models).

When the fiber enabled HD camera adapters are connected to the ECB-HD base station the camera video is transported to the base over fiber and broken out to HDSDI video with embedded audio and time code, analog or AES audio, LTC, NTSC/PAL, SDI and IEEE1394Adownconverted video with time code. The base station has inputs for return HDSDI, NTSC/PAL, 4 channels of analog or AES audio, genlock, time code and IFB. The fiber also transports bi-directional RTS intercom, camera remote control (with viewfinder menus), and contact closure tallies.

When the Camera power option is installed in the base station (-CP versions), the base station can send DC power over a hybrid copper/fiber optic cable to the camera adapter. This DC voltage is converted to battery voltage by the ECA-PS power module, which mounts on the camera adapter in place of a battery. When power is sent down the hybrid cable, the camera and accessories can be powered at a distance up to 2km.
