New Fiber-Optic Tri-Loc® Camera Connectors Set a New Standard in SMPTE Options
ORLANDO, FL, JUNE 5, 2013 – The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, showcases Pro Co Data’s SMPTE 304 Connectors at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 709). The new Fiber-Optic Tri-Loc camera connectors are compatible with all connectors in the field, making them ideal for high-end, live-broadcast productions.
Extremely rugged and reliable, the connectors are comprised of the heaviest gauge stainless steel available on the market. They also feature a low-loss Telcordia® GR-326 fiber-optic endface geometry core, perfect for today’s cinematic and broadcast productions. With industry-standard options such as a quick disconnect push/pull self-latching system and ARIB/EBU and ANSI/SMPTE compliancy, the SMPTE 304 Connectors are among the highest-performance options on the market.
“The composition of our SMPTE 304 Connectors makes them perfect for use in broadcast trucks and studios and at sport stadiums,” says Josh Welsh, technical services manager for Pro Co Data, a RapcoHorizon Company brand. “The steel construction provides the durability necessary for continuous use in the field, while the fiber optic connectivity interfaces with today’s digital cameras. Both of these features put Pro Co Data’s SMPTE 304 connectors at the top of their class.”
Customers can choose between Belden-, Furukawa- or RapcoHorizon-brand wires for a complete cable system. Custom reel options also give the user control over how and when to deploy the cable system.
