The new SMPTE-HUT system is a universal camera transceiver designed to free cameras from the limitations of hybrid cabling. Not only will you achieve transmission distances that are simply impossible over hybrid copper/fiber cables, you will also benefit from the absence of RF, EMI and grounding issues, faster set and strike times and lighter OB Vans, B-units and cable shipments.

This plug and play system can be used both as a passive, unpowered system where local power must be supplied to the camera head or as a powered system where the camera- end divice actually powers the camera head over up to 1000m of 14mm SMPTE hybrid ca- ble. With either powering scheme, at the CCU end is a small adapter that accepts the hybrid cable from the CCU.

There are two types of powered HUTs, the 3000 and the 3000+. For  most  customers the standard 3000 will do. But for users who have long lenses and other power consuming accessories, the 300+ will provide the extra power. Between the units can be up to 10km of two singlemode fibers either within tactical cables or within an installed fiber backbone.

The system works by “tricking” the CCU into seeing a physical copper connection between it and the camera. And since the system is optically passive, the two fibers can be rout- ed through our FOS-Series Optical Router or CWDM multiplexed with our FiberMux for up to three camera systems on just one fiber.

The SMPTE-HUT system. Extend the range of your HD camera systems, reduce weight and save time and money.
