Model Details

The CopperHead G1 system provides a robust fiber optic link between any professional camera or camcorder and your truck, control room or "video village" position. The system simultaneously transports both digital (SDI or HD/SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) program video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, tally/call and intercom signals between the camera and the Base Station.
Since the CopperHead transmits all signals digitally and optically, you are assured of the highest quality video and audio—free from interference, grounding problems or drifting due to temperature variations.
The CopperHead Camera Unit mounts directly to the camera's battery plate (V-Mount, Anton-Bauer or PAG) and provides for a variety of power options. The Base Station end is a lightweight 1RU frame located at the “video village” position, or in your truck or control room.
CopperHead is your solution to the size, weight and transmission problems of ordinary coax and multicore cabling. You will save time and effort, and insure that your production gets done fast, right, on schedule, and on budget.
