Bluebell Opticom to Present New Remote Configuration Features of BN390 Multiplexer

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell Opticom Ltd., provider of innovative fibre-optic solutions for fixed and remote applications, will showcase the new remote configuration features of its BN390 multiplexer.

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show
At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.

NEW -- Edgware

At the 2017 NAB Show, Bluebell Opticom will highlight Edgware, its new range of IP- gateway products that serve as a bridge between current 3G-SDI-based broadcast infrastructures and those built on IP technology. Edgware products make it possible to use BNC and XLR technology to transport broadcast signals over IP networks. The user interface remains the same, but the transport technology is new. The result is that broadcast facilities can save money by repurposing existing equipment for IP delivery.
