SMPTE 311M, single-mode fibre optic and copper hybrid camera cable, manufactured using Furukawa TV-OM-AMS SMPTE specification cable, terminated with Lemo SMPTE 304M connectors including sleeves, dust caps and gaiters, for high definition video camera to CCU interconnect.
Lemo's range of high performance fibre optics camera connectors have been developed to meet the needs of the new generation of digital TV cameras forming the basis of the SMPTE, ARIB and EBU standards. The LEMO 3K.93C connector has been fully tested, is TUV approved and is used in international events transmissions and in applications such as the Sony BVP9500 super slow motion camera to CCU. The face of each F2 fibre contact in the connector goes through a precise, multi-stage, laboratory standard polishing process. This process achieves excellent optical clarity and alignment, thereby reducing return loss and minimizing insertion loss.
Furakawa's TV-OM-AMS cable is manufactured to the American SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) standard (as opposed to their more expensive Japanese ARIB version which Bryant also stocks).
The Bryant Unlimited/ Furakawa SMPTE terminated camera cable's performance is proven superior to most other supplier's standard SMPTE offerings; exceeding the physical, electrical and very tight, bend insensitive radii optical requirements of the specification; enabling them to withstand the rigours of cable installation and remote field applications, whilst still providing a considerable cost saving over their ARIB cables.
Bryant can not only manufacture but also rebuild most makes of SMPTE camera cables in their Croydon, UK premises; thus avoiding the costs of sending imported cables back to the USA or Asia for repair.
