DVEO has begun shipping FireBridge, an HDV-to-DVB-ASI converter with FireWire input. Designed for broadcasters and content providers, FireBridge converts high-definition 1394 output from the new generation of HDV cameras to DVB-ASI.
When used with the JVC GY-HD100U camcorder, FireBridge also converts the camera's FireWire output from 720 30p to 720 60p, making the output fully compatible with standard broadcast 720 60p equipment.
When used with the JVC GY-HD100U camcorder, for instance, FireBridge will allow a crew in the field to feed content via satellite or microwave and be assured that all standard HDTV decoders, including TANDBERG Television, Tiernan or JVC, can decode the footage captured on location.
