At NAB2006 (booth #SU3019), Camplex will introduce its new PRO-XHD camera control system. Designed for the Canon, JVC and Sony HDV camcorders now available, the PRO-XHD converts the camcorder to a live HD camera capable of shooting live multi-camera productions in the studio or in the field.
Using a single CAT-5 cable, the PRO-XHD's dockable camcorder adapter conveys the camera's HD analog component video signal to the production control center, along with the SD composite video, operator intercom and camera program audio. Delivery of the SD video signal allows the user to use a conventional SD 9rather than HD composite video monitor for preview. Over the same CAT-5 cable the PRO-XHD simultaneously sends operating power to the remote camcorder, along with intercom and camera tally signal.
