Overview

IP capable Triax Camera Control Unit
The HDCU-3170 Triax Camera Control Unit is an ideal companion for the Sony HDC-3170 system camera. It also adds IP live production capabilities to our full range of broadcast and studio system cameras.

While it’s intended primarily for triax operation, adding the HKCU-FB30 fibre option board makes the HDCU-3170 compatible with both triax and fibre systems – a benefit for production companies and OB trucks working in stadiums and venues with different transmission system.

Connecting to compatible cameras via triax cable, the compact (1.5U) HDCU-3170 supplies power to the camera, performs signal processing and provides an interface with external equipment.

With the addition of option boards and kits, the HDCU-3170 offers support for various interfaces including 3G SDI and IP. The CCU can provide simultaneous outputs of HD, HDR and SDR when used with HDC-3500 series system cameras.

Combined with the HKCU-SFP30 option board, designed for the SMPTE ST 2110 Professional Media Over Managed IP Network suite of standards, the HDCU-3170 CCU supports essential functionalities required for live IP production including tally, intercom and return.

Features

Compact and versatile
The compact 1.5U Camera Control Unit creates a standardised 19-inch rack system that is ideal for space-limited production areas.
IP functionality for live production
The optional HKCU-SFP30 interface kit adds essential functionality required for IP live production including ST2110 output and return and NMOS IS-04/05 as well as tally, intercom and return over IP.
Eight built-in SDI outputs
The HDCU-3170 is equipped with eight built-in SDI outputs, including four 3G-SDI outputs. For extra production flexibility.
High quality long distance signal transmission
Adding the optional HKCU-SFP30 supports long distance signal transmission up to 10km over single mode fibre, making the CCU ideal for space-limited environments such as OB vehicles.
