HDCE-RX50 (HDCERX50)

IP CCU extension adaptor for remote live production (receiver)

Overview

The HDCE-RX50 IP Camera Control Unit (CCU) extension adaptor supports IP routing with HDCE-TX50 between Camera and CCU for multi-studio use in order to reduce the cost and complexity of remote live production.

Used in conjunction with the HDCE-TX50 IP camera extension adaptor, the HDCE-RX50 connects directly to the CCU (camera control unit) that can is situated remotely from the camera head. Uncompressed signals from Sony HDC-5500/5000, HDC-3500/3100 and HDC-2500/2400/1700 series system cameras are converted to SMPTE ST 2110 and streamed over the IP network with no limitation on distance between camera head and CCU.

Support for leading IP intercom vendors including RTS, Clear-Com, and Riedel allows producers and directors at the main production center to communicate in real time with camera operators at a remote venue.

Used in conjunction with the HDCE-TX50 transmitter, the HDCE-RX50 also simplifies centralized allocation of equipment between multiple studios, control rooms, and machine rooms, allowing camera signals to be routed instantly over IP to another part of the facility.

Features

Cost-effective IP upgrade
The HDCE-RX50 IP camera extension adaptor allows broadcasters, OB providers, and live production specialists to upgrade to the benefits of IP Live production without needing to replace their current HDC camera investments. The HDCE-RX50 connects directly to a CCU that is located remotely from the camera head and HDCE-TX50 extension adaptor transmitter.
Efficient resource sharing
The HDCE-RX50 allows faster, more cost-effective use of shared production resource across multiple studios and locations. While conventional SDI infrastructures tie one camera to a single CCU by fiber cable. Used in conjunction with the HDCE-TX50 it allows flexible reconfiguration of cameras, CCUs, and other live equipment over IP without time-consuming reconnection of cables. This reduces the quantity of live equipment needing to be kept at each site, allowing resources to be shared efficiently.
Power supply from CCU
The HDCE-RX50 draws power directly from the connected camera control unit.
