The HKC-HB15 Fiber Transmission Unit is an upgrade for the HDC1500/1500R camera that doubles the signal transmission bitrate to 3G (3 Gigabit/second). Cameras with this enhanced capability are able to work as a complete 1080/50p or 60p production system.

Upgraded cameras and CCUs will be ready for use in future 3G and 3D video environments.
Support 1080/50P, 60P signal output
3G High Bit Rate transmission between CAM-CCU to support 1080/50P, 60P signal output from CCU?with SMPTE425M Single Link option capability
Support RGB 444 signal ouput.
3G High Bit Rate transmission between CAM-CCU to support RGB 444 signal output from CCU (This function will be added this autumn.)
Trunk Line Operation
Trunk Line Operation provides Dual Camera System ?2CAM-2CCU? or Sub-Camera system ?2CAM- 1 CCU? operation, which can offer less cabling operation
Support HD SDI Prompter signal transmission
HD SDI prompter can be configured, which is useful as high quality prompter or floor monitor system.


Supports 1080/50p, 60p signal output
3G High Bitrate transmission between the Camera and CCU. Optional SMPTE425M Single Link capability
Supports RGB 444 signal output from the CCU*
High Bitrate transmission between the Camera and CCU supports RGB 444 signal output from the CCU*

*this function to be added autumn 2010
Trunk Line operation
The new high bitrate capability can be used in Trunk Line mode to connect two cameras to two CCUs via single cable.

Alternatively, two cameras can be can be connected to one CCU, where the Sub camera's remote signal is added to that of the the Main camera. Both can be controlled separately from RCPs. Tally, Intercom and Audio do not function on the Sub camera in this operational mode.
Supports HDSDI Prompter signal transmission
The HKC-HB15 can be configured to supply a signal to an HD SDI prompter for high quality prompting, or it can supply a floor monitor system
