High bandwidth, robust and flexible
The Draka IP MediaLine Fiber cable based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard also contributes to this. The high-quality broadcast fiber optic cable for high-speed data transport over IP networks meets the stringent requirements of film and television production. The cable range includes non-metallic, gel-filled FO central tube cables with two to 24 fibers for indoor broadcast applications and variants with the patented BendBright® technology for mobile outdoor applications, making them highly resistant to bending and robust. The BendBright® XS fibers are the first choice for all patch, and camera cables. They offer companies measurable technical, economic as well as environmental benefits. CPR Cca cables with FireRes® jacketing with very high flame retardancy feature dielectric glass yarn armor for rodent resistance and high water attenuation. The IP MediaLine Fiber cable range also includes the MFC OS2 fiber optic cable, which is designed for mobile applications.
The SMPTE 2110 standard describes the transmission of digital video signals (video stream) over an IP network in real time. In contrast to earlier IP video standards, the transmission is in uncompressed format. Each data set (video, audio and additional data) is synchronized with each other without influencing each other. This allows separate routing and editing of the data – even with metadata (timecode, subtitles and teletext) associated with the data sets.
