High bandwidth, robust and flexible

The Draka IP MediaLine fibre cable based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard also contributes to this. The high-quality broadcast fibre optic cable for high-speed data transport over IP networks meets the high demands of film and television production. The cable range includes non-metallic, gel-filled fibre optic central tube cables with two to 24 fibres for indoor broadcast applications and variants with the patented BendBright® technology for mobile outdoor applications, making them very insensitive to bending and robust. The BendBright® XS fibres are the first choice for all patch and camera cables. They offer companies measurable technical, economic and environmental advantages. The CPR Cca cables with FireRes® sheathing with very high flame retardancy feature dielectric glass yarn armouring for rodent resistance and high water attenuation. The IP MediaLine Fiber cable range also includes the MFC OS2 fibre optic cable, designed for mobile use.

The SMPTE 2110 standard describes the transmission of digital video signals (video stream) via 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 synchronised with each other without influencing each other. This allows separate routing and editing of the data - even with metadata (timecode, subtitles and teletext) assigned to the data sets.
