CopperHead 3200
Fiber Optic Camera Transceiver

The CopperHead 3200 system is a robust fiber optic link between your camcorder and your truck, control room or "video village" position. The system will simultaneously transport both digital (SDI or HD-SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) program video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, tally/call and intercom signals between the camera and the base station.

*The maximum cable length varies due to optical loss that can depend on cable quality, dirt/dust/contamination on connectors, and number of fiber interconnects. When using hybrid cable for power, the size of the hybrid cable, as well as the power draw of the camera, lens and accessories are also factors.
