SHED-HDX
SMPTE Hybrid Elimination Device Adapter

SHED stands for SMPTE Hybrid Elimination Device, and that is what it is. It is a small adapter that allows you to use ordinary single-mode optical fiber for your HD (and slow motion) camera links and in your venue/facility infrastructure, and eliminate bulky hybrid wire/fiber.

  • Allows the use of conventional single mode fiber cable
    • Infrastructure fiber
    • Tactical fiber cable
  • Uses common ST, SC, MX or OpticalCON connectors
  • Extends distance limits of camera
  • Provides power to camera, or permits local powering
  • Small, lightweight adapters
  • Built-in optical power meter
  • Front panel status monitoring
  • Safety interlock on HDX
  • Remote shut-off of camera head (optional)
  • Fast plug and play operation
  • Can be used with TelePort 3G/TeleThon 3G for CWDM optical multiplexing
  • All camera signals on lightweight fiber cable
  • Digital SDI or HD-SDI program video
  • HDX also supports CopperHead PowerPlus and powered POV Systems
Electro-Optical
  • Fiber type: Single mode
  • Note: SHEDs and HDXs are optically passive

    • SHED: 0.45 kg (1 lbs.)
    • SHED-6: 2.27 kg (5 lbs.)
  • Connector:
    • Electrical: IEEE 3-pin (XLR-4 on SHED-6)
    • Optical: LEMO, ST, SC, MX, OpticalCON
  • HDX input voltage: 115-230 VAC
  • Output max load: 200 VA
  • Power consumption: <20W
  • Indicators: Power ON, voltage indications, Optical power
  • Temperature range: -20 to 55° C (-4 to 131° F)
  • Humidity range: 0 to 95% non-condensing
* Maximum length of SMPTE cable with power varies with the camera system configuration, lens type, viewfinder type, size of the optical fiber cable and the number of cable connectors.

SHED-HDX: SMPTE Hybrid Elimination Device Adapter Datasheet

SHED stands for SMPTE Hybrid Elimination Device, and that is what it is. It is a small adapter that allows you to use ordinary single-mode optical fiber for your HD (and slow motion) camera links and in your venue/ facility infrastructure, and eliminate bulky hybrid wire/fiber.

SHED adapter shown with HDX camera power unit cables. Use two small adapters — one at your base station and one at your camera — and locally power your camera, or use the HDX unit to power the camera through the hybrid tail cable. With the SHED units you can support several cameras on one lightweight fiber cable.
