HDX-Plus, Power Plus 2 & SHED

Power Solutions for Broadcast Cameras

The new generation HDX-Plus allows you to extend the distance between the camera’s CCU and HDX-Plus over fiber, and supply power from the HDX-Plus over SMPTE hybrid cable to the camera. The HDX-Plus is compatible with Grass Valley’s LDX range of cameras and Sony cameras. In addition, when HDX-Plus is used with Power Plus 2, it can be matched with any camera manufacturer when either an Anton Bauer or IDX power plate is available. Power Plus 2 replaces the on-board battery and provides up to 200W over 3 km (1.86 mi.) to the camera. HDX-Plus is compatible with SHED-BS when SMPTE power is required to be eliminated and converted to a fiber-only connection...

FEATURES

  • Allows the use of conventional single-mode fiber cable:
    • Infrastructure fiber
    • Tactical fiber cable
  • Uses common ST, SC, LC, MX or OpticalCON connectors for the fiber link

HDX-Plus, Power Plus 2 & SHED:

The new generation HDX-Plus from Grass Valley allows you to extend the distance between the camera's CCU and HDX-Plus over fiber, and supply power from the HDX-Plus over SMPTE hybrid cable to the camera. The HDX-Plus is compatible with Grass Valley's LDX range of cameras and Sony cameras.

In addition, when HDX-Plus is used with Power Plus 2, it can be matched with any camera manufacturer when either an Anton Bauer or IDX power plate is available. Power Plus 2 replaces the on-board battery and provides up to 200W over 3 km (1.86 mi.) to the camera.

SHED-BS when SMPTE power is required to be eliminated and converted to a fiber-only connection from CCU to HDX-Plus. 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 HD (and slow motion) camera links and in venue/facility infrastructure, and eliminate bulky hybrid wire/fiber.
