JVC’s New CopperHead Transceiver Plugs Directly Into GY-HM790U Camera

JVC Professional Products and Telecast Fiber Systems is showcasing the new CopperHead ProHD KA-F790 camera-mounted fiber-optic transceiver in Booth C4314 at this week’s NAB Show. Built exclusively for the JVC GY-HM790U ProHD camera, it is the first CopperHead to provide a direct connection to a camcorder without requiring external cables. Introduced last year at IBC, the KA-F790 is making its NAB debut.

Using a hidden 68-pin connector on the back of the GY-HM790U, the compact KA-F790 attaches directly to the camera body to provide full studio functionality in the field. The multiplexing system simultaneously transports bidirectional digital (SDI or HD-SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera head and the remote CopperHead Base Station. The lightweight, 1RU Base Station easily integrates into any studio, mobile truck, or portable flypack — and plugs directly into a facility’s switcher, router, intercom, and house sync systems.
