FieldCast Fiber Dock One

 

FieldCast Fiber Dock One is a 1RU four-channel fiber optic converter designed for 3G SDI
PTZ camera systems with ethernet control.

 

Overview

 

As a four channel solution, Fiber Dock One brings you four channels of 3G SDI output, so
you can connect straight to your switcher or monitor, but instead of coaxial cable, it
uses fast and reliable fiber optic connectivity to transport the video signals generated by
your PTZ cameras.


You can connect your PTZ controller directly to the Ethernet i/o port of Fiber Dock One,
and it will act as a standard ethernet switch between your controller and your cameras,
but again, instead of copper cable, it uses fast and reliable fiber optic connectivity to
communicate with them.


Furthermore, Fiber Dock One features a four channel 24VDC power supply to power all
four cameras over the cable.


And here it comes all together. For every channel, Fiber Dock One connects to FieldCast
hybrid cable, and this light and robust cable contains two strands of fiber for data
transport and two copper conductors for power transmission. Just imagine, each
camera only needs one flexible cable to transmit uncompressed SDI video, control data,
and power!


At the other end of each hybrid cable you only need to aVach FieldCast PTZ Monk, a one
channel fiber optic converter with 3G SDI input, Ethernet i/o and 12VDC output. Once
your PTZ camera is connected to FieldCast PTZ Monk, it can start up, it will listen to the
PTZ controller you connected to FieldCast Fiber Dock One, and a video signal will neatly
show up at one of the Dock's four SDI monitor outputs.

 

Basic concept


Fiber Dock One is part of the easiest FieldCast fiber optic system, designed for high quality PTZ cameras with uncompressed 3G SDI output and ethernet control.


The basic concept behind the system is simple. A multiple channel converter uses hybrid
fiber optic cables to connect to the PTZ cameras. Each cable has a small active box at the
end, powering the camera and connecting to its SDI output and its ethernet connector.
And here you are: power, video and control data over just one cable!

 

How does it all connect?


Fiber Dock One comes with a power cable. It receives 110/220V AC power and sends
24VDC power out to devices in the chain.


To make Fiber Dock work at a minimum functional level, you need at least 1 FieldCast
PTZ Monk and 1 FieldCast Hybrid Main Cable. Connect the FieldCast Hybrid Main Cable
to Fiber Dock One at the one end and to PTZ Monk at the other end.


Now connect the third-party products. Use FieldCast PTZ Monk to connect to your PTZ
camera. Use the ethernet i/o port of Fiber Dock One to connect to your PTZ controller.
Use the SDI out port of Fiber Dock One to connect to your switcher and, alternatively,
use the dual SDI out port to connect to a monitor.


You now can control and monitor 1 PTZ camera with 1 PTZ controller and only need 1
fiber optic cable to feed both camera and controller, and transport video and camera
control data over the same cable.


With Fiber Dock One you can connect to a maximum of 4 PTZ cameras, using 4 FieldCast
PTZ Monks and 4 FieldCast Hybrid Main Cables. Is 1 PTZ controller in your setup not
enough? No problem. Just use Fiber Dock's ethernet i/o port to connect to an ethernet
hub and subsequently connect to as many PTZ controllers as you want.

 

Features


Fiber Dock One comes with a power cable to be plugged in the 110/220V AC power
input of the unit. Inside, A/C power is converted to 24VDC power, so it can output low
voltage power over fiber optic cable to power up PTZ controllers, FieldCast PTZ Monks,
and PTZ cameras.


The front side contains 1 Ethernet i/o port to connect to a PTZ controller or ethernet
hub. You don't need to power the PTZ controller with its own power supply. You can
have Fiber Dock One supply the power for your PTZ controller. Just use the XLR
connecton at the backside of Fiber Dock One and connect to the DC In of your PTZ
controller. Now the PTZ controller is powered by Fiber Dock One.


At the backside, Fiber Dock One houses 4 FieldCast Hybrid Chassis Connectors to
connect to 4 FieldCast Hybrid Main Cables. Each chassis connector contains two strands
of fiber for data transport and two copper conductors for power transmission.

 

Over fiber, each connector receives uncompressed SDI video from a PTZ camera and carries
ethernet (camera control data) i/o. Over the copper conductors, each chassis connector
delivers 24VDC power output to power up a FieldCast PTZ Monk and a PTZ camera. Just
imagine, each camera only needs one flexible cable to transmit uncompressed SDI
video, control data, and power!


The backside of Fiber Dock One also houses 4 channels of 3G SDI out, with dual SDI
output per channel. So per channel, you can connect for instance to your switcher and
uses the dual output to locally monitor the SDI video generated by the PTZ camera.
