Optical Fibers for the high-res TV of the future
Conversion to 4K cameras to cause massive change in network structure
4K – the buzzword for realistic, impressive and ultra-highresolution imaging worlds. The demand for series, movies and broadcasts in Ultra-HD resolution will increase sharply in the future. In order to meet this milestone of the new broadcasting quality, the German broadcasting station Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk has converted its camera systems to 4K in five TV studios. The new Sony cameras only have SMPTE interfaces, so the previous copper connection had to be changed to fiber optics.
As part of the conversion of the studio camera systems of the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk, LWL-Sachsenkabel GmbH was entrusted with the production and supply of the required fiber optic infrastructure in cooperation with a local service provider. Get more information about the project.
