Neutrik has long been a pioneer in the development of ruggedized, high-performance fiber optic connector systems for professional broadcast applications. Now, with the release of their new opticamSWITCH  system, Neutrik has delivered the ultimate solution for fiber optic camera routing within broadcast studios.

The new system allows switching of unlimited camera positions between multiple studios & control rooms within a broadcast facillity and eliminates the need for high-maintenance, risky matrix patch fields using SMPTE patch cables.

opticamSWITH features state-of-the-art, silica-based PLC’s (planar lightwave circuits) equipped with TO (thermo-optic) switches. This innovative, patent-pending design guarantees rugged and safe non-blocking fiber plus camera power switching without any moving parts.

In addition, the LAN-based remote control software simplifies operation, displays switching & camera status and enables broadcast production automation.
