WGBH in Boston is using a purpose-built fiber-transporter caddie from Joseph Electronics to deliver TV and radio signals between its new remote studio at the Boston Public Library and its main facility seven miles away, the company announced today.
The custom transporter caddie makes it possible for WGBH to broadcast from the new studio by carrying all A/V, ancillary and data signals in both directions through one self-contained product.
WGBH has full-duplex connectivity that allows operators to manage four cameras with full robotic control; two separate Gigabit Ethernet paths; return video and audio for PA, intercom, IFB, reference and monitoring; GPIO; DMX lighting control; and all microphones for radio and television.
Audio from the setup is brought back to the station in separate tracks and then distributed within the WGBH facility, it said.
