The ASI-Bridge CAM HDV to ASI converter offers more direct transmission of HDV news footage, and easy on-set recording using D-VHS. The ASI-Bridge CAM can also be used with the HD-Bridge DEC+ for long range HDV newsgathering. Description:
The ASI-Bridge CAM is a camera-mounted HDV to ASI converter, which offers direct transmission of HDV news footage, and more effective HDV recording to an MPEG-2 server. The ASI-Bridge CAM can also be combined with the HD-Bridge DEC+ to create a highly effective long range HDV newsgathering system. This overcomes the short range limits of Firewire cable, and allows more flexibility in the field.
Mirandas ASI-Bridge CAM interface accepts HDV via an IEEE-1394 connection, and converts it to standard MPEG-2/ASI format. The interface is ideal for HDV news gathering, and can be used to convert HDV directly to ASI without the need for a costly HD MPEG-2 encoder.
The ASI-Bridge CAM allows direct MPEG-2 recording on a server for cost effective preparation of dailies. The use of ASI cabling from the camera means the dailies recording device can be located further away from the camera. The compact interface mounts discretely between an HDV camcorder and a tripod, and accepts power from the camera battery or from a dedicated in-line power supply.HDV/IEEE-1394 to MPEG-2/ASI interface
