Fibre termination The Shadow Box has been added to Joseph Electronics’ Caddie series. The A/V interface can be placed at any camera position using an existing SMPTE hybrid camera cable and allows remote camera crews to expand their A/V signal options in situations where the hybrid camera cable is the only cable available. “Camera crews have to run additional fi ber and/or copper cables to camera positions if the A/V requirements exceed what the camera’s I/O features can provide,” said Yohay Hahamy, chief executive of Joseph Electronics. “It’s a time- consuming process that needlessly complicates the shoot and often means added costs for cables and labour. Now crews can simply insert a Shadow Box unit between the hybrid cable-equipped camera and its CCU to increase their A/V options for applications like last-minute standups during sports events.” www.josephelectronics.com Broadcast mics DPA Microphones introduced two new broadcast microphones at NAB including the d:facto Interview Microphone, a high-end handheld reporters mic. The d:facto Interview Microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities. The other new mic is the d:fi ne In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone. The d:fi ne In-Ear is targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio. www.dpamicrophones.com See interview JOECOTV-BAY210X74adMAY15_Layout 1 06/05/2015 09:20 Page 1 THE PROFESSIONAL CHOICE 24 TRACKS • 24 INTEGRATED MIC PREAMPS • 1 RACK UNIT • Live 24bit/96kHz audio acquisition – no computer required • Records to USB2/3 drive for instant ingest into post production • Remote control via iPad with JoeCoRemote • Runs off 12V power source for location use • Optional MADI or Dante interfaces • Optional 2U XLR breakout panel BLACKBOX BBR1MP RECORDER www.joeco.co.uk JoeCo Limited Tel: +44 (0) 1954 250 300 | info@joeco.co.uk For details of your local distributor please visit Where to Buy at www.joeco.co.uk KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 101 MAY 2015 | 09
