CSP Mobile Productions Picks Joseph Electronics for More Efficient Fiber Transport During Fox Football Broadcasts

Publish date:

NILES, Ill. -- Sept. 29, 2015 -- Joseph Electronics (JE), the premier one-stop shop for the broadcast industry and provider of fiber termination and custom fiber solutions, today announced that CSP Mobile Productions has deployed a set of DFT-12-JR fiber transport modules to handle HD video transport for Fox Sports' college football broadcasts. The units enable CSP to make more efficient use of fiber during the broadcasts. 

"When we signed our multiyear contract with Fox to cover college football games, it was critical that we be able to maximize all available fiber in order to send multiple HD video signals down a limited number of fiber strands. Joseph's DFT-12-JR gives us an easy, affordable, reliable way to do it -- with redundancy -- using only 1-RU of space," said Len Chase, president of CSP Mobile Productions. "Our operators and engineers love it because it is permanently racked in the truck and tied directly into the patch field. And they can easily change the direction of the signals by simply swapping modules."

Part of Joseph Electronics' DFT (Digital Fiber Transport) Series of signal transport solutions, the 1-RU DFT-12-JR system features 12 paths of 3G/HD-SDI, MADI, or ASI signals over one or two fibers. All signal paths are user-configurable in pairs of two in order to meet any send/receive requirements, and redundant power supplies are standard for ensuring a complete backup of critical paths. 

CSP's new fiber system is installed in the company's newest mobile unit, CSP HD 4, and is configured for eight transmits and four returns of HD video. Before getting the DFT solution, CSP used heavy coax looms or single-channel fiber solutions.

In the offseason, CSP deploys the system to other events, such as MMA fights and, more recently, on behalf of the Boston Athletics Association at the Boston Marathon for supplying HD monitor feeds to the Boston Public Library.

"We designed the DFT Series to be the standard in economical signal transport over fiber so that customers like CSP can accommodate demanding events with ease. DFT-12-JR gives CSP a low-cost solution for the bidirectional flow of up to 12 video signals on a single fiber, which saves the company the time and trouble of dealing with coax in a crowded truck compound," said Yohay Hahamy, president and CEO of Joseph Electronics. "Now CSP can get the job done with a rack-mounted package that can be easily reconfigured or deployed in other situations."
