Owslebury, UK – BHV Broadcast’s IBC 2011 exhibition plans include demonstrations of Video Ghost, its award-winning phantom power modules developed as a low-cost, reliable alternative to traditional batteries. The manufacturer of compact, cost-effective equipment for live production and post-production will also exhibit its full range of rack-mount and portable hybrid digital/analogue switchers, and rate/standards and up/cross conversion products in Hall 10 Stand F35.
BHV Broadcast’s Video Ghost brings phantom power to the video camera world! Video Ghost – winner of the prestigious Mario Award at NAB 2011 – provides a switchable 5V or 12V d.c. power source for camera accessories using the existing video cable. A 150m operating distance is achievable for SD, and 75m for HD. Amongst its many uses, the system can be used to power a composite to SDI converter at the camera, thus avoiding the significant signal degradation suffered by composite video over such distances.
“Video Ghost was developed to provide a set of affordable phantom power modules for use with digital video feeds,” says Julian Hiorns, BHV Broadcast’s managing director. “This long over-due product presents the industry with the video equivalent of phantom power for audio systems.”
