Versatile System Components
HDFA-200 HD Optical Fiber Adaptor Unit
The HDFA-200 is an optical fiber adaptor which employs sophisticated
high bit-rate transmission technologies to realize stereoscopic 3D camera
You can configure an unprecedentedly high-performance, highly
compact 3D camera rig using the HDFA-200 combined with the
POV-style HDC-P1 HD Multi-purpose Camera.
Alternatively, a simple system can be configured using the HDFA-200 with a single optical fiber cable.
The HDFA-200 can also transmit RGB 4:4:4 signals using an F35 Digital Cinematography Camera with
a 35-mm-sized CCD sensor and PL lens mount.
With its sophisticated performance and functionality, the HDFA-200 is ideal for a broad range of
applications such as 3D live production and TV program production with digital cinematography cameras.
Optical fiber transmission
By employing high bit-rate digital optical fiber transmission technologies, signals
can be transmitted from two cameras to a camera control unit (CCU) with a
single optical fiber cable. Power*
and genlock signals can also be supplied to
the two cameras.
*1 Up to DC 13 A (14 V) power can be supplied. It depends on connected devices or the cable length.
Stereoscopic 3D multi-camera operation
The HDFA-200 provides data transmission capability that includes two-channel
audio input, intercom, and trunk data (a general-purpose control signal via a CCU
and the HDFA-200). The adapter unit lets you carry out 3D multi-camera system
operation as simply as with a conventional camera system.
Beneficial single remote panel operation
Flexible 3D system camera operation is assured. You can control left-eye and
right-eye cameras simultaneously or separately for individual adjustment.
Viewfinder output with
multiple diagnostic/monitoring modes
The HDFA-200 has a viewfinder output, which offers several ways to display the
output from the two connected cameras. You can choose from Split, Mix, and
Difference modes, as well as a variety of other options designed to ease the
process of rigging 3D camera pairs.
3D monitoring with a viewfinder
The viewfinder (VF) connector on the HDFA-200 can output just right-eye, left-
eye, or both right- and left-eye signals. In both right- and left-eye signals mode,
you can select split-, mix-, or Y difference-mode for adjustment of the 3D rig.
