xxxThe CFS-1 is something totally unique in the realm of field production. It is a control center and production switcher for a full component shoot service six cameras or camcorders powered by 12 VDC and, when closed, appears as a Haliburton briefcase.
       As a control center, the CFS-1 centralizes:
  • P.L (intercom);
  • power;
  • genlock timing;
  • audio;
  • equalization
  • remote composite ISO switching;
  • monitoring;
  • waveform/vector measurement, and;
  • tallys
       As a switcher, the CFS-1 is a four level 2 bus video mixer, with crossfade, "take", and a separate fade to black. The levels are:
  • composite;
  • Y;
  • R-Y, and;
  • B-Y

Ten wipe patterns are also provided.
       The unit has six 26 pin camera input connectors, each with a parallel BNC for composite only operation. A second BNC provides an equilized composite ISO output. Cable compensation is accomplished by six 4 channel equalization amplifiers capable of handling up to 600 feet of component cable.

       Each input has a Beta, M-2, EBU switch allowing various formats to be intermixed in a single production. Equalized composite and component outputs are available for each input facilitating iso recording made at the switcher.
       Four program outputs are provided by two component circular connectors and two BNC sets. Since most component cameras also provide composite outputs, the CFS-1 provides two independent, remotely controlled, internal composite routing matrixes so that video may be viewed hundreds of feet away without disturbing the operator or recorded video.

       The PS-3 sensing power supply makes possible cable runs over 1200 feet without external adjusment, while the 4 channel cable booster (26EQS) provides the additional video cable compensation needed.
       Seven individually timeable black burst outputs are produced by the CFS-1. Six of these provide the genlock video signals required by the input devices (cameras, etc.). The remaining black burst is available on a BNC for other uses.
       The LCD Monitor Bridge, with LED tallies, and Hamlet™ waveform/vector device complete the "video truck in a case" concept. Multi camera setup is accomplished in minutes rather than hours, as cameras can be equalized and timed as fast as they can be connected and powered.
       A steady list of options continue to be created to add to the usefullness of the CFS-1. Inquire at J-Lab!
