The ES-series camera conversion system can transfer two lines of HD or SD SDI signal through a specially developed multi-core cable which interweave two HD/SD SDI cables with 26pin multi-core cable, this means both camera and return signal can be HD/SD SDI. Not only HD/SD SDI signals but also video component signals, HD-Y return, camera remote control, tally, time code, power supply, etc. can be transferred down one single cable. It realizes high quality and cost effective field and studio production system and maximum extendable distance between camera adaptor and base station is 50 meters with a max DC power is 50W.
The ES-series consist of three main elements, the ES-500P camera adaptor, ES-600P base station and new developed specially for Panasonic HDS-300 studio build-up unit. The HDS-300 professional studio build-up unit was designed for either compact handheld or shoulder type camera recorders. This robust and sample frame with aluminium die-cast chassis, the HDS-300 provides protection and easy connection to the ES-500P camera adaptor with a sliding mechanism.
