BSD: What makes SKB Fly Racks a supe- rior solution for traveling with rack gear? WS: As the prices have risen to fly or ship rack equipment, and the limitations to fly- ing with gear have become increasingly more prohibitive, our Fly Rack series has provided a unique solution by offering a variety of sizes and depths that are travel friendly. They utilize our military-grade, lightweight, watertight iSeries cases and molded rack frames, and they feature a SKB (Cont'd. from p. 1) custom cut high density foam interior to protect the rack frame (with space below for small accessories), which equals a lot of protection in a compact, checkable size. We've also included TSA locking latches on these cases, making it easy to keep your gear protected when not in use. BSD: What new products are you excited about? WS: The expansion of our Fly Rack series, which now includes two new 20-inch sizes, and the latest iSeries sizes. They're unlike anything else in the industry!

Since IW introduced its High Performance 75Ω cables, it has continued developing this technology to offer improved performance for 4K/8K/SDI applications. Precision 75Ω N and high frequency BNC assemblies are being used in test and system applications up to 12GHz, with customer proven performance to 18GHz. The company is currently proto- typing a new HD-BNC male design for 1151/75 and 75Ω BNC male for 2801/75 to provide lowest attenuation with excel- lent phase stability over temperature per- formance to 18GHz. IW 50Ω cables are used in custom configurations for high performance audio applications. Multi-coax compos- ites using stranded center conductor cables are employed due to extremely low attenuation achieved by its low den- sity PTFE proprietary lamination process and silver plated copper conductor and double shield design. Founded in 1970, Insulated Wire, Inc. developed a unique PTFE lamination process and applied it to the manufactur- ing of wire and cable. This process allowed IW to manufacture products of unprecedented reliability along with smaller diameters. Combining the lami- nation process with a patented shield design allowed IW to become one of the leaders in low loss microwave transmis- sion lines utilizing both solid and expanded PTFE dielectrics. In 1988, IW expanded its operations and created the IW Microwave Products Division which offers a wide range of microwave cable assemblies that operate from the low MHz to 70GHz in frequency. These cables, coupled with a broad array of IW (Cont'd. from p. 1) connectors, allow IW to create custom assemblies for both military and com- mercial applications. IW strives to stay ahead of the ever- changing military/commercial microwave markets by implementing new products and processes. These include cables with stable phase performance over both tem- perature and flexure, its Tuf-Flex™ cables which offer compression resistance up to 250 pounds per linear inch, polyurethane jacketed cables for low smoke/zero halo- gen applications and stranded center con- ductor cable for increased flexibility. Its high performance 75Ω cables are being used in the video tracking and surveillance areas of UAVs, and satellite launch vehi- cles. IW has developed special procedures to work with the increasing demand for smaller cables and connectors without compromising performance. IW's engineering staff can help with questions that may occur during any phase of a project. This includes assis- tance for cable/connector configuration in racks, 'black boxes' and other systems where transmission line performance is critical, specialized custom designs and anything in between. IW can also be on site to help with cable routing and instal- lation. Engineering support is also avail- able for optimal cable/connector selec- tion for unique applications. IW operates two facilities. Headquarters and cable manufacturing are located in Bayport, New York, and the Microwave Products Division, responsible for the production and sale of all microwave assemblies, is located in Bethel, Connecticut.

The unit comes preset with standard audio and caption data outputs for Link Electronics encoders, making setup for the device quick and efficient. The ACE-Flex4 is also available in a con- venient bundle to include the SCE-492 caption encoder to create a complete auto- mated captioning and encoding solution. The ACE-Flex4 is backed by a 1-year warranty and free 24/7 customer support. Link Electronics builds products to provide access to various modes of Link Electronics (Cont'd. from p. 4) video and audio communication. Link serves broadcasters in the television market, municipalities, educational institutions, religious institutions and closed captioning services worldwide. Most equipment is backed by an indus- try-leading 10-year warranty. All Link Electronics equipment carries 24/7/365 free technical support. Most products are manufactured in its Branson, Missouri headquarters and are available through dealers worldwide.

The Ultimate in U.2 NVMe SSD Fast Swapability OWC also introduced the OWC U.2 NVMe Interchange System, an optional companion to the Mercury Helios 3S that converts it into a fast-swappable U.2 NVMe SSD storage system. For media and entertainment industry professionals seeking the ultimate in performance from U.2 NVMe SSDs, plus easy drive swap convenience in a protective, trans- OWC (Cont'd. from p. 4) portable carrier, this is your ticket. The OWC U.2 NVMe Interchange System for Mercury Helios 3S features a locking drive bay and drive tray that offers fast and easy access and transport of today's highest performing drives up to 16TB with real-world tested speeds up to 2631MB/s – over 4X faster than SATA drives. Offload the day's shoot into the Helios 3S, pull the Interchange System carrier tray out and ship it to postproduc- tion in minutes. Besides maintaining your project deadline, you'll enjoy sig- nificant savings versus shipping a heavy enclosure. Availability The OWC Mercury Helios 3S PCIe Expansion Chassis is available now at www.macsales.com for $229.99. The OWC U.2 NVMe Interchange System for Mercury Helios 3S is sold separately starting from $69.99.

It has been proposed that the U.S. clear mid-band spectrum for 5G in two phases: phase one would assign 3700-3800Mhz for 5G, and phase two would allocate additional spectrum to cover 3700-3980Mhz. In each phase there will be a 20Mhz guard band between the 5G spectrum and the newly assigned C band frequencies. If this pro- posal is adapted, there will be a very aggressive timeline to clear the spectrum and launch. Many pending equipment recipi- ents have voiced their concern regard- 5G (Cont'd. from p. 1) ing the amount of time it might take to get equipment installed. It has been estimated that the U.S. might require up to 100,000 filters needed to support the demand, not to mention other equip- ment needs. Preparation is the suggested course of action. Satellite dish owners: contact your manufacturer/distributor, discuss your equipment needs and get your com- pany on a deployment list to ensure time- ly installation. Distributors, installers, consultants and integrators: work with your manufacturers and plan on having extra equipment to support the demand.
