Norwia and Electric Friends
Electric Friends camera robotics uses Norwia fiber optical technology
Norwia provides the robotic camera manufacturer Electric Friends with a custom-designed CWDM system for fiber
optical transport of HD-SDI as well as emerging IP broadcast signals from camera and monitors. Each system is
also capable of transporting legacy control signals such as TALLY, RS-422 as well as IP-based control data.
Each system is installed in the Electric Friendsí Trolley, which is the central component of an Electric Friends Trolley / Tower / Rail / Trolley Control system.
The standard configuration cover:
- Camera video signal (HD-SDI)
- Black & burst synchronization
- Prompter monitor (HD-SDI)
- Program monitor (HD-SDI)
- Additional wavelength pair available for 2nd Gb/s Ethernet or 3rd monitor signal
- RS-422 available for broadcaster (e.g. Camera lens-control)

NRK uses miniHUB's flexible optical transport system for their Metro Ring Network
Faced with both growing requirement for live outside broadcasting and concerns over reliability and cost of
both microwave and satellite links, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation(NRK) developed a fiber ring
architecture for video transport across Oslo.
The use of the innovative Norwia miniHUB solutions with its AutoSFP cards has enabled a highly resilient and redundant transport of video and data to each node across the metropolitan fiber network.
"We can go live with just a few minutes setup and we have achieved 100% availability since launch."
