For anyone working in live events production, planning out and laying hundreds (if not thousands) of metres of video cable can be an absolute pain. Cable runs can’t always be laid in a straight line, or they might need to be patched through a distribution amplifier or converted to another signal type to allow for longer runs. This can add video delay, which leads to sync issues and…you get the idea. Fortunately, Teradek have recently announced a new product that can help to make this whole process easier and get rid of many of these annoying set-up processes.
