Panavision WiFiber increases the reach of wireless devices such as video transmitters and iris controls by adding a fiber-optic link capable of carrying signals a greater distance between the set and video village. Designed to overcome the challenges of locations where wireless transmissions would otherwise be blocked or interrupted due to distance, Panavision WiFiber provides connections for video, iris and camera control, production sound, crew communications, and Ethernet for networking.  

Product Details

Offering wireless flexibility with the range and reliability of a hard-line fiber-optic connection, Panavision WiFiber overcomes line-of-sight limitations and extends bidirectional wireless communications between set and video village. With Panavision WiFiber, video village can be set up in areas where wireless connections with the cameras would otherwise be impossible.


The Panavision WiFiber system includes two enclosures, one for the camera area and one for the DIT/video-village area. The two enclosures are connected by a fiber-optic cable that exceeds 2000 feet.


Featuring 10 HDSDI I/O connections, Panavision WiFiber can be used with multiple cameras simultaneously. Two Ethernet channels enable network connectivity, and a comprehensive audio module allows for multiple bidirectional audio channels, which can be used for production audio and crew communications. The system can also drive a Preston MDR to enable iris control from the DIT station with a Panavision-supplied hand control unit. The camera and DIT enclosures can each be powered via two hot-swappable Anton Bauer Gold Mount batteries or a 4-pin XLR input; the rack-mount configuration for the DIT side features an XLR power input only.
