Neutrik presents opticalCON DRAGONFLY

Neutrik has announced the DRAGONFLY opticalCON Fiber Optic Camera Connector Series. As the newest addition to the company’s legendary opticalCON family of products, the new DRAGONFLY series offers advanced lens technology for the Broadcast and AV markets. DRAGONFLY will also be presented at IBC this year (8.C90)

With technology based on fiber lenses and fusion splicing, Neutrik’s DRAGONFLY achieves an extremely robust signal with minimal loss. opticalCON DRAGONFLY combines all the advantages of lens technology and makes it competitive with physical contact connectivity. DRAGONFLY is based on Neutrik’s patented XB2 Technology. Its innovative fusion splice high-performance lens transmits UHD 4K and 8K signals with very low loss, as the signal surface of the XB2 lens is 322 times larger than physical contact surfaces. This further results in low insensitivity against dust and dirt.

Of particular note, DRAGONFLY offers robust connectivity against vibration, thus having low po- tential for damage. It is also field serviceable — thanks to its fusion splice technology — making DRAGONFLY an outstanding choice for field broadcast applications. With its high performance- low loss attributes and its consistent quality, including 100% reliability, even at extreme temper- ature fluctuations, DRAGONFLY is both innovative and future-proof.

Neutrik’s DRAGONFLY re-defines simplicity and efficiency. Its hybrid connection transmits both power and data over a single connection, with low maintenance intervals. Switching to DRAGONFLY is easy, as it fits into standardized broadcast cutouts. Cleaning is quick and efficient using compressed air and water. With its reliable push/pull locking mechanism, IP68 rated dust and waterproof rating in mated condition, and proven anti-kink boot design, DRAGONFLY offers a long life of 10,000 mating cycles. (9/19)
