FieldCast is a manufacturer of robust fiber optic cables, adapters and converters. Based in The Netherlands, FieldCast produces a well balanced line of fiber optic products that meet the needs of anyone involved in live events registration, digital film production and video recording inside the studio or outside in the field. Fiber optic technology is ready to handle the high data rates of 4K and beyond, and guarantees a seamless, smooth and cost effective transition from traditional SDI infrastructure to IP based networks.
However, fiber optic connectivity standards and cable types are primarily aimed at IT, telecom and data center markets, and the connectors and cables that are implemented in these areas won't do in live events settings, on the film set or even in the studio, where there's a need for sturdy and durable products that can handle countless mating cycles, will be able to withstand maltreatment and can survive in harsh environments. FieldCast is trying to fulfill this need for robust fiber optic connectivity, and at a revolutionary low price point, in concordance with the decreasing price levels of cutting edge professional broadcast and film equipment. The FieldCast project can be summarized in just one word: standardization.
No complex order forms, no huge variety of products to choose from, no long and confusing specs lists, just a well defined choice of products that are easy to grasp and simple to use. FieldCast, as a standard product, is available from stock and affordable, with straightforward service and support worldwide. FieldCast, the fiber optic system, brings all your video and film equipment to light.
FieldCast is a young and dynamic company, leading the revolution of robust fiber optic connectivity for field use. From our head office in The Netherlands we are currently rolling out our international reseller channel program to bring our powerful products to you, the end user, with the care and attention they deserve and still need. We know that you will need fiber optics today or tomorrow, simply because copper cable can't handle the ever increasing data rates any more, in particular when longer cable distances have to be bridged, but we also know that fiber optic technology is relatively new and unknown in the growing markets of live events registration, film production, video walls, projection mapping etcetera. We love fiber optics and we want you to embrace this exciting technology too, get acquainted with it, use it to the max and understand how powerful and versatile it is as compared to traditional copper cabling techniques.
We are already active in Europe, including the UK, in the Middle East and in Africa, and soon will start to sell in the US and South America. Our core product is fiber optic cable, and our fiber optic adapters and fiber optic converters complement it perfectly. FieldCast is growing into a fiber optic system indeed, and we recently started to even develop a fiber optic camera controller too, expected to launch later this year, in September, at IBC time. Of course it can be used with our brand new 2Core Hybrid cable that can power your cameras over longer distances. Amazingly, this cable uses the same small form factor connectors as our regular 2Core and 4Core cables, and is a perfect match for the small and light weight cameras of today. Go FieldCast and bring your equipment to light!
