MultiDyne to Launch New SilverBack Fiber Transport Series at NAB

MultiDyne will refresh its SilverBack series of camera-mounted fiber transport solutions at NAB with three additions to serve live production needs across all budgets.

MultiDyne said the updated series, anchored by the IP-enabled SilverBack V, includes the debut of two models that extend MultiDyne’s reach into new production areas.

The SilverBack V broke ground in the convergence of fiber and IP-based production workflows in 2018. The 12G- and 4K-capable camera-back system incorporates an IP output and offers a gateway to multipoint IP networks, enabling users to move field-acquired content to many destinations.

The SilverBack V remains the high-end option for broadcast and digital cinema customers working with Ultra HD resolutions. Its optimized bandwidth efficiency accommodates the data rates that live 4K and 8K productions require. This is a benefit for live sports, concerts and motion picture productions.

New for NAB, MultiDyne has added power management capabilities to the SilverBack V that eliminates the need for external power supplies. This allows camera operators and cinematographers to power focus, iris and zoom directly from the unit without risk of power supply failure.

The design also supports two camera heads that are configurable to leading cameras, with a common, integrated multiviewer to monitor both cameras.

MultiDyne will also introduce the SilverBack HP, a re-imagined version of the SilverBack II fiber transceiver that adds two-channel intercom and Ethernet alongside video, audio and data. The SilverBack HP provides full bandwidth fiber-optic links for 3G, HD and SDI signals from the field to a truck, control room or other receive point along with genlock, tally and audio.

MultiDyne will also introduce the lower-cost SilverBack Pro, It provides worship facilities, corporations and K-12/higher education systems with a highly configurable camera-back fiber transport system to cover live performances, presentations, lectures and high school/college sports at an affordable price point.
