MultiDyne to Introduce New Compression Products for OTT and IPTV at NAB

MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions will enter the compression market at NAB with a range of professional, broadcast-quality encoders and decoders for streaming media workflows.

To be unveiled at the show, MultiDyne’s new MD9200 range provides products for OTT and IPTV service providers moving SD, HD and 4K/UHD content over public and private IP and fiber networks.

The initial MD9200 series consists of encoders and decoders in stand-alone, desktop configurations and in the openGear card module form-factor. The openGear encoding and decoding modules are compatible with the broader openGear community of infrastructure products.

Both encoder models enable secure streaming from one to many destinations, supporting any mix of streaming protocols. Each independent encoder configuration accommodates frame size, frame rate, video/audio codecs and data configurations. It can independently encode separately HD and SD streams at high and low bit rates from a single SDI input.

Both decoders optimize 1080P AVC (H.264) and 1080i MPEG-2 compression, with optional support for very high bit-rate 2160P HEVC (H265) UHD streams.

When using the OpenGear decoder (MD9200-DEC-OG), users can house up to 20 decoding modules in a single 2RU openGear chassis for high-density signal de-compression to SDI and HDMI. The standalone MD9200-DEC delivers the same operational benefits and visual quality for point-to-point streaming.

The MD9200 series was designed for use in IP-based contribution applications for news, sports and studio links.
