MultiDyne Introduces MD9200 Video Compression Products

At IBC2019, MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions will introduce its first video compression line of products — the MD9200 range of encoders and decoders. 

Ideal for linear broadcast/production and streaming media workflows (including OTT and IPTV systems), MultiDyne said the MD9200 series brings products to encode, compress, transport and deliver live HD, 4K and 8K content when paired with fiber transport systems.

The initial MD9200 series consists of encoders and decoders in stand-alone desktop configurations, and in the openGear card module form-factor. All encoder models enable secure streaming from one to many destinations, supporting any mix of streaming protocols.

Each independent encoder accommodates frame size, frame rate, video/audio codecs and data configurations, and 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.
