MultiDyne To Expand 12G Series Of Fiber Transport Products At IBC

MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions will broaden its range of 12G and openGear fiber transport solutions at IBC with the introduction of its next-generation OG-4600 and FiberSaver solutions. 

Now shipping, MultiDyne said both products enable broadcast, production and digital cinema customers to efficiently manage and transport higher resolutions and signal counts with streamlined connectivity.

The OG-4600 Series is comprised of five openGear cards, each of which supports the transport of up to four uncompressed, unprocessed 12G video streams over fiber. Depending on the application, the modularity of the series incorporates AES3 and/or analog line-level audio, Ethernet, genlock, GPIO, serial data, tally and/or timecode.

All modules are compatible with the openGear platform, with SNMP management and cross-network monitoring capabilities using openGear Dashboard software.

Each module brings as many applications and channels onto a single card as were dispersed across three or more cards with earlier generation gear. This optimizes space on each card and reduces the overall weight of each modular chassis.

MultiDyne will also bring its new FiberSaver FS-12G Series of bi-directional fiber multiplexers and wavelength re-mappers to IBC. The FS-12G Series, available in portable and rackmount versions, is built to help engineers send and receive more optical signals over fewer fibers.

Units are scalable in increments of six channels, providing a cost-effective solution compared to running a new, additional fiber to carry extra signals.
