Multidyne extends Signal Conversion Line

MultiDyne Video and Fibre Optic Systems is to show a new range of compact and portable signal conversion units for broadcast and professional AV applications at NAB 2015. The Mini eXchange series comprises converters that are small enough to be installed behind a monitor, at the back of an equipment rack or on a camera support.

The new products form part of the MultiDyneAV range, which comprises units that each carry out a specified task. The first Mini eXchange Series modules will perform HD-SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI conversion, with other formats planned for the future.

These two Mini eXchange units are already shipping and are designed for both on-set and facility work, where broadcasters are using lower cost, readily available flat screen HD displays and video walls. They can also be used on film locations for converting SDI signals to HDMI so that what is going through the camera is available for preview.

"You have a $200 solution that allows you to take an SDI signal and put it on a standard monitor from a local retailer and display or preview beautiful HD pictures," saysFrank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne. "That's the strategy for this new MultiDyneAV line. We want to provide affordable solutions that don't compromise quality or reliable performance."
