MultiDyne Innovates at the 2015 CCW Show

MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, will demonstrate new features and functionality for its field-tested product line of camera-mounted, rack mountable and standalone audio and video signal transceivers at the 2015 CCW show in New York City. In addition, the company will release a new signal transport module for PTZ camera systems.

The new products and feature enhancements are all part of MultiDyne’s company’s “Fiber First” initiative that will spotlight a range of new and existing products that leverage the convenience and performance benefits of transporting audio, video and communications signals over fiber-optic cable.

Show booth highlights include:

New Gigabit Ethernet and full bandwidth analog/sync for the HD-3500 series of multi-rate SDI video fiber-optic transceivers. The GigE connectivity and new Sync functions help users accurately synchronize multiple cameras when using multiple HD-3500 transceivers during live or studio productions.

With the GigE functionality, users can control PTZ cameras at distances up to 3,000 meters (nearly 2 miles) over a single-mode fiber-optic cable. The new GigE option will also benefit streaming video applications and provides fast transport of signals over local area LANs.

The second new optional feature on the HD-3500GE is Sync, which is ideal for genlocking multiple cameras and having them work in complete synchronization with each other. For those working with analog video, the new Sync option can also be used for prompting.

​MultiDyne’s new Universal HUT

MultiDyne’s new Universal HUT enables the interface of a variety of cameras into a single system, all while providing camera power.

Universal SMPTE HUT

As the latest addition to its line of SMPTE-HUT universal transceivers, MultiDyne will show the innovative “Universal” HUT. The unit is half the size of a traditional HUT system and works with the majority of today’s HD and 4K cameras.

Providing a number of ROI benefits, this new transceiver allows rental houses and those with different cameras to use the same MultiDyne HUT system for any project. The new Universal Hut also doubles as a fiber adaptor power supply that effectively stretches a SMPTE camera chain for miles.

More power and LANC control for SilverBack

MultiDyne will show new features and functionality for its popular SilverBack fiber-optic system that expands the usability of the SilverBack-II with Juice over a SMPTE Hybrid cable.

Among the new features, which will be available in the Spring of 2016, are higher power (increased from 56 to 300 volts) to move signals farther over standard SMPTE Hybrid cable. In addition, users now have the ability to control a variety of cameras from suppliers like Canon and Sony with Local Application Control (LANC) protocol with a simple connection to the LANC port on the SilverBack transceiver. No longer do camera operators need to touch the buttons on the camera itself.

PTZ camera signal transport module

MultiDyne has developed a new fiber-optic video signal transport module as an option for a wide variety of remotely controlled PTZ cameras used in security systems.

The highly compact system includes a transmitter which is seamlessly integrated into the bottom of the camera housing. Then at the monitor point, a MultiDyne HD-3500 receiver converts the incoming HD video back to baseband SDI.

The PTZ camera head system can operate without image degradation with fiber lengths of almost two miles. Users can optionally power the entire system via hybrid cable as well.
