MultiDyne Launches “Systemized” Live Production Solution For Red Cameras

MultiDyne’s popular SilverBack 4K5 transceiver is now available for (and is fully compatible with) RED Digital Cinema’s RED EPIC camera (with 6K DRAGON sensor) and REDCAST Module.

MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems has announced that its popular SilverBack 4K5 transceiver is now available for (and is fully compatible with) the RED EPIC (with 6K DRAGON sensor) camera and REDCAST Module from RED Digital Cinema. The interface will support a variety of live and studio production applications around the world.

RED’s 6K DRAGON sensor can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Its unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipses 35mm film in both latitude and image density, enabling a customer to capture HD/4K while simultaneously acquiring 6K raw data.

To accommodate the higher resolution inherent with 4K, Ultra High-Definition and higher resolution images, the Multidyne SilverBack 4K5 provides camera operators with power and five 3 Gb/s HD/SDI signal paths between an EPIC camera and the camera's base station.

This powerful and highly complementary combination gives camera operators a highly flexible design that provides all of the necessary communications, camera control, tally, data and other functions of a fully featured camera system. It also allows the user to interchange RED cameras with the same MultiDyne SilverBack transceiver, enabling signals to travel long distances over a SMPTE fiber cabling infrastructure.

“RED has really made a name for itself in the digital cinema market, where our products are also sold into. They now are having success in live sports and entertainment projects where powerful single-sensor cameras are often found. We’re happy to have a solution that pairs up so well with RED’s camera systems. The combination creates a very reliable, affordable solution for a whole new range of customers.”
Frank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems

By putting power and five 3 Gb/s HD/SDI signal paths between the camera and base station (required for multi-camera 4K/UHD TV production) onto a single tactical or SMPTE hybrid fiber cable, the MultiDyne SilverBack 4K5 system ensures robust, trouble-free connectivity, regardless of the application. 

The SilverBack 4K5 Base Station comes in a standard 1RU enclosure with LED status indicators for each signal, as well as a color LCD screen that intuitively displays system status and general health.
