MultiDyne Accentuates High-Density, Configurable Fiber Transport at IBC2016

MultiDyne will demonstrate a high-density, ultra-flexible and scalable, 4K compatible BullDog fiber transport module plus a 12Gbps FiberSaver fiber transport module.

MultiDyne Video & Fiber announces the availability of two recently-introduced solutions that extend the possibilities of fiber transport and connectivity for broadcast and production applications. In addition to enhancing configurability for users via more modular options, MultiDyne’s new innovations also ensure that users can easily mix and match field and portable enclosures—along with a myriad of modular signal processing functions—for maximum flexibility in the field.

AT IBC2016 MultiDyne will demonstrate the company’s latest innovations for fixed and mobile applications that incorporate exceptional signal density, multi-format compatibility and rugged durability as common tenets. In the fiber transport universe, this means lighter weights, lower costs and flexible architectures for moving video, audio, data and power between two points.

The company will showcase the following innovations at Stand 11.D40:

A new series of openGear modules for high-density audio, video and data signal transport.

An expanded set of portable units, including the high-density, ultra-flexible and scalable BullDog fiber transport system adaptable for field locations lacking infrastructure. And, an expansion of the company's FiberSaver series, which increases signal capacity without additional cabling.

BullDog is a 4K-compatible configuration that can include both a send and receive unit to move signals over a single fiber, or users can transport signals from the field unit to modular openGear cards back at the receive site. The BullDog is especially useful in sports or ENG applications that require signal transport to and from remote locations lacking a supporting video/audio infrastructure. For example, a user can power inject from a truck or studio, drop a BullDog on the sidelines of a football game or anywhere along a golf course. The field engineer simply plugs microphones, cameras and/or support gear into the device to return signals to the receive location.

The BullDog’s modular design allows users to quickly reconfigure signal paths and hot-swap cards. This means that in a BullDog field deployment, users have the freedom to use openGear cards back at the receive location. When used with openGear frames, users also have the option of integrating an openGear-compliant network management system for end-to-end signal monitoring and troubleshooting.

MultiDyne will also unveil a 12Gb/s version of the FiberSaver line. The FiberSaver-12G will accept up 36 optical signals for transport over two fibers, all from a compact 1RU frame. The FiberSaver-12G is also compatible with 3Gb/s and 1.5Gb/s signals providing optimal format flexibility. In addition, all fiber savers will transport any optical, digital signal, regardless of content or format.
