MultiDyne to Introduce LightBrix VB-3800 at 2017 NAB Show

On the heels of announcing its LightBrix VB-3600 of throwdown units, MultiDyne will announce at the 2017 NAB Show a second new LightBrix Series, the VB-3800, which includes a set of modules and adapters to support connectivity across the most popular field production cameras.

MultiDyne said the VB-3800 Series can incorporate additional modules, allowing it to meet the specifications of new camera models as they come to market.

The VB-3800 Series offers several models built for mounting to POV box cameras and robotic PTZ heads, with models initially supporting between six and 24 fiber transport connections for video, audio, data and Ethernet.

Each model can transport a complement of multichannel camera signals, including 4K quad-link and 12G, as well as optional supply power from the base unit to the transmitter and camera via SMPTE hybrid cable. This enables flexible setup, strike and mobility by ensuring the entire camera position is free of power outlets.

The main value proposition of the VB-3800 Series, MultiDyne said, revolves around its adaptability of signal type and count for both new and existing camera models.

The LightBrix VB-3800 Series will also evolve to accommodate UHD scaling and signal conversions as the product line expands, including conversions of 4K quad-link input signals to 12G and HDMI at the output.
