MultiDyne To Introduce 12G Fiber Transport Gear at NAB 2017

Bolstering its support for 4K field and studio productions, MultiDyne will showcase new products with 12Gb/s connectivity, providing increased bandwidth, simpler infrastructures and enhanced connection flexibility.

MultiDyne said the new SilverBack-12G models will add 12Gb/s support to the SilverBack family of camera-mounted transceivers, while FiberSaver-12G optical remapper/multiplexers enable as many as 36 signals of up to 12Gb/s each to be transported over two fibers.

MultiDyne said most 4K production equipment has commonly featured quad-link connectivity, comprising four separate 3Gb/s signals for each 4K feed. Increasing adoption of 12G-SDI interfaces enables 4K video to be transported over a single connection.

“12G is reaching a tipping point,” said Frank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne. “Many people have embraced it, but it’s not yet ubiquitous. Our new 12G capabilities augment our existing capabilities, enabling customers to take advantage of the new benefits with 12Gb/s equipment, but ensuring compatibility with any existing quad-link 4K or HD gear they’re using today.”

SilverBack-12G provides a full-bandwidth fiber optic link between any camera and a production truck or control room. It puts all of the signals needed for multi-camera production – including 12Gb/s, 3Gb/s or 1.5Gb/s video, audio, intercom, camera control, tally, data and more – onto a single tactical or SMPTE hybrid fiber cable.

MultiDyne will also demonstrate the FiberSaver-12G series, bringing 12Gb/s support to the FiberSaver product line. The 1RU FiberSaver-12G rackmount model accepts up to 36 optical signals for transport over two fibers, while five-inch-square portable models offer six or 12 channels.
