MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport and routing solutions for broadcast and professional applications, will feature the new MultiDyne Fiber-Saver at Government Video Expo 2010 in Washington, D.C. from Nov. 30 through Dec. 2.
The MultiDyne Fiber-Saver is an innovative solution for combining as many as 18 high definition-serial digital interface (HD-SDI) feeds, or optical signals of any wavelength onto one single-mode fiber. That allows stadiums, arenas and ball fields to increase signal capacity without the need to install more multi-strand fiber optic cables, the company says in a written statement.
Mobile trucks, outside broadcast vans and facility managers can now offer expanded video and audio capacity when hosting major events without having to deal with additional fiber cabling and the associated costs. The MultiDyne Fiber-Saver transport accepts SDI video signals ranging from 270Mbs up to 3Gbs and converts them into optical signals. These signals can then be combined with other optical signals of any wavelength and then transported over one fiber.
“With the ever increasing signal counts at live events as well as corporate facilities, there becomes greater need to increase capacity over existing fiber infrastructure,” says Frank Jachetta, MultiDyne’s managing director. ”The Fiber-Saver allows users to take up to 18 of their existing fiber units and send them down one fiber. Imagine the alternative of running more fiber through an existing stadium or under a city street,” he says. The MultiDyne Fiber-Saver has the capacity to handle any combination up to 18 existing transmitter/receiver or new copper HD-SDI feeds that are then combined and sent over just one single-mode fiber, the company says.
