multidyne-silverbullet.JPG MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a premier provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport and routing solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, is loading up UK’s One Box Television with its SilverBULLET™ Mini 3G HD/SDI fiber optic link. One Box Television, an innovative UK multi camera gallery facilities rental company, purchased the extremely lightweight, tiny transmitter and receiver modules through MultiDyne’s exclusive distributor in the UK, Bright Space Technologies.

With recent rentals to premier broadcast networks including the BBC, West End Productions and large corporations like Sony, One Box Television was looking to upgrade its equipment to further incorporate the most sophisticated HD solutions on the market into its custom-made, “One Box” broadcast rental system. As the system is used for remote productions, One Box Television selected the SilverBULLET 3G fiber optic links for their ability to transport 3G signals over long distances on a single mode of fiber, their ease of portability and their extremely compact size.

“By combining the SilverBULLET modules with our other technology, the on-camera boxes now allow full vision control of HD cameras over 100 metres, as well as feeding time code, talkback and reverse vision,” says Richard Stevenson, founder of One Box Television. “The product revolutionizes the stability of our pictures, and has allowed much longer cable runs than were previously available to us over coax cable.”

Designed for quick and easy installation, the SilverBULLET supports transmission across SMPTE 424M 2.97 Gbps, SMPTE 292M 1.485 Gbps and SMPTE 259M 270 Mbps standards regardless of format. The transmitter modules also include equalization for long lengths of coaxial cable, further easing the installation process as users can incorporate the SilverBULLET at any point in the HD/SDI chain. With error free pathological pattern operation, low system jitter and embedded audio support, the SilverBULLET provides a typical link distance of up to 30 km (18.6 miles).

“The SilverBULLET is an ideal addition to London’s One Box Television’s existing custom rental package,” says Frank Jachetta, senior vice president of sales and operations for MultiDyne. “We’re pleased that companies from around the world look to Bright Space Technologies and MultiDyne to provide state-of-the-art equipment for their system upgrades, and as rental companies look for new ways to stay ahead of their competitors in 2010, they can rely on our full product line to provide the most cost-effective, reliable and long-lasting products on the market.”
