VegasHD Taps Multidyne Fiber for HD Site on ‘Strip’
May 8, 2008
VegasHD has chosen the Multidyne HD-3000 series 3 Gbps SDI video transport link as part of the first permanent HD broadcast studio to be constructed on the Las Vegas Strip. The link will be deployed at one of VegasHD’s locations on The Strip, within the Trader Vic’s night club at the Planet Hollywood Resort Casino—across Las Vegas Boulevard from Bellagio.
VegasHD began operations in Las Vegas (DMA no. 43) several weeks ago, just prior to the NAB Show. Its operations are based upon a mobile HD production facility. (HD Notebook, April 2, 2008).
“This cutting-edge design enables us to provide our clients with the ‘plug and play’ fiber capabilities that they demand,” said Eddie Ferraro, senior vice president of sales for VegasHD. The Multidyne HD-3000 equipment was designed to support 1080p and will provide VegasHD with linkage to multiple venues in Las Vegas. The Multidyne system can accommodate digital signals ranging from 5 Mbps to 3 Gbps.
