Multidyne intros fiber optic transport technology at NAB
The Multidyne fiber system reduces equipment costs, simplifies design and maintains uncompressed, digital, broadcast quality video from end to end.
Multidyne has developed patent-pending solutions for the transport and distribution of uncompressed video, audio and data over fiber. The new technology is designed to simplify the architecture of a fiber optic network; reduce equipment costs; simplify design; and maintain uncompressed, digital, broadcast quality video from end to end.
The fiber transport system reduces the equipment required at the central node from 8-to 10RU to 1- or 2RU. A fiber head is used at the source location to encode the video, audio and data onto one fiber. At the central location the 16 fiber optic receivers and two TDM circuits are combined into the Fiber Hub, which supports up to 16 fiber optic inputs from up to 16 video fiber head units. The Fiber Hub unit has one high-speed fiber optic output for the main fiber trunk.
Signal quality is maintained by digitizing once. The video audio and data signals are digitized once at the Fiber Head and then are decoded back to an analog signal at the Fiber Receiver Hub.
