MultiDyne to show expanded channel capacity for mux line

The company’s latest products provide new capability that dramatically extends the number of uncompressed SDI signals an operator can now transport over single-mode fiber.

At CCW 2012, MultiDyne will showcase its comprehensive range of fiber-optic-based video and audio transport solutions designed specifically for pro A/V and broadcast applications. New to the show are 12- and 18-channel versions of both MultiDyne's HD-6000/HD-6000-ONE CWDM multiplexer and FS-6000 Fiber-Saver portable CWDM remapper/multiplexer. This new capability dramatically extends the number of uncompressed SDI signals an operator can now transport over single-mode fiber. Additionally, MultiDyne will perform live demonstrations of the company's new SilverBACK-II with JUICE camera-mounted fiber transport system and SMPTE-HUT hybrid universal transceiver.

The new HD-6000 and HD-6000-ONE CWDM multiplexing solution is now available in 12- and 18-channel versions. Utilizing the powerful HD trunking solution, users can transport up to six HD-SDI signals per single-mode fiber, making it the most portable and easy-to-use platform for transmitting multiple high-bandwidth signals in harsh operating environments. Designed for OB, fixed facility link, cross-campus network, and centralized control room applications, the HD-6000 and HD-6000-ONE systems optimize transmission anywhere SDI signals need to be trunked—offering users a compact, cost-effective, multichannel solution for extending SDI transport. Leveraging the HD-6000-ONE, users can input up to six digital signals with data rates of up to 3Gb/sec.

The signals are received and then retransmitted at specific CWDM wavelengths and launched into a CWDM mux. The resultant signal travels down a single fiber to the receiver unit where the SDI signals are restored. Because the signals are remapped and retransmitted, users can realize a new optical budget and increased range.

MultiDyne will also show its new SMPTE-HUT Hybrid Universal Transceiver, which is now shipping to customers. The SMPTE-HUT is designed to increase the transmission distances of HD cameras that can be distance-limited by hybrid copper/fiber cabling, this high-performance, cost-effective transport system is ideal for remote broadcasting, sports, shared control rooms, campus facilities, and arena and stadium applications. The SMPTE-HUT cost effectively enables full camera operation in even the most rugged broadcasting environments, extending transmission ranges up to 10 km on just two single-mode fibers.
