Belton High School, the 5A public high school north of Austin, TX, is using MultiDyne's new SilverBACK-II with JUICE camera-mounted fiber transport system to broadcast sports games, performing arts productions and other events.

MultiDyne's SilverBACK-II with JUICE features a robust power supply that enables the students to transmit camera signals over fiber at a distance of up to 985ft meters away without the use of local power or batteries, simplifying broadcast production.

SilverBACK-II with JUICE allows the high school to support a live multi-camera remote production environment by transmitting a variety of high-quality camera signals, including HD-SDI video.

Prior to implementing the solution, Belton High School students were isolated to recording within each camera and editing material after the event. SilverBACK-II with JUICE allows the high school to support a live multi-camera remote production environment by transmitting a variety of high-quality camera signals — including HD-SDI video, audio, intercom, control data, GPIOs, tally and power — over a single hybrid copper and fiber cable from remote locations around the school to a production studio for real-time editing.

The video broadcasts are used by a local TV station and Tiger Productions, the Belton High School student production group, which provides video production services for 12 schools within the district.
