Multidyne intros optical fibre converters
MultiDyne Video & Fibre Optic Systems is introducing a new line of 3G/HD/SDI/ASI -to- optical fibre converters at IBC that facilitate the automatic conversion and transport of SDI, HD-SDI, and 3Gb/s SDI signals over distances up to 10 km using readily available, fibre-optic cable.
The high-quality HD-3000-II products leverage new OLED technology and a menu driven systems for control and configuration, to create cutting edge products that are ideal for image processing and display of single and multiple signals from adjacent and remote locations for broadcast, professional video and government applications.
Consisting of six new modules, the new HD-3000-II family provides customers with a choice of LC, ST, FC or SC connectors, depending on the converter model selected. MultiDyne’s HD-3000-II converters are compliant with all SMPTE specifications and are housed in a rugged enclousure that stands up to daily production, both in the studio and in the field.
“We’ve identified a variety of applications where high-quality video is required over long distances in a flexible and reliable way,” says Frank Jachetta, Managing Director, MultiDyne. “The new HD-3000-II product line address a number of signal conversion applications and does so in a highly cost-effective way. Customers should not have to pay for features they don’t need, yet as their needs increase, they should have access to new capabilities found across a common product line. The new HD-3000-II accomplishes all that and more.”
The HD-3000-II line offers the flexibility to convert HDSDI signals to optical fibre and output them as single or dual HDSDI feeds. Dual-channel models allow the conversion of two channels, making them ideal for 3D, dual-link HDSDI, or two completely independent HDSDI channels. SD, HD, and 3G signals can be intermixed in any combination. Also, the HD-3000-II converters offer electrical isolation that eliminates ground loop problems.
New HD-3000-II Models include: – HD-3000-2TX: Dual channel HDSDI to Fibre converter – HD-3000-2RX: Dual channel Fibre to HDSDI converter – HD-3000-1TX: Single channel HDSDI to Fibre converter with looping HDSDI output – HD-3000-1RX: Single channel Fibre to HDSDI converter with dual HDSDI outputs – HD-3000-TRX: HDSDI/Fibre transceiver – HD-3000-DR: Single channel HDSDI in, Single channels HDSDI optical out with two BNC HDSDI outputs, for drop and repeat application.
MultiDyne is also making a variety of accessories available for the HD-3000-II product line, such as a Universal power supply, rack mount bracket and 4-pin XLR power cable.
