MultiDyne launches fiber extender for live POV
MultiDyne, a leading provider of fiber-optic-based video and audio transport solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, launched ProGo, a powerful new fiber extender that increases the transmission distance for fixed, live point-of-view (POV) camera applications and is designed by MultiDyne for use with GOPRO products. Utilizing ProGo, camera operators can cost-effectively bypass the distance limitations of HDMI over copper cable, achieving a distance of 1 km.
“Our ProGo fiber extender makes inexpensive, live POV a reality for camera operators,” says Frank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne. “Through its small, lightweight form factor, ProGo provides users with an easy-to-use, cost-effective plug-and-play solution capable of delivering live video from hard to reach locations such as a basketball backboard or ski jump.”
ProGo is designed by MultiDyne for use with GOPRO cameras. The small, unobtrusive enclosure can be discreetly mounted alongside a camera and communicates with a fixed receiver located at the video destination. Adapter cables and dual power supplies are included.
