Multidyne FiberNet brings new flexibility to fiber connectivity
Multidyne’s FiberNet system was one of a handful of innovations the company introduced at NAB designed to bring a new level of flexibility to fiber optical networks. The system can connect multiple fiber notes via patented technology designed to exploit Multidyne’s ability to network full bandwidth, uncompressed video nodes.
“Through a mission control a user can drop a signal anywhere on the network,” says Frank Jachetta, Multidyne, president. “It offers the freedom of a full, uncompressed IT network that can manage point-to-point fiber connections. And then there is management of the wavelengths within those fibers that allows for massive capacity for hundreds of channels.”
Jachetta adds that a key feature is that the control system can stand on its or, thanks to compatibility with other systems, turn control of the network to systems from manufacturers like ProBel, Evertz, Grass Valley and any other automation system.
“It’s not married to Multidyne,” he says.
The system can also be coupled with Multidyne’s “Universal” Hybrid Universal Transceiver (HUT) which is half the size of a traditional HUT system and works with the vast majority of SMPTE high-definition and 4K cameras on the market today. Providing a number of ROI benefits, this new transceiver allows rental houses and users of different cameras to use the same MultiDyne HUT system for any project. Previously, users had to pick a dedicated MultiDyne system for the specific camera they were using.
