MultiDyne adds sync and Ethernet control to HD-3500
MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems has added new features to its existing line of HD-3500 Series Multi-rate Serial Digital Video Fiber-Optic Transceivers that help professionals convert and distribute the signals used to remotely control PTZ cameras from a far distance and also those that help users accurately synchronise multiple cameras during a live or studio productions. Even with the new features, the new HD-3500GE is still compact, rugged and rack-mountable.
The first new feature of the HD-3500GE is Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), which can be leveraged to control pan tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras from up to 3,000 meters (nearly 2 miles) over a single-mode fiber-optic cable. The new GigE option will also benefit streaming video applications and the fast transport of signals over a local area network (LAN).
The second new optional feature on the HD-3500GE is Sync, which is ideal for genlocking multiple cameras and having them work in complete synchronisation with each other. For those working with analog video, the new Sync option can also be used for Teleprompter.
“We continue to expand the HD-35000 Series of rack-mountable fiber transceivers with new features that customers have requested or ones that we feel give new life to the product line,” said Frank Jachetta, President of MultiDyne. “These products have been used in a myriad of ways and with these new optional features, we expect them to be used in ever more creative ways.”
