HD Fiber In/Out for Drop-and-Repeat with HD and HDMI Outputs for 1.5 G HD Feeds Via Fiber and Copper
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS, SEPTEMBER 10, 2010 â€“ MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a premier provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, will introduce a low-cost, compact, advanced version of its HD-Multi-Link to attendees at this yearâ€™s IBC 2010 (Stand 2.A54).This updated version of the HD-Multi-Link is designed for the drop-and-repeat, daisy-chain optical distribution of SD-SDI and HD-SDI signals on single-mode fiber. It offers full compatibility with SMPTE-compliant HD-SDI products such as the companyâ€™s HD-1500. Applications for the HD-Multi-Link include production monitoring and distribution; announcer booth, event presentation, pool and stadium house feeds; campus distribution; and applications that require the optical drop-and-repeat of HD-SDI with HDMI monitoring capability.
HD-Multi-Link with electro-optical DA provides a mid-point fiber distribution breakout box for one copper HD-SDI output with a signal quality of up to 1.5G HD-SDI. An optical input and optical output transports the signal to the next device. The HD-Multi-Link also provides an HDMI output for local video and audio monitoring. HD-Multi-Link supports audio and data that has been embedded externally and provides for audio de-embedding from the HD-SDI stream for output on HDMI, or on separate RCA connectors.
â€œThe HD-Multi-Link offers a compact and economical solution for the distribution of HD-SDI via fiber and copper in a drop-and-repeat configurationâ€? says Fred Scott, vice president of sales and business development, MultiDyne. â€œThe HDMI output allows the use of inexpensive HDMI monitors instead of costly HD-SDI devices. Fiber is the only choice when transporting high bit rates over long distances. MultiDyne offers the simplest to most sophisticated solutions for all of our customersâ€™ fiber optic transport needs.â€?
SMPTE standards supported by HD-Multi-Link include SMPTE 292M, 1.485 Gbps and SMPTE 259M 270 Mbps.
The portable HD-Multi-Link features a rugged metal housing and is available with ST optical connectors and includes a 5 VDC in-line power supply. External battery operation from 5 to 16 VDC is also supported.
