MultiDyne Pioneers Uncompressed Signal Networking And Control Over Fiber

Comprehensive Fiber-Optic Network Control And Signal Distribution At The Touch Of A Button.
Publish date:

Hauppauge, NY—At IBC 2015 (Stand 9.D40) MultiDyne© Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a leader in fiber-optic signal transport, will unveil FiberNet™, a reliable and highly affordable way to efficiently manage and control an entire fiber-optic based production environment via software. It’s a real-time uncompressed optical networking topology that takes advantage of fiber infrastructures and can interconnect multiple (and disparately located) nodes for managing, controlling and distributing all types of uncompressed signals from one centralized location to an on-site production crew as well as those located literally anywhere in the world.

The new MultiDyne FiberNet software platform is equally beneficial for live production, studio shows as well as post-production facilities, resulting in the unlimited flexibility to send and receive signals to and from anywhere, and significantly less equipment cost. All control data, audio and video is sent over a single, highly reliable fiber cable and reaches out to all desired devices.

“We look at the new FiberNet platform as a mission control station for all types of video productions,” said Frank Jachetta, President of MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, adding that FiberNet is basically a universal electrical-to-optical device (cameras, routers, etc.) control system with far-reaching implications. “Never has any vendor provided such comprehensive control over fiber at such an affordable price. Think of FiberNet as being a completely controllable, bi-directional signal transport network over fiber that can accommodate every aspect of a live production or postproduction workflow.”

Professionals can control devices installed on the patented FiberNet network using MultiDyne’s control software, or they can use their own control platform of choice, to monitor, manage and control dozens or even hundreds of bi-directional signals coming to and from an on-site production truck or a studio control room. Much more than simple point-to-point links, FiberNet allows the user to send any incoming signal to any output or even to multiple outputs, with the touch of a button or click of a computer mouse.

Imagine being able to paint and control multiple cameras prior to an outdoor shoot from a single CPU base station over a fiber-optic network. Users would save cost and set-up time, while having the ability to remotely control and change the parameters of any piece of equipment tied to a fiber network. It’s like sitting in a cockpit and having all of the features and capabilities at your fingertips—via either a tactile push-button controller or a software-based graphic user interface. Either way, the configuration flexibility and device control is all in the hands of a single operator.

This could include routing and controlling the parameters of a camera via the MultiDyne SilverBack© 4K5 camera-mounted transceiver for quad-link cameras or a MultiDyne SMPTE HUT camera power transceiver, and the ability to route, control and distribute any MultiDyne fiber product, as well as those from other manufacturers. By adhering to industry-standard control protocols, FiberNet allows users to stay with their current control platforms, such as those from Evertz, Grass Valley, Snell and many more.

We’re talking about a network that uses our FiberNet proprietary control software, or your own control platform of choice, to monitor, manage and control dozens or even hundreds of bi-directional signals coming to and from an on-site production truck or a studio control room. It’s much more than simple point-to-point links. FiberNet allows the user to send any incoming signal to any output or even to multiple outputs.

FiberNet includes control software, a hardware or software control panel and the all of standards support “mission critical” applications require on a patented hardware platform. It can even control multiple routers, extending its reach and capabilities beyond a single matrix switch. And the best part: MultiDyne’s innovative networking system allows users to enjoy the benefits of a fully networked audio and video distribution and control infrastructure connected via fiber-optic cable.
