LOCUST VALLEY, NY
â€“ MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a leading provider of fiber optics for the transport of video and audio for broadcast & pro A/V applications, was honored with two prestigious industry awards at the 2008 International Broadcasting Conference (IBC2008) held September 12-16, 2008, in Amsterdam. MultiDyne won Broadcast Engineering magazine’s Pick Hit award and TVBEurope magazineâ€™s Best of IBC award for the LiGHTBoX fiber optic field transport system, which provides a road-ready, robust fiber solution for ENG, sports, and military environments.
â€?Winning these prestigious awards reflects the strength of this fiber transport technology and MultiDyneâ€™s commitment to meeting the specific needs of our customers,â€? said Frank Jachetta, senior vice president of sales & operations for MultiDyne. â€œWe are focused on providing fiber solutions for any requirement, including field and harsh-environment applications.â€?
With a 24-year history, the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit awards are the industry’s longest-running new product technology awards. An anonymous panel of Broadcast Engineering readers, who are working professionals in the broadcast, post and network and satellite industries, selected the winners.
For the last four years, TVBEurope, Europe’s market-leading television technology magazine, has produced the Best of IBC Awards, where their editorial team recognizes the most innovative new products at IBC. They especially looked for new products that clearly show the potential to make money, or save money, for end users (rather than clever technology for technology’s sake).
Unveiled at IBC2008, the LiGHTBoX addresses the need for fiber transport in field and harsh-environment applications. Ideal for ENG, sports and military customers, the LiGHTBoX has both AC and DC power operation with battery back-up, and is fully customizable, offering virtually any signal configuration. This road-ready, robust fiber solution can be linked via a tactical fiber cable or any pigtail-type connector to another LiGHTBoX or MultiDyne terminal products. One configuration of the LiGHTBoX handles the JVC multi-core connector for the camera CCU.
