April 12, 2011 – MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a premier provider of fiber optic video and audio transports and routing solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, expands its field acquisition product line with the introduction of the SilverBACK, a cost-effective, compact fiber interface that mounts directly to the back of an ENG/EFP camera. HD program video with return HD/SD view finder video, camera control, PL intercom & tally makes the SilverBACK the ideal choice to add to your system for operation over fiber.
The industry-recognized MultiDyne LiGHTBoX field acquisition products provided the impetus to take the next step into camera transport interfaces, according to MultiDyne’s Managing Director, Frank Jachetta. “We have always wanted to close the loop and provide camera-mounted fiber transceivers to allow our customers to select the variation of fiber communications they require”.
The SilverBACK can be linked with the dual Neutrik Opticalcon to the LiGHTBoX, the HalfCuBE or a standard 19”, 1RU rack mount panel. The camera mounted transceiver will operate on DC battery power or a local AC power supply. The SilverBACK and many other MultiDyne products will debut at NAB 2011, Central Hall, Booth C6537.
