MultiDyne’s Silverback Camera-Mounted Fiber-Optic Transport Debuts at NAB Show

MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems expands its field-acquisition product line with 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, and tally make the SilverBACK suitable to add to a system for operation over fiber.

MultiDyne’s LiGHTBoX field-acquisition products provided the impetus to take the next step into camera transport interfaces, according to 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 via the dual Neutrik Opticalcon to the LiGHTBoX, the HalfCuBE, or a standard 19-in., 1RU rack-mount panel. The camera-mounted transceiver operates on DC battery power or a local AC power supply. The SilverBACK is on display in Booth C6537, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center.
