NAB 2012: MultiDyne To Showcase HUT, Will Team Up With Inflexion
MultiDyne Video and Fiber Optic Systems will showcase its FS-6000 Portable “Fiber-Saver” and SMPTE Hybrid Universal Transceiver. The FS-6000, which solves the problem of too many signals and not enough fibers, will accept six independent digital signals up to 3gb/sec each on either coax or optical fiber. It then receives the signals and re-transmits them into a CWDM mux. The receiver de-muxes the signals and presents them on either ST’s or BNC’s. This product is ideal for rental and OB companies that often need to get “more” onto “less”.
SMPTE – HUT (Hybrid Universal Transceiver)
SMPTE hybrid cables have changed the way we do television but sometimes your camera position is simply too far away. The SMPTE –HUT allows users to use Sony, Ikegami, Panasonic, Grass Valley or Hitachi camera systems at distances simply not possible with hybrid cables. These small units convert the SMPTE cable into two plain singlemode fibers and permit full camera power, operation and control at distances of up to 10km.
Inflexion Design’s foundation draws from the design skills of Eugene Baker, previously co-founder and CTO of Telecast, combined with Solid Camera co-founder Carlos Acosta’s real-world, on-set expertise in digital cinema and industrial design and the vision of MultiDyne president and fiber-optic innovator Frank Jachetta. The union will allow MultiDyne to provide camera operators with innovative new solutions that are elegant in design while offering improved workflow and operational ease of use. The new high-performance, fiber-optic-based camera accessories are designed to appeal to a wide range of applications — from broadcast television stations to 3D cinematographers.
“Inflexion Design integrates the best aspects of creative design from Solid Camera with MultiDyne’s high-quality fiber-optic products,” said Baker. “Our combined knowledge, experience, and vision allow us to create extraordinary product functionality and reliability not currently available in the industry.”
“Inflexion Design combines Carlos’ innovative approach to design with Eugene’s bleeding-edge creativity and the 35-year track record of MultiDyne, to create a union that is more than the sum of its parts,” said Jachetta.
“Inflexion Design will resolve many of the frustrations camera operators often experience in the field,” said Acosta. “Unique, intuitive designs and powerful electronic functionality allow us to package very complex technology into compelling, simple-to-use solutions for creative environments.”
