FiberNet, a reliable way to manage and control an entire fibre optic-based production environment via software, has been unveiled by MultiDyne.
The product is a realtime uncompressed optical networking topology. It takes advantage of fibre infrastructures and can interconnect multiple, and disparately located, nodes for managing, controlling and distributing all types of uncompressed signals from one centralised location to an on-site production crew, as well as those located anywhere in the world.
Said Frank Jachetta, president at MultiDyne: “Uncompressed full bandwidth video, audio and data provides the best of both worlds; you have the flexibility of an IP network but with no latency, and it’s simple to use for operators.”
The MultiDyne FiberNet software platform is equally beneficial for live production, studio shows as well as post production facilities, resulting in the flexibility to send and receive signals to and from anywhere, and significantly less equipment cost, claimed the company.
On the system, Jachetta said: “Where the magic happens is in our control. It works not only with our software, but with other controls. Our system can be controlled by other manufacturer’s’ controls and vice versa, which is a big deal.”
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.
