MultiDyne is demonstrating enhancements to its camera-mounted fibre transport product family, SilverBACK, which now includes four models.
The versions are: the flagship SilverBACK-II; the SilverBACK-II-L for multicamera production; the SilverBACK-II 4K-L, a feature-rich model that includes Ethernet support and a video option for viewfinder or monitor viewing in the field, enabling camera operators to turn any 4K camera into a true Ultra HD multicamera production; and the SilverBACK II-4K, a low cost model without the viewfinder/monitor viewing option, designed to support traditional film-style productions.
Frank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne, commented: “Other companies came up with this technology and it was great, very innovative, but they made BlackBerry. We have created the iPhone. SilverBACK looks like part of the camera.” Ultra HD support can be added to any existing SilverBACK system through a simple upgrade, enabling customers to deliver a state of the art 4K television experience cost effectively.
