MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions has broadened its range of 12G and openGear fibre transport solutions with the introduction of its next-generation OG-4600 and FiberSaver solutions.
Both solutions enable broadcast, production and digital cinema customers to efficiently manage and transport higher resolutions and signal counts with streamlined connectivity
The OG-4600 Series is comprised of five purpose-built openGear cards, each of which supports the transport of up to four uncompressed, unprocessed 12G video streams over fibre. Depending on the application, the modularity of the series easily incorporates AES3 and/or analog line-level audio, Ethernet, genlock, GPIO, serial data, tally and/or timecode. All modules are compatible with the industry-standard openGear platform, with SNMP management and cross-network monitoring capabilities using openGear Dashboard software.
“The OG-4600 Series elevates our openGear value proposition through accommodation up to four 12G channels. This provides plenty of headroom for HD and 4K, and even supports 8K video transport in a quad-link configuration with maximum signal integrity,” said Jesse Foster, director of product development, MultiDyne. “The key differentiating factor of the series is its broad application array. Rather than simply transport 12G, we are providing a full-featured camera-to-studio link that provides Ethernet service for teleprompters, audio for intercom, and any other application pertinent to live production.”
The OG-4600 Series adopts the same high-density design philosophy as its predecessor, the OG-3600 Series. Each module is intelligently designed to fit more circuits and information, and brings as many applications and channels onto a single card that were once dispersed across three or more. MultiDyne’s engineering breakthrough ultimately optimises space on each card, reduces the overall weight of each modular chassis.
