At the forthcoming NAB Show, MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions will expand its LightBrix range of compact, rugged fibre transport products with the new VB-3600 Series.
The VB-3600 Series provides broadcasters and content producers with eight throwdown or mountable options to serve a diversity of signal configurations, including 12G, 4K and 1080p video; and embedded audio, Ethernet and control.
With its compact architecture (7.25×5.75×1.75 inches), the VB-3600 Series is built for users that need a lightweight throwdown system that is convenient to move around in the field; or an unassuming system for simple mounting to a tripod or a wall. Each unit meets specific connectivity needs across video, audio and data – including 12G single-link and 4K quad-link.
At the top of the new VB-3600 range, the VB-3607 provides a cost-effective solution for transmission of 4K video or four 1080p, HD, SD and/or ASI signal paths over one single-mode fibre-optic cable. It is also capable of handling SDI rates from 5Mb/s all the way up to 3Gb/s (1080p) uncompressed.
Although the VB-3600 Series offers set configurations, MultiDyne can deliver a standard build of any signal count and combination. The VB-3600 is essentially a small card cage that allows any combination of cards, and facilitates any combination of signals. For additional flexibility in the field, all VB-3600 units include mounts for battery power – an important benefit for production locations lacking local power connectivity.
“You can imagine a mobile production truck or temporary studio built for a special event, each of which are challenged with managing multiple signals through an infrastructure that is already very diverse,” said Frank Jachetta, president, MultiDyne. “While the VB-3600 offers a compact receive solution, our customers can further slimdown their infrastructure by leveraging the OG-3600 modules. Above all, it’s the industry’s broadest portfolio and highest signal density across complementary send and receive units.”
