MultiDyne Silverback Fiber Interface Debuts at NAB

MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems expands its field acquisition product line with the introduction of the Silverback, a cost-effective, compact fiber interface that mounts directly to the back of an ENG/EFP camera. HD program video with return HD/SD view finder video, camera control, PL intercom & tally makes the Silverback a strong option for fiber needs, according to the company.

The industry-recognized MultiDyne Lightbox field acquisition products provided the impetus to take the next step into camera transport interfaces, according to MultiDyne’s Managing Director, Frank Jachetta. “We have always wanted to close the loop and provide camera-mounted fiber transceivers to allow our customers to select the variation of fiber communications they require.”

The Silverback can be linked with the dual Neutrik Opticalcon to the Lightbox, the HalfCube or a standard 19-inch, 1RU rack mount panel. The camera mounted transceiver will operate on DC battery power or a local AC power supply.
