MultiDyne To Showcase SilverBack V At IBC Show

News Image
MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions is to display its new camera-mounted fiber transport solution, SilverBack V, at IBC 2018 (Stand 11.D40) to mark its European debut.

The industry's first 12G- and 4K-capable camera-back system to incorporate an IP output, the SilverBack V enables the convergence of fiber and IP-based production workflows while building on the flexibility and robustness of the SilverBack family.

MultiDyne's extensive range of SilverBack camera-back transceivers are well-known for simplifying infrastructures, enhancing connection flexibility and providing the high-bandwidth performance needed by Ultra HD formats. SilverBack V adds to this powerful fiber transport foundation by integrating an IP Gateway into the SilverBack V base station, enabling users to deliver content to studios and mobile production vehicles over both SDI and IP network connectivity.

"While point-to-point transport over dark fiber continues to offer the greatest bandwidth efficiencies for the high data rates needed in live 4K and 8K productions, the adoption of IP-based networks in broadcast and production workflows is accelerating," said Frank Jachetta, president, MultiDyne. "SilverBack V seamlessly converges the advantages of fiber transport with a gateway to multipoint IP networking, protecting customers' long-term investments while delivering immediate, practical benefits today."

In addition to its future-friendly IP capabilities, SilverBack V also brings a wealth of new features and benefits to fiber users in markets ranging from electronic newsgathering (ENG) and live sports coverage to motion picture productions and other remote contribution applications. SilverBack V supports both single-link 12G and quad-link 3G SDI connectivity, maximising 4K Ultra HD signal interface flexibility.
 
The SilverBack V base station supports two camera heads simultaneously, enabling cost-effectiveness and space savings. A built-in multiviewer provides live monitoring of both camera feeds, with audio monitoring available as an option.
 
The space-efficiency of the dual-camera base station is paralleled by the reduced width of the SilverBack V camera-back unit, which makes it the most compact unit in the SilverBack family to date. The significantly narrower design enables a much lighter camera-back load and eases operator mobility while still ensuring proper overall weight balance between the camera-back, body and lens. MultiDyne is also working closely with camera vendors including Sony, Panasonic, Canon, JVC and more to develop specific SilverBack V designs tailored to the connection points, colour, texture and ergonomics of each camera.
 
In addition to supporting 12Gbp/s and 3Gbp/s connections, SilverBack V also combines 1.5Gb/s video, audio, intercom, camera control, tally, data and power onto a single tactical cable, SMPTE hybrid fiber cable, and/or IP network connection. Integrated expansion slots support a variety of interchangeable I/O connectivity modules for frictionless interoperability with other MultiDyne fiber transport systems and third-party products.

MultiDyne will demonstrate the SilverBack V at IBC2018 from September 14-18 at the RAI Convention and Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam.
