MultiDyne To Bring Innovations Specific To Video Compression To IBC 2019

News Image
MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions will bring its first innovations specific to video compression to international audiences for the first time at IBC2019, where the fiber transport leader will demonstrate its now-shipping MD9200 range of encoders and decoders.

MultiDyne will be exhibiting at Stand 11.D40 from September 13-17 at RAI Amsterdam.

Ideal for linear broadcast/production and streaming media workflows (notably OTT and IPTV systems), the MD9200 series extends MultiDyne's reach deeper into the signal processing chain. This strengthens MultiDyne’s value proposition as a core supplier of multi-purpose solutions from the content acquisition stage through to the studio/headend delivery point.

"The MD9200 series brings MultiDyne firmly into the compression world, which gives our core customers compelling end-to-end options to encode, compress, transport and deliver live HD, 4K and 8K content when paired with our fiber transport systems," said Frank Jachetta, President, MultiDyne. "We also see many opportunities to expand our customer base with OTT/IPTV and ISPs that require high-end compression for IP-based contribution and distribution applications, and even service digital signage networks and CDNs that exist outside our core broadcast and production markets."

The initial MD9200 series consists of encoders and decoders in stand-alone desktop configurations, and in the popular openGear card module form-factor. All MD9200 series products deliver exceptional bandwidth efficiency while maintaining signal integrity and visual quality. The openGear encoding and decoding modules unlock potential to reach an even broader customer base due to its compatibility with the entire openGear community of infrastructure products.

Both encoder models enable highly secure streaming from one to many destinations, supporting virtually any mix of streaming protocols. Each independent encoder accommodates unique frame size, frame rate, video/audio codecs and data configurations, and can independently encode separately HD and SD streams at high and low bit rates from a single SDI input.

Both decoders optimize 1080P AVC (H.264) and 1080i MPEG-2 compression, with optional support for very high bit-rate 2160P HEVC (H265) UHD streams. When using the OpenGear decoder (MD9200-DEC-OG), customers can house up to 20 decoding modules in a single 2RU openGear chassis for high-density signal de-compression to SDI and HDMI. The standalone MD9200-DEC delivers the same operational benefits and visual quality for point-to-point streaming.

The MD9200 series will provide exceptional value in IP-based contribution applications for news, sports and studio links, according to Jesse Foster, MultiDyne’s Director of Product Development and Western Region Sales. Foster adds that MultiDyne’s engineering team has emphasized network security in the product design, providing systems integrators and IT professionals with peace of mind that their networks and content are safe from outside intrusion. That security, plus an attractive price point and broad feature set, provide outstanding value and flexibility for any customer.
