MultiDyne To Unleash New Generation Of The Nanobrix Series

News Image
MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems will unleash a new generation of the NanoBrix Series at NAB Show 2024, introducing new functions into the diverse family of miniature signal processing solutions.

MultiDyne will also unveil a completely new NanoBrix product design featuring a ruggedised enclosure, setting the stage for a second rollout phase that will allow users to house and connect multiple NanoBrix devices in a single chassis.

The NanoBrix Series became part of MultiDyne’s product family following a strategic acquisition, adding a broad range of flexible 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion and distribution solutions for managing high densities of analog and digital signals. The original NanoBrix Series includes a range of fibre-optic transceivers, multiplexers/de-multiplexers, distribution amplifiers and audio embedders/de-embedders, most of which will be retained in the new series.

MultiDyne will add new devices to the series over time beginning with a new 12G to HDMI converter at NAB (April 14-17), where MultiDyne exhibits at Booth 7107 in the Las Vegas Convention Centre. The new NB2-12G-HDMI provides a way for broadcast engineers to monitor 5.1 audio streams and downmix the surround signal to 2.0 stereo audio. The device accepts a 12G 4K SDI signal and converts it to HDMI for live confidence monitoring. At the same time, the embedded surround signal is used to provide a L/R multichannel downmix for stereo applications, including television sets and web streams.

MultiDyne will refresh the appearance of the NanoBrix Series beginning with the NB2-12G-HDMI, with MultiDyne’s familiar branding added to brighter orange and black foundational coatings. The NB2-12G-HDMI and other updated NanoBrix products include 5-volt USB/USB-C powering and an accessory cable, along with magnetic mounting capability that makes it easier to conceal devices inside studios and equipment racks. The NB2-SDI-HDMI is also available with a single-channel fibre input and can regenerate the incoming signal for daisy-chained monitors.

Jesse Foster, VP of Products and Western Sales, says that the NB2-12G-HDMI essentially offers the same functionality as the NBX-3G-HDMI-DMX, which broadcasters worldwide use today to monitor and/or downmix HD signals. "This specific product represents the continued expansion of our 12G products for the 4K single-link infrastructure," said Foster, who adds that MultiDyne has also added 12G connectivity and transport to its HoneyBadger bulk fibre transport platform, introduced at NAB Show 2023. "These are problem-solving devices that allow broadcasters to troubleshoot the absence of surround channels in the 5.1 audio mix, or noise issues that result from oddities or artifacts in the stereo downmix."
