MultiDyne's integration and event rental partner, CP Communications, provided the MultiDyne HD-1500 HD-SD1 Fiber Links for the Super Bowl XLII halftime show.
FOX Sports transport of HD-SDI signals via fiber between the halftime production trucks and FOX Network trucks. The on-air and HD camera feeds of the halftime show were sent via the MultiDyne HD-1500 HD-DSI fiber link, as well as the signals from the halftime production truck back into the stadium. HD-1500 units were also used to light up the halftime LED Curtains and the House Jumbotrons in the stadium.
