AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a premier provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport and routing solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, is introducing Fiber-Comms, a four-wire optical extender designed for intercom lines to the European market at IBC 2009 (Stand 2.A54). This advanced fiber optic extender seamlessly transports from one to eight intercom or IFB channels and can also transport control and signaling data.
Addressing the three key areas sought after by professionals in the A/V and broadcast industries, Fiber-Comms allows for greater data transport, over a lighter fiber cable and for a longer distance. When used in conjunction with the MultiDyne COMMS-2000 two-wire to four-wire converter, Fiber-Comms can extend a two-wire system. It is also a cost-effective integrated component for the LiGHTBoX™ field portable fiber optic transport system.
“Fiber-Comms allows for easy integration with the other products in MultiDyne’s innovative fiber optic solution line,” says Frank Jachetta, senior vice president of sales and operations. “Customers can order the Fiber-Comms extender with an XLR pigtail for configuration with the Clear-Com®, Studio Technologies® and RTS systems®, giving our users even more options for serial data transport over greater distances.”
The Fiber-Comms four-wire extender handles 24-bit audio flat from 20 to 20 KHz, a key feature that does not color the audio. It also has an S/N greater than 90 dB and a THD less than 0.05%. An optical budget of up to 24dB for single-mode further enhances the product’s audio capabilities. An optional eight separate intercom channels can also be used.
Fiber-Comms includes an XLR cable with a four-wire XLR input and output and is available in portable and rack-mount configurations.
