MultiDyne Fiber Optic Solutions is set to introduce its new BULLET series (formerly SilverBULLET) of miniature, rugged fiber-optic link products next month. In addition to the 12G-capable BULLET for high-bandwidth video, MultiDyne will make it Dante-enabled — also capable of Ethernet transport.
Shipping soon, MultiDyne’s 12G BULLET solves the problem of high-bandwidth, single-link transport to and from any video source. At only three inches in length, the 12G BULLET connects to the back of any camera, monitor or other video source, with the ability to add more units without additional power cabling. A camera operator with four video outputs can interlock four units together, and support a multichannel production off of a single power supply without the need for multiple wall warts.
The new BULLET for Dante and Ethernet adds another layer of efficiency to field and mobile production teams managing digital audio feeds over long-distances. The common interlocked mounting capability across both products means that users have a quickly scalable and problem-solving option for video, audio and Ethernet feeds in the field. That patented interlocked mounting innovation, along with centralized power distribution, are key differentiators from previous BULLET generations and competitive products.
The 12G BULLET integrates cable equalization and re-clocking techniques to optimize signal integrity across all short- and long-distance transport needs, removing the presence of jitter from existing signals. Integrated OLED monitoring adds value through consistent readings of jitter rates, signal type, optimal power and more. BULLET products are also available with a special 1RU tray capable of housing up to 24 devices, and support 12G SDI rates down to 5Mbps. This makes the BULLET series ideal for virtually any broadcast and AV-related field acquisition need, from high-end sports production and pre-fibered venues to courtesy feeds, confidence monitoring and distance learning.
Here are more detailed specs.
