MultiDyne Announces Partnership for openGear

LOCUST VALLEY, NY--MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems announced their partnership with Ross Video and participation in the openGear terminal equipment platform group.

MultiDyne has developed the HD-3500 Multi-rate 3G HD-SDI fiber optic transceiver circuit card for its first product offering in the openGear platform. “We are excited to be a part of this consortium of vendors,” said Jim Jachetta, SVP of engineering for MultiDyne. “The diversity of solutions for openGear provides the customer with the best of all worlds in a very dense and well controlled frame.

The MultiDyne HD-3500 multiplexes 3G HD-SDI signals up to 1.5Gb/sec or 3.0Gb/sec plus 4 Audio or 2 AES Audio, and bi-directional data over a single fiber. Providing either a 1080i product, or a 1080p product presents a cost effective choice for the customer, said Bob McAlpine, vice president of global sales and business development. The HD-3500 HD card provides looping, equalized inputs, and reclocked dual outputs plus the openGear, standard 5-year warranty.” We believe it adds certifiable value to applications of the overall system.

The openGear terminal equipment platform is based on an open architecture, 2RU modular frame designed to accommodate up to 10 cards in the DFR-8310 frame and up to 20 cards in the DFR-8320 frame. A wide variety of cards are available from terminal equipment vendors supporting the openGear platform, allowing facilities the freedom and flexibility to choose the best technology for their particular applications.
