The What: MultiDyne has introduced The BullDog, a new field fiber transport system that delivers functionality from a compact, rugged enclosure designed to withstand the harsh environments of digital signage, sports and ENG applications. Using The BullDog, professional camera operators can transmit any camera signal, including HD-SDI video, audio, intercom, control data, GPIOs, tally, and power, as well as eight HD-SDI signals in any direction — all from a single fiber cable.

The What Else: The BullDog can transport as many as eight SDI video signals up to 3G HD-SDI uncompressed with embedded or separate program audio. A return video option also supports up to 3G HD-SDI video for viewfinder or other external monitors. In addition, the unit enables operators to achieve camera control/RCP paint functions through one of the three available data channels. An additional back channel is available for camera sync or genlock. Several options are available for optical connectivity including Neutrik opticalCON and Lemo 304M.

The BullDog is capable of operating on a lightweight battery pack, local power, or with remote power over SMPTE hybrid fiber cable utilizing MultiDyne's JUICE power supply. With JUICE built directly into the unit, The BullDog extends an operator's transmission distance, enabling plug-and-play operation and delivery of up to 100 watts of power to 300 meters without requiring local power or batteries. The BullDog also includes power outputs for user accessories.

The Bottom Line:
The system can easily be configured to support a range of existing and next-generation signals, providing operators with a future-proof solution for field fiber transport. To view a demonstration of The BullDog, visit MultiDyne at IBC2013, stand 10.D46b.
