Solution Extends an Analog 10MHz Reference Signal and a 33Mb/s ASI Data Stream (BTS) Over Two Fibers
LOCUST VALLEY, NY – MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a leading provider of fiber optics for the transport of video and audio for broadcast & pro A/V applications, Sterling do Brasil, a leading Brazilian equipment dealer, and RPC (Rede Paranaense de Comunicacao S.A), an independent Brazilian TV Network, have leveraged their expertise to create a complete fiber optic transport solution for studio-to-transmitter (STL) links. The ANDIG-2500-BR will be introduced at the 2008 International Broadcasting Conference (IBC) being held September 12-16, 2008, in Amsterdam (Stand 2.A54).
“MultiDyne, Sterling do Brasil, and RPC have collaborated on designing and developing this unique product to specifically address the requirements of studio to transmitter fiber links in a cost-effective, and space-efficient manner,” said Bob McAlpine, vice president of global sales and business development for MultiDyne.
“MultiDyne understood the needs of our customers and was quick to partner with Sterling do Brasil and RPC to develop a product that would effectively meet their unique requirements,” said Nestor Almeida, director for Sterling do Brasil. “We are pleased to collaborate with them to provide this practical fiber solution.”
The ANDIG-2500-BR (transmitter or receiver) is a 1RU complete fiber optic transport solution for extending a pure analog 10MHz sinusoidal reference signal, and an ASI, SMPTE 33Mb/s data stream over two fibers. Typically used for studio–to-transmitter or studio–to-studio links, the 1RU frame houses two power supplies in both the transmitter and receiver units, providing full power redundancy on both sides. The ASI 33Mb/s data stream transmitter input has 2 BNC connectors offering a convenient loop through feature. The analog section has front panel adjustments for gain, and up to 300m of EQ. The input impedance can be set to 50 ohm or 75 ohm impedance. Both the transmitter and receiver have video and optical front panel status indicators with dry alarm relay contacts. The ANDIG-2500-BR receiver has a dual output for the 33Mb/s data stream, with SMPTE reclocking and EQ.
