MultiDyne Introduces HDMI over Fiber Gear

MultiDyne HDMI-ONEAs wonderful as HDMI has been so far, one of its real weak points has been the inability for it to span any serious distance.

Frank also showed the new SilverBullet 3G Fiber Link, an economical solution for taking SDI and HD-SDI signals for a long ride on single-mode fiber. Also on hand from MultiDyne was the new HDSDI Repeater/Transport and HDSDI Fan Out DA with HDMI and Audio monitoring.
