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. At InfoComm this morning, Frank Jachetta of MultiDyne introduced the company’s new HDMI-ONE, which takes HDMI video and sound up to distances of 1000 meters on multimode fiber while HDCP data stays intact. 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.

Talk Over People

AUdio-Technica ATCS-60 at InfoComm 09With its newest product (it’s on the booth at 6141) Audio-Technica adds a unique twist on the ubiquitous IR conferencing paradigm.

The new wireless ATCS-60 introduces “automatic mode”, which accepts up to 50 microphone units, running through a “smart” mixer; the mixer turns the mic on and off, depending on whether the person is speaking or not. The mixer allows from one to five people to talk simultaneously, so this obviously makes for a more casual and interactive discussion environment. more…

Automatic Mic Mixing Pioneer at InfoComm

Dan Dugan Model E-1 at InfoComm 09I talked a bit with automatic mic mixer inventor Dan Dugan, and he did a demo of his Model E-1 automatic mic mixer controller. This unit connects to any mixer that has insert patch points and turns it into an eight channel automatic mixer. The operation has gone way past the old mechanical style alogrithms of days gone by. The E-1 shows the gain it’s doing on an LED ladder and keeps a low level background sound constant so there’s no distracting pumping and jumping that you have with lesser auto mixers. Would you expect anything less from the guy who invented the whole concept? The E-1 can be connected in groups of 8 up to 64 channels and no matter if it’s one or several units working, the function is very natural, just like a real, experienced audio guy would handle it.
