NEWS MOVE & DELIVER Fibre transport Video delivery Mobile TV production company TNDV has bought MultiDyne’s SMPTE-HUT universal camera transceiver to support its fi bre transport and signal integrity requirements for live and recorded productions. MultiDyne’s SMPTE- HUT is designed to extend transmission distances of HD cameras limited by hybrid copper/fi ber cable up to 10km using two single-mode fi bers.
