MultiDyne Video & Fiber Unveils DVI-ONE-E

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, has unveiled DVI-ONE-E, a low-cost solution that allows either DVI or HDMI to operate over ONE fiber.

At InfoComm 2010, company officials said MultiDyne Video is a cost-effective solution designed to extend DVI and HDMI distance limitations and is the first to offer users bi-directional communication over ONE fiber for full HDCP copyright and EDID functionality.

In responses to the need for high-resolution graphics and video image transfer over long distances, MultiDyne's DVI-ONE-E focuses on maximizing visual quality, with pixel-for-pixel image transport, a 100 percent 24-bit scan rate and no contouring or bit reduction.

Also, fully uncompressed DVI-D or HDMI signal is transported over ONE fiber supporting WUXGA up to 1920×1200 and is 100 percent transparent with no frame dropping.

The DVI-ONE-E, company officials said, supports DVI and HDMI signals with the use of a cable adaptor. MultiDyne's DVI-ONE-E also responds to market demand for a locking HDMI-connector, seamlessly transporting the HDCP and EDID information along with the HDMI or DVI video signal.

"The transport of DVI and HDMI copyright protected material continues to be very important for the A/V, home theater and permanent installation markets," said Frank Jachetta (News - Alert), managing director, MultiDyne.

Jachetta said that with the DVI-ONE-E, installers can now send video from a central DVD or Blu-ray player to a monitor or display to distances of up to 1000 meters away - and most importantly, over a single fiber.

"With more complex installations of HD video over longer distances, and in projects ranging from schools to hotels and conference centers, this is a major benefit for our users," he said.
