Description Description:


The Multidyne FS-900 Fiber System from JVC offers bi-directional 3G-SDI 1080p/60 video feed-and-return for up to three JVC GY-HM890 camcorders using SMPTE-304M fiber cable and a single base station. Control, audio, sync, and intercom are also transmitted between camera and base station. The FS-900 base station has built-in gigabit Ethernet that works with the GY-HM890’s streaming capabilities to provide video-over-IP transmission as well. Three camera adapters and one base are included in the system (cameras are available separately).

The FS-900 base station is designed to integrate with existing systems, providing two HD/SDI outputs with return SDI and VBS connections (for analog signals), audio (RTS TW intercom module) and sync/control functions including bi-level /tri-level sync, teleprompter input, time code, GPI signals, and remote camera control input. The camera modules attach directly to the camera backs using a 68-pin interface, eliminating the need for external cable connectors. The base’s redundant power supply offers a maximum of 150W for each camera and its accessories.
