Changing Architectures
& Topologies
Frank Jachetta, President, MultiDyne, discusses
the rise of streaming content distribution and
consumption amid the lockdown...
InBroadcast: Can you
give us a brief overview of
what we can expect in the
next 6-12 months within
your sector?
Frank Jachetta:
We
have already seen shifts
toward more streaming as a
means of consumption with
the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beyond live and on-demand
television, we are seeing a
stronger hold in surrounding
market
verticals
that
MultiDyne sells into. For
example, houses of worship
have really strengthened
their
streaming
architectures to ensure they
can deliver services to parishioners at
their homes. Worship facilities have
always been broadcast savvy, so this
represents a greater step forward in
their broadcast capabilities. We are
also seeing entertainment companies
transition to on-demand models for
live performance, including pay-perview concerts from empty venues and
theaters.
InB: Can you explain the benefits
in regard to the latest product
announcements?
FJ: One common thread across all
of these areas is the need for reliable
transport and high-quality encoding to
ensure quality consumer experiences.
As streaming becomes the norm,
fibre and compression are core
technologies to enable these services.
We see those markets as important
growth areas for both our businesses.
MultiDyne's SilverBack camera back
fibre transport systems will bring great
value to entertainment and production
companies shooting live streamed
events, as well as for producing reality
shows and other location-based
events.
We have also taken steps to
strengthen our product offering in the
compression space with our MD9200
Series of encoders and decoders.
These products are equally valuable

add more data transport.
There is a lot to consider
on that part alone, and
then you have to weigh the
formats and bandwidth.
12G means more highspeed circuits and a great
leap in bandwidth, and
that brings challenges of
its own. Though these are
all fairly simple devices
on paper, with each new
format
and
transport
option comes a new set of
engineering challenges. We
are increasingly moving to
more modular systems that

some differences in requests. For
example, we have seen an uptick in

aggressive moves over the past year
FJ: Fibre transport means something to build our presence and partner

that can be tricky when it comes to in Europe to grow our presence, and
nailing the engineering design for a as a result there has been greater

capacity, or wants to drop audio and interest in 12G, and MultiDyne has

been very aggressive in adapting our
products for 12G transport.
The general point is that the
differences are minor by region,
and that there is a need for fibre
infrastructure in every region. We
have strengthened our global presence
to serve those needs, along with a
continually evolving product line to
serve emerging requirements.
InB:
Any
future
product
innovations ahead that you can
discuss?
FJ: Nothing specific that we can
talk about yet, but I can say that the
industry will see more 12G MultiDyne
products coming to market, and that
our IP-enabled innovations are on the
horizon. IP has been used to move
content around studios for some
time, and we are beginning to see
that transport mechanism as part of
the mobile production workflow. The
truck companies use a lot of MultiDyne
fibre transport equipment, particularly
when it comes to signal conversion
and field fibre throwdown systems.
At some point we will see a greater
need for IP compression technologies
between studios, trucks, and locations,
as well as more GPS-equipped
transport systems.
InB: Can you advise on your ideal
market for these products?
FJ: This takes me back to the
point that everyone needs fibre, and
everyone needs compression when
it comes to reliable video transport
and high-quality signal encoding.
The traditional broadcaster, the
mobile truck, and increasingly the
emerging OTT and streaming service
provider will continue to be our bread
and butter. We do think there are
interesting scenarios within these
markets, such as convergence with
IP and NDI that will become more
appealing as topologies change and
grow.
InB: Thank you for taking time to
answer our questions.
