MultiDyne® Launches ProGo Fiber Extender

Increasing Transmission Distances for Live POV Camera Applications

LOCUST VALLEY, N.Y. - Sept. 11, 2013 - MultiDyne®, a leading provider of fiber-optic-based video and audio transport solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, today launched ProGo, a powerful new fiber extender that dramatically increases the transmission distance for fixed, live point-of-view (POV) camera applications and is designed by MultiDyne for use with GOPRO® products. Utilizing ProGo, camera operators can cost-effectively bypass the distance limitations of HDMI® over copper cable, achieving a distance of 1 km.

"Our ProGo fiber extender makes inexpensive, live POV a reality for camera operators," said Frank Jachetta, president of MultiDyne. "Through its small, lightweight form factor, ProGo provides users with an easy-to-use, cost-effective plug-and-play solution capable of delivering live video from hard to reach locations such as a basketball backboard or ski jump."

ProGo is designed by MultiDyne for use with GOPRO cameras. The small, unobtrusive enclosure can be discreetly mounted alongside a camera and communicates with a fixed receiver located at the video destination. Adapter cables and dual power supplies are included.

Designed for use with GOPRO® products. GOPRO® is a registered trademark of Woodman Labs, Inc. in the United States and other countries.
