MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Solutions is bringing a new version of its flagship SilverBack-V series fiber camera adapters to market that reduces the cost of creating high-resolution, cinematic quality productions for a much broader customer base.

The SilverBack-V and SilverBack-VB both convert digital cinema cameras into SMPTE studio cameras for use in live multi-camera productions. SilverBack-VB users will save costs for content producers that can now use lower-priced digital cinema cameras that today provide comparable images to more expensive cameras.
