Receiving its European debut is the BullDog II, MultiDyne’s next-generation field fiber unit for long-distance signal distribution between trucks, studios and hard-to-reach locations in broadcast, live production and commercial AV applications. Compact, lightweight and portable, the BullDog II was engineered to replace larger, previous- generation MultiDyne field fiber units such as LightBox. 

The BullDog II was developed to offer a common fiber-optic platform, empowering users with a versatile and modular solution to support virtually any field-based transport need. MultiDyne is touting it as the industry’s most scalable fiber-optic platform to support any number of signals in one box.”

The BullDog II allows users to easily change video signal counts from one event to the next by simply adding or removing cards. At the same time, new cards can be inserted to increase audio density or Ethernet capacity, among many additional signals and applications. Initially available in three different frame sizes for applications from single-camera standup interviews to the large scale sporting events, with additional frame sizes to follow. The system also integrates a monitor and touchscreen to enhance signal control and status monitoring between two points.

The BullDog II accommodates multiple video formats (12G, 4K, 3Gb/s, HD/SDI, composite) as well as mic/line audio, intercom, tally, Ethernet, genlock and data.
