MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems Certifies Neutrik’s opticalCON® DRAGONFLY for use with its SilverBack Camera Adapter Series

Charlotte, NC – August 2020… MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems is an industry leader in signal conversion and fiber-optic-based transport systems for the broadcast, digital cinema, teleconferencing, Pro-AV, and related markets. With a rich assortment of offerings, all of which are designed to address mission critical video and audio applications, it is crucial that the connectors interfacing their products with other equipment provide secure, trouble free performance. This is precisely why MultiDyne recently certified Neutrik’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors for use with its SilverBack camera adapter products.


Neutrik’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors incorporate Fusion splice technology that delivers consistent performance and are field repairable. As they fit into standardized SMPTE cutouts, switching to the opticalCON DRAGONFLY is easy. Compared to other connectors, Neutrik’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY offers easy cleaning with compressed air—resulting in low maintenance intervals with no need for cleaning tools and inspection scopes. Equally important, they offer a superior anti-kink boot design and incorporate a modular form factor that makes it easy to replace parts if damaged.


Recognizing the advantages of Neutrik’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors, MultiDyne’s President and CEO, Frank Jachetta, was eager to incorporate these connectors into his company’s SilverBack product group. “The SilverBack V line provides a robust, full bandwidth fiber optic link between any 12G, Quad-Link, or Dual-Link 4K camera and one’s truck, control room, or ‘video village’ position,” he explained. “The system puts all of the signals needed for multi-camera 4K/UHDTV production onto a single tactical or SMPTE hybrid fiber cable using Neutrik’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors—ensuring robust, trouble-free connectivity for any studio or remote production. Of note, the ease of cleaning the opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors is another major benefit.”


Neutrik connectors are recognized globally for their innovative design, stellar performance, and reliability. MultiDyne’s SilverBack and the HUT product groups have been available with Neutrik’s opticalCON connectors for quite some time. This prior experience with Neutrik made the decision to offer the company’s opticalCON DRAGONFLY connectors an easy decision. “Like all Neutrik products,” Jachetta reports, “the opticalCON DRAGONFLY is of the highest quality and design. I know from firsthand experience; it will be well supported.”


Before turning his attention to the business of the day, Jachetta offered these parting comments regarding his company’s use of Neutrik connectors, “The ability to offer our customers a variety of options is a crucial element of our business and, in the same way that we strive to always ‘have our customer’s back’ in terms of support, we know that Neutrik always has our back. From design to service, Neutrik is a pleasure to work with. This is precisely why, moving forward, we also intend to offer the opticalCON DRAGONFLY with our SMPTE-HUT product group.”
