MultiDyne SilverBULLET

The SilverBULLET is an economic solution designed for transmission of SDI and HD–SDI TV sig-
nals on single mode fiber optic cable. Perfect for today’s professional and broadcast applications.

At just three inches in length, this cost–effective solution is ideal for a wide variety of pro A/V and

broadcast applications, including video production and editing, ENG with additional uses for

sports teleproduction, field production, remote camera links, cross–campus production,

pre–fibered venues and courtesy feeds.
