Vislink to showcase advanced connectivity at BroadcastAsia
Vislink Technologies will showcase a wide selection of its state-of-the-art products at BroadcastAsia 2019 (Stand 6J2-01, Level 6). The company’s presence at the show represents its continued commitment to bringing the next generation of broadcast solutions to markets around the world. Vislink’s lineup includes the award-winning HCAM+ULRX-LD HEVC 4K UHD wireless system, DVE6100 encoder and IRD6200 receiver/decoder, IMTDragonFly Transmitter and its MSAT (man-portable satellite) antenna system. In addition, Vislink’s new INCAM-HS integrated wireless camera transmitter for Sony’s new HDC-5500 4K will be on display at the Sony stand.
Vislink product manager David Edwards will share his expertise on 4K during a presentation on Wednesday, June 19, at 11:30am in the Innovation Hub, level 4. His presentation, entitled “4K Wireless Delivery with HDR--and why it’s not for Pandas,” will discuss the latest trends and considerations in deploying 4K and HDR wireless productions.
Vislink will be showcasing its low-latency HCAM transmitter and UltraReceiver-LD (ULRX-LD), an NAB 2019 Best of Show awarded solution. With single-frame end-to-end capabilities, this latest wireless camera system is the perfect complement to broadcast sports and ENG news coverage applications. As the first company to bring single-frame, end-to-end latency in 4K, the HCAM is the most widely deployed HEVC 4K UHD wireless transmitter on the market today. It features user-interchangeable RF modules and a range of software options – including HDR-ready capability – and supports quad 3/6/12G SDI, HDMI, fiber-optic, SMPTE 2022-6 and HD/SDI-over-IP interfaces. With highly flexible and configurable mounting options and intuitive video interfaces, the unit can be mounted to broadcast, ENG and other professional-grade cameras. In addition, the unit features integrated camera control with Vislink FocalPoint compatibility and direct-docking battery plates with integral power feed through. The associated ULRX is a 1RU half-width, rackmount chassis receiver that fills the need for reliable HEVC transmission and allows for better compression without sacrificing quality. The versatile receiver features four UHF inputs with maximum-ratio combining, DVB-T and proprietary LMS-T demodulation, as well as ASI and IP capabilities.
Updates to Vislink’s satellite communications line will also be on display with the new DVE6100 encoder and IRD6200 receiver/decoder for applications where size and weight is at a premium. The company’s DVE6100 is a compact, multi-format, multi-channel 4K HEVC exciter that is ideally suited for flyaway and vehicle-mounted uses. The IRD6200 is a compact, multi-format, multi-channel 4K integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) ideally suited to news and events applications. Both solutions offer ultimate satellite bandwidth efficiency by utilizing the latest HEVC video compression and DVB-S2X satellite modulation technology, allowing a 50-percent reduction in leased satellite bandwidth compared to MPEG-4, DVB-S2 technology--dramatically reducing satellite OPEX. The DVE6100 and IRD6200 are the smallest and lightest 4K UHD DVB-S2X exciter and 4K UHD HEVC DVB-S2X IRD on the market, respectively.
