VidOvation Heats Up Remote Production

Wireless and cellular links provider will show the latest gear from ABonAir and Aviwest in Vegas.

"The market is really heating up for remote production – everyone from the smallest local TV stations to the largest networks want to be able to cover breaking stories wherever they happen no matter what the conditions. VidOvation's uplink and wireless solutions, thanks to partnerships with Aviwest and ABonAir, are making it possible for production crews to get the shots they need while saving millions on satellite contribution/distribution costs,” said Jim Jachetta, evp and cto, VidOvation.

VidOvation now represents the wireless video link products of ABonAir in the US. At NAB, VidOvation will demonstrate ABonAir's flagship wireless video link — AB512. Built on a bidirectional radio channel between transmitter and receiver, ABonAir's wireless video links acknowledge the correct acceptance of each group of pixels, thus providing exceptionally robust and reliable transmission. Most notably, the AB512 system reduces latency to only a 7-millisecond delay (also known as subframe delay) for live event coverage, multicamera productions, and any other application in which latency of two to six frames or 30-90 milliseconds is unacceptable. Low delay enables crews to produce multicamera and live shows without worrying about the lag caused by lip sync or the simultaneous operation of multiple cameras. The system features an RF spectrum analyzer that automatically selects and hops to the best RF channel without dropping a single bit, while the manual channel selection option is ideal for frequency coordination at large events.
