Videosys Broadcast Prepares For IBC

New integrated products shows how UK-based company continues to simplify signal workflows in the highest quality at outside broadcast events.

Videosys Broadcast will unveil Epsilon, the company’s new multi-function broadcast RF camera control system at IBC 2019. Epsilon includes a fully integrated 4K decoder and receiver and is an ideal solution for simplifying HD and 4K live sports and music events.

Epsilon is comprised of base and head modules with the decoder, receiver, camera control and fiber contained in one single base unit. An operator only has to rig one unit instead of the traditional four units. The base unit is connected via a single SMPTE cable to the head unit, further reducing cabling and removing the complexity of set-up and maintenance.

By significantly reducing setup and equipment count, Epsilon delivers wide area wireless coverage in stadia, large studio environments, houses of worship and educational centers in a simple and efficient way. Epsilon works seamlessly with the 4K Aeon-CC digital video transmitter to provide the complete 4K wireless RF system.

The company will also introduce Stagebox at IBC. It enables the delivery of A/V data over fiber and allows operators to multiplex all audio and video components such as microphones, monitors, and talkback panels onto a single SMPTE fiber cable and power remotely.

Stagebox improves outside broadcast production workflows by removing the requirement to run separate cables for each feed. It provides crews with a multi-purpose production tool, enabling all the feeds to be connected to the base unit in an OB truck and multiplexed onto a single SMPTE fibre cable. This greatly reduces rigging time and costs. Stagebox can also be used for the lighting director’s position or in a small remote studio.

Colin Tomlin, Managing Director, Videosys Broadcast says, “We understand the complexities associated with deployments of a wireless RF system for live events, whether that’s for sport, music or live studio shows. With the increase in demand for 4K services, the deployment has become more complex and costly. As a result, we created the Epsilon 4K system to simplify 4K management by reducing equipment count and cost of deployment. We are excited to showcase Epsilon at IBC 2019 and look forward to seeing our customers’ reactions on the stand.”

Videosys Broadcast is a supplier of camera control systems, RF links and camera backs to outside broadcast providers with over 500 deployments worldwide. Live events broadcast using Videosys Broadcast systems include the Olympics, Tour de France, the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race and Premier league, to name a few.
