AVIWEST Launch New 5G Field Transmitter And Encoder Series

AVIWEST’s flagship mobile transmitters and encoders combine 5G performance with top-notch SST bonding technology

Using the 5G versions of AVIWEST’s powerful and lightweight bonded cellular transmitters, video professionals will be able to deliver live news, multicamera sports and events coverage with greater efficiency, higher quality and cost-effectiveness from any part of the world.

“5G networks are expected to bring many improvements to the current bonded cellular transmission scenario,” said Ronan Poullaouec, chief technology officer at AVIWEST. “Gigabit speeds and reduced transmission latencies are the initial advantages broadcasters can realize from 5G. Beyond the new capacities and services that 5G networks enable, our AVIWEST field units will help to maintain a consistent quality of service and make the best use of 5G network performance.”

AVIWEST’s flagship camera-mounted and backpack PRO3-5G unit features six embedded 3G/4G/5G modems that are compliant worldwide with a high-efficiency, patented custom antenna array. As the market’s most compact advanced 5G field unit, the AIR-5G features a long-life internal rechargeable battery and a large set of audio and video interfaces.

Both mobile transmitter series leverage AVIWEST’s SST (Safe Streams Transport) protocol, which aggregates multiple IP network connections and dynamically adapts video bit rates according to network bandwidth fluctuations. With SST, broadcasters can effectively protect streaming content and support the retransmission of lost data.

AVIWEST has been involved in multiple field tests of 4K/UHD and full HD/HEVC video delivery over 5G since 2017. Teaming up with major international broadcasters and telcos enables AVIWEST to effectively test the real-world impact and performance enhancements of 5G on live broadcast video production using the PRO3-5G, AIR-5G and HE Series. The company has recently demonstrated this at a major tennis championship at Roland Garros in France.
