AVIWEST Unveils New 5G Transmitter For Live Remote Production

The new PRO460 is the next evolution of AVIWEST’s flagship PRO bonded cellular transmitter series for remote and at-home video production over 5G networks.

The AVIWEST PRO460 addresses all the challenges that broadcasters face in expanding their remote production for live events, including sports, entertainment, concerts, and interactive TV shows. Available in a compact form factor suitable for backpack or V-Mount/G-mount camera mounting, the PRO460 supports 4K UHD and multicamera workflows for up to four high-resolution, fully frame-synced feeds, delivering outstanding-quality video and high performance.

Through the PRO460’s extensive feature set, broadcasters can produce content with unparalleled efficiency from a central facility using advanced features that include full control and monitoring of transmitters directly from the studio. The PRO460 supports wireless frame-accurate synchronization and video transmission of multiple cameras to ensure seamless switching in the studio while a high-definition video return (up to 1080p50/60) is available for confidence monitoring or teleprompting. The solution also offers support for full-duplex intercoms to optimize communication between field crews and studio operators, and innovative data bridging for remote camera control, tally light management, or control of any IP connected device during a live event.

Housing six globally compliant 5G modems and incorporating patented, high-efficiency custom antennas to ensure high-speed transmission, the PRO460 provides robust, error-free transmission over any network (i.e., cellular, satellite, IP leased line, or the public internet), ensuring low end-to-end latency, down to 0.5 seconds, thanks to AVIWEST’s SST (Safe Stream Transport) technology. SST combines advanced network aggregation, adaptive packet retransmission, and Forward Error Correction techniques to enable high network throughput and maximize quality of service.

In addition, the PRO460 supports the latest generation of H.265/HEVC and the proven H.264/AVC compression standards to accommodate new and existing infrastructures ensuring high-quality video and high performance, with up to 4Kp60 combined with eight audio channels for high-end productions.
