IMT makes cameras wireless at NAB 2015

IMT adds 6.5GHz Support and a Triple Play receiver to its RF-Central microLite brand.

Integrated Microwave Technologies, "IMT",  has added 6.5-7.1GHz to the RFCentral-branded microLite product family and a Triple Play 1RU microLite receiver. These new products will be shown at NAB 2015. The new products provide broadcasters more means to permanently cut the HD-SDI cables connecting cameras to Electronic News Gathering (ENG)/Satellite News Gathering (SNG) trucks.

IMT is a leader in advanced digital microwave video systems serving the Military & Government, Broadcast and Sports Entertainment markets. Headquartered in Mt. Olive, NJ IMT serves customers globally through its "IMT", "Nucomm" and "RF Central" brands.

The successful RF Central-branded microLite family of products now includes a 1 RU receiver designed to simplify its integration into ENG/SNG vehicles and a 6.5GHz microlite transmitter and receiver.

The microLite Triple Play receiver chassis houses up to three microLite receivers within a single 1RU rack mount unit. This allows simultaneous reception from three roving cameras. Each microLite receiver has an independent control panel further simplifying its control. Each receiver has an HD-SDI, ASI and IP, making it flexible for ASI repeater applications, local monitoring and IP controls.

The microLite is now available in the 6.5/7.1GHz bands. It covers both the 6.5Ghz and 7.1GHz BAS licensed frequency bands. The microLite is available in all three classic mounting configurations including: hot shoe, AB and V-clip mounts, making it easy to integrate onto all camera types.

Rick Bigelow, IMT CEO and SVP at Skyview Capital added, "We are very excited to launch these new, innovative RF products. We are actively looking to grow the IMT platform organically and inorganically."

Skyview Capital LLC recently acquired IMT from Vitec Group, plc. The asset purchase agreement was signed November 3, 2014 with a simultaneous closing. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

IMT will exhibit at NAB booth N3922
