Vislink Adds Receiver To HEROCast HD

Vislink has added the PROceiver receiver unit to its HEROCast HD wireless transmitter for live broadcasts.

The HEROCast is a one-box unit designed for use in “harsh” RF environments where ruggedness, size and weight, combined with broadcast quality performance, is important. The PROceiver supports MPEG-4 / H.264 encoding and DVB-T modulation. The system also includes video picture monitoring on the front panel TFT display.

The product is a result of joint development efforts to make GoPro’s product range suitable for live broadcasting. The HEROCast is claimed to be the smallest and lightest broadcast-quality HD transmitter on the market and the solution now includes the PROceiver receiver.

“The addition of a receiver unit, specifically designed for the HEROCast transmitter, provides a complete, live broadcast, Point of View solution for our customers,” said Ali Zarkesh, Vislink's VP, Product Management. “This bundle will make it even easier for venues to quickly setup an RF infrastructure to implement the use of Point of View camera angles in broadcast television.”
