VidOvation Announces NAB Plans and Introductions

At NAB 2016 VidOvation will showcase its latest innovations in video transmission, field recording and distribution systems.

VidOvation has announced its NAB exhibit plans which include the display of its VidOwave 60G 750 PA. The system is an advanced 60 GHz millimeter-wave broadband and wireless data connectivity solution that delivers low latency and full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet transport speeds in a small ruggedized, easy-to-install enclosure. Typical deployments include line-of-sight data links that would otherwise be impossible or cost-prohibitive with fiber optic cable, for such applications as IP video streaming and transport, connecting LANs between buildings, extending fiber backbones, and wireless backhaul for 3G and 4G/LTE mobile networks.

Several new long-range transmitters have been added to the VidOvation Ranger and Reacher family.

Also at the NAB, VidOvation will launch two new wireless transmission systems, the VidOlink Ranger2 and the VidOlink Tally & Control. The VidOlink Ranger2 is a lower-cost long-range transmission system that can transmit wireless HD video as far as two miles with line-of-sight on the 5.8 GHz band.

The VidOlink Tally & Control is a complementary means of adding tally and camera control unit (CCU) functionality to new or existing wireless camera systems. Using the 403-473 MHz band, the Tally & Control can transmit a wide range of tally and CCU functions. It can also send data via VidOlink's RF-over-fiber SMPTE units, delivering RF, data, and power to the receive point with a single cable.

VidOvation has also expanded its lightweight and low-cost VidOlink Reacher family of long-range transmitters with three new models: the VidOlink Reacher 400, VidOlink Reacher 1000, and VidOlink Reacher 2000. Spanning transmission distances of 400, 1,000, and 2,000 feet, respectively, the systems transmit HD SDI and HDMI video with near-zero latency, making them ideal for action sports shots in which near-zero latency is important.

In addition, VidOvation is introducing the DMNG HE4000, an HEVC/H.265 4K video encoder for contribution and primary distribution. With support for high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), the DMNG delivers the same video quality as H.264/AVC at 50 percent of the required bandwidth, optimizing the distribution of SD, HD, and 4K content over unmanaged networks such as the public Internet. By combining HEVC encoding and AVIWEST's SafeStream's contribution technology, the DMNG HE4000 reduces bandwidth costs dramatically while guaranteeing superior video quality.

AVIWEST DMNG

As master distributor for AVIWEST in the U.S. market, VidOvation will showcase the two newest products in AVIWEST's DMNG family of bonded cellular video transmission solutions for newsgathering applications. Offering the industry's highest processing power for bonded cellular transmissions with bit rates of up to 20 Mbps, the DMNG Pro includes a second high-bit-rate encoding engine for high-resolution video recording. New support for dynamic latency and adaptive bit-rate functionality enable the DMNG Pro to minimize latency and seamlessly adjust to changing network conditions without operator intervention. In addition, the DMNG Pro now supports the bonding of eight cellular modems into an Internet access point to help news crews cut costs while maximizing bandwidth and efficiency.
