Broadcast Solutions Adds ABonAir Wireless Video Transmission To Stable

German systems integrator Broadcast Solutions GmbH is now offering the ABonAir wireless video link (IP) system at its many operations facilities in Europe, Middle East and South-East Asia. ABonAir’s wireless systems are used to transmit video content from the scene of the action to OB Vans or broadcast stations using microwave technology with a mere 7-millisecond latency.

The ABonAir series of wireless video systems utilize an OFDM radio and an embedded H.264 video codec to guarantee wireless coverage even in the most difficult scenarios. The technology, combined with other proprietary protocols, was designed to stream HD video of the highest quality with consistent bitrates, in order to meet the most demanding broadcast standards.

The use of H.264 video compression technology, along with wireless radio enhancements (extended range, security and quality), make ABonAir's technology ideal for news coverage (ENG), outdoor sports, reality shows, entertainment, live events and video assist.

ABonAir's technology is based on a full-duplex data channel between camera transmitters and receivers that guaranties 100 percent availability, according to the company, that acknowledges the correct acceptance of each packet of pixels. The system's bi-directional link is embedded with features such as CCU, Tally and Intercom. It provides a line of sight range of up to 2.5 km as well as low delay and low power consumption (10W).

The ABonAir’s wireless system also features: support for a wide range of video resolutions, from SD/HD up to 1080p (NTSC/PAL); embedded camera control unit (CCU/RCP and PTZ); ability to work in unlicensed frequencies (4.9 GHz-5.875 GHz); automatic configuration for fast setup time; as well as a fiber coverage extender for multi-venue or multi-zone usage.
