Vislink Newsnet is a bi-directional high-speed IP wireless data link using reliable BAS spectrum.
The union of IMT and Vislink product lines under the xG Technology umbrella brings an expanded range of video capture, transmit and receive solutions to broadcasters.
xG Technology acquired Vislink in October 2016, with the goal of merging Vislink’s operations into those of IMT. The addition of Vislink product lines to IMT brings together the broadcast industry’s most comprehensive range of wireless video systems.
Several key IMT and Vislink products will be on display in the exhibit. One is the world’s first end-to-end wireless 4K UHD live video solution, Vislink UltraLite. Another is IMT DragonFly, a highly-miniaturized wireless video transmission system. The IMT Nulinx-IP Compact will also be on display. It is a self-contained, point-to-point bi-directional microwave link that supports current ATSC 1.0 and future ATSC 3.0 standards.
Also on display will be Vislink Newsnet, a revolutionary approach to ENG operations that brings studio workflows directly to the field, and Vislink ViewBack, a lightweight, low power, low latency, dual channel diversity receiver-decoder that enables quicker production, more efficient editing, and more effective collaboration between camera operators and studio teams.
Vislink SatWare will also be demonstrated. It is a high-performance embedded computing and routing system designed to provide enhanced capability and simplified use of broadcast equipment in the field.
George Schmitt, Executive Chairman and CEO of xG Technology, says, “Since completing the acquisition of Vislink last month, we have begun to aggressively drive the integration of their operations. The joint appearance of IMT and Vislink at 2017 NAB Show underscores this commitment. The impressive synergies between their product lines allows them to offer a wider and richer set of capabilities than previously available to customers in broadcast and media, as well as in law enforcement, public safety and defense markets.”
Mike Payne, president of Newsnet, a newly created group within IMT focused on the next generation of IP newsgathering solutions, says, “All of us at Vislink are excited to combine our collective resources with IMT to solidify ourselves as leaders within the broadcast and law enforcement markets. The future is tremendously bright as we develop new IP wireless systems, extending studio networks seamlessly into the field.”
