AVIWEST Showcases Uplink with Universal Modems

AVIWEST’s DMNG PRO video uplink series has been extended with the new PRO180+ which supports most of the world’s cellular networks.

The firm says the versatility of this version gives video profs the flexibility to travel anywhere in the world with a single unit without needing to replace its internal or external cellular modems.

"Broadcasters today need to be prepared to provide live coverage from anywhere in the world," said Erwan Gasc, CEO at AVIWEST. "With the PRO180+, they can stream video over any cellular network. Compared with other video uplink systems on the market, which require additional modems to support the various networks in each country, the PRO180+ solution is compact, cost-effective, and full featured, making it the perfect tool for broadcasters on the go."

In addition to eight universal cellular modems, the PRO180+ features an internal ‘high-efficiency’ custom antenna array, Wi-Fi modem, and two video encoders, enabling broadcasters to stream live HD video to receivers with minimal delay.

The PRO180+ system automatically detects real-time network capabilities. Users can easily operate the system as well as communicate with the studio through the IFB return channel via a user-friendly, touch-screen interface. The units can also be controlled by AVIWEST's Manager management system, StreamHub transceiver, and the Remote smartphone application or any device connected to the unit though the network.
