High-Bandwidth IP Network for ENG from Vislink

xG Technology is demonstrating newsnet, “a technological ecosystem” that establishes a bi-directional IP network for ENG use. The demo is courtesy of xG divisions Vislink and IMT.

"Newsnet is the most advanced ENG solution currently available, and is one of the key service offerings that led xG Technology to acquire Vislink," says George Schmitt, Executive Chairman and CEO of xG Technology. "It has the potential to be a key tool in broadcasters' arsenals for maximizing their coverage of the news as well as fully leveraging their studio assets."

"The trend of ENG becoming more reliant on the Internet means broadcasters must depend heavily on unsecured and at-will, unmanaged broadband infrastructures as the main corridor connecting field and studio," says John Payne IV, president of IMT USA. 

"With newsnet, Vislink has pioneered an alternative IP-centric technology resulting in a complete solution, which preserves the security of the licensed BAS 2 GHz frequency band while maximizing its efficiency and spectrum usage. 

We have begun implementing newsnet within select prominent broadcast stations.”
