Aviwest Shows Uplink System for Live Video Remote Production

At IBC 2017, Aviwest will showcase AIR300 and AIR320, the two first products in its AIR series of video uplink systems featuring HEVC hardware encoders.

Featuring up to four cellular connections, an internal Wi-Fi modem, internal battery, and Aviwest's SafeStreams technology, the AIR series allows broadcasters to stream live videos and store and forward recorded content even during unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions.

“This new transmitter series is the perfect tool for on-the-go video professionals who need lightweight, portable, and versatile video solutions,” states the vendor.

Its HE4000 4K Ultra HD (UHD) HEVC live encoder is also highlighted. This is targeting real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates.

The HE4000 will be demonstrated with the latest version of the StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform, offering integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.

The capabilities of the firm’s cloud solution will be showcased. By supporting both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint distribution scenarios, the platform offers broadcasters options to stream live video content to CDNs and streaming platforms, such as Facebook Live or YouTube. The platform includes a SIP-based IFB application, providing broadcasters with an efficient way to coordinate with their crew during news or live event broadcasts via audio conferences or one-to-one conversation.

“On the field, eligible AVIWEST devices are connected to the Manager in just seconds, and conferences can be started without having to configure anything,” said Aviwest.

Finally, the PRO video uplink series has been extended with the new PRO180+ which supports most of the cellular networks deployed in the world.

“The versatility of this version gives broadcasters and video professionals the flexibility to travel everywhere in the world with a single unit without needing to replace its internal or external cellular modems,” states Aviwest.
