Has DTC Solved UHD Wireless Transmission?

DTC Domo Broadcast (DTC) says it will launch a new, as yet unnamed, solution for transmitting wireless 4K UHD video at IBC 2017. Whether it will solve latency for live to air UHD remains to be seen.

DTC Domo Broadcast Sales Director JP Delport said, “It is exciting to watch the development and possibilities of POV cameras for live broadcast; UAV use; virtual and augmented reality; 360 camera viewing; and IP delivery. However, it is the increasing adoption of UHD and HDR on a global scale that really excites us.

“At IBC we will be launching a UHD solution that makes it possible to transmit 4K wireless video. We believe broadcasters will be excited about our transmitter, not for just its UHD and HDR capabilities but its ability to take advantage of next generation HEVC compression technology. The new transmitter and decoder will be able to handle significantly higher bit-rates than we have seen before and make 4K wireless transmission possible for the first time."

DTC will also show its miniature Broadcast Nano HD transmitter for the first time in Europe. Launched earlier this year, Broadcast Nano now incorporates a control panel; robust, broadcast-standard connectors; and forced cooling that provides significantly improved thermal performance. These improvements enable production teams to capture high definition POV images in, for example, referee or jockey-mounted camera situations not previously possible due to equipment size and battery run-time limitations.

DTC’s camera back OBTX and multi-functioning PRORXD will also be exhibited at IBC, with added features including dual pedestal DVB-T for high bit-rate studio applications.
