IMT and Vislink Spotlight New Wireless Camera Transmission Products At IBC

At the 2017 IBC Show the IMT and Vislink divisions of xG Technology, a provider of wireless video solutions, showcased a new series of compact wireless camera transmitters and receivers for the broadcast market. IMT’s and Vislink’s products deliver cost-effective reliability, portability and adaptability for a wide variety of applications.

The xG Technology stand featured several products being showcased jointly by IMT and Vislink, including the IMTDragonFly, microLite and INCAM-G transmitters, as well as the UltraReceiver and DR3 receivers.

The IMTDragonFly is a miniature wireless video transmission system designed to capture real-time, high-quality video from UAV/UGV/Body Cams/Concealments for display on fixed or mobile receive applications. The transmitter features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs with COFDM transmission in a small, lightweight chassis. The IMTDragonFly delivers up to 100mW of power in a package weighing less than 1.2 ounces/34 grams, providing long range, reliable HD video transmission.

The microLite COFDM HD Transmitter is a portable system of wireless camera transmission links for high-quality video applications of up to one-mile line-of-sight (LOS). It provides exceptional range at no cost to the microLite HD’s signature portability. Featuring superb H.264 SD and HD encoding capabilities and operating in the standard 2k DVB-T COFDM mode, the H.264 video encoder supports the main profile of the H.264 standard and therefore provides a 30 percent bit-rate reduction or video-quality improvement compared to encoders that only support the H.264 baseline profile.

The Vislink UltraReceiver is a 1RU half-width, rackmount chassis receiver that features four UHF inputs with maximum-ratio combining, DVB-T and proprietary LMS-T demodulation, as well as ASI and IP capabilities.

The Vislink UltraReceiver is a 1RU half-width, rackmount chassis receiver that features four UHF inputs with maximum-ratio combining, DVB-T and proprietary LMS-T demodulation, as well as ASI and IP capabilities.

Built into the Grass Valley LDX series HD camera, the INCAM-G wireless camera transmitter provides full HD broadcast quality encoding at 1080p, 1080i and 720p, as well as built-in wireless camera control. The INCAM-G transmitter has ultra-low delay down to 20ms H.264 and a full configuration available by Windows™ PC software.

Designed for covering broadcast sports and ENG news with wireless cameras, the UltraReceiver is a 1RU half-width, rackmount chassis receiver that features four UHF inputs with maximum-ratio combining, DVB-T and proprietary LMS-T demodulation, as well as ASI and IP capabilities.

Finally, the DR3 IP Diversity Receiver is the first receiver to offer a built-in IP diversity switch. It is designed to work with Nucomm’s High Dynamic Range Block Down Converters (HDRBDC), which automatically compensate for cable loss. Highly modular and scalable, the DR3 allows users to daisy chain up to eight receivers to share the same set of antennas. Each DR3 acts as a redundancy to the HDRBDC, ensuring high reliability.
