Two-way communication in the newsnet ecosystem optimizes licensed RF spectrum usage and newsroom workflows.
xG Technology’s newsnet solution combines IP and 2GHz BAS-licensed spectrum to increase TV newsroom and RF spectrum efficiency.
xG Technology business units Vislink and IMT will demonstrate its newsnet solution, a technological ecosystem established for ENG use. Vislink leveraged its wireless technology to develop newsnet as a way of completely transforming traditional ENG workflows. It incorporates a high-speed and reliable bi-directional IP network that utilizes the exclusive and highly coveted 2GHz BAS-licensed spectrum, thereby increasing the number of live ENG transmissions and workflows that can be performed from the field.
The newsnet system consists of one or more mobile high-speed IP network nodes that easily connect with a base station, typically located at existing ENG receive sites. Each mobile node not only offers high-quality video transmission capability, but also a private and reliable ingress point for other IP-centric edge devices. This allows users to control their own private high-speed IP licensed wireless network to ensure their content and intellectual property are never at risk.
“With newsnet, Vislink has pioneered an alternative IP-centric technology, which preserves the security of the licensed BAS 2GHz frequency band while maximizing its efficiency and spectrum usage,” says John Payne IV, president of IMT USA. “We have implemented newsnet within select prominent broadcast stations and have seen superb results thus far.”
The newsnet intuitive user interface is accessible to many skill levels. Newsnet allows for multiple access points to operate simultaneously on the same BAS channel, all while enabling a high bandwidth IP connection with the newsroom computer system (NRCS). This IP connection can further be leveraged to enhance news production values through high-speed file sharing, as well as enabling all other IP-centric tools in remote locations, phone systems, Closed Captioning, automation and remote asset management. Newsnet is compatible with MOS protocol-based news automation systems such as Ross Video, Octopus, Dalet and Video Inception.
