Quicklink Mobile Encoder Shines

New Quicklink encoder transmits high quality broadcast media streaming from the most remote locations, and is designed for maximum performance and portability.

UK-based Quicklink has introduced a modern day mobile encoder that incorporates all the functionality required to broadcast live video from any location. The encoder can simultaneously bond 10 connections including Wi-Fi, USB and Satellite. The modular design also allows the encoder to be easily removed from the backpack for use in studios, vehicles and fly-packs.

The Quicklink Mobile Encoder automatically aggregates all available bandwidth seamlessly, without disruption of transmission, even as satellite, microwave or cellular connections are added or dropped.

It automatically optimizes its transmission to maximize quality and to minimize latency and includes CIF resolution. The encoder is fully tested on the Thuraya satellite, VSAT and Ka network. The encoder also has full Inmarsat BGAN HDR Integration and control as well as built-in GPS functionality with custom integration to the user's choice of mapping systems.

Quicklink has launched its latest version of the Windows Live software with the installation of the HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) or also known as H.265. HEVC/H.265 is the standards-based, next-generation codec successor to H.264. It delivers the same visual quality as H.264 at approximately half the bitrate.

The new encoder has a 5 second boot time and the automatic bandwidth speed detection includes automatic adjustment. The unit provides dual Ethernet ports, external USB ports for optional additional modems, and store-and-forward file transfer for offline encoding.
