Vislink Adds To HEROCast Range

News Image
Vislink has announced the addition of its PROceiver receiver unit to its HEROCast HD wireless transmitter for live broadcasting.

The PROceiver is a one-box, compact unit designed for use in harsh RF environments where ruggedness, size and weight, combined with broadcast quality performance, is important. The PROceiver supports MPEG-4 / H.264 encoding and DVB-T modulation. The system also includes video picture monitoring on the front panel TFT display.

HEROCast is a result of joint development efforts to make GoPro's product range suitable for live broadcasting. HEROCast now includes the PROceiver receiver. It was designed to bring the viewer closer to the action than ever before, and was used during live broadcasts of NHL games this spring and the 2015 X Games in Aspen.

"The addition of a receiver unit, specifically designed for the HEROCast transmitter, provides a complete, live broadcast, Point of View solution for our customers," said Ali Zarkesh, Vice President, Product Management at Vislink. "This bundle will make it even easier for venues to quickly setup an RF infrastructure to implement the use of Point of View camera angles in broadcast television."

Vislink is now accepting orders for HEROCast and PROceiver.
