Link Research launch Wireless Camera System at IBC

Link Research's new Wireless Camera System will be launched in Europe at IBC 2002 (stand 1.179).
The new system lets cameramen move around freely, away from the limits of OB vehicles and around buildings and is the first wireless camera system to deliver professional quality 4:2:2 TV footage.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the system includes dual antennae to give a diversity link to an OB vehicle or TV station. Link’s own compact 2k carrier COFDM decoder receives the pictures.
As well as the smallest size and lowest power consumption of any digital system on the market, Link’s Wireless Camera System has the shortest end-to-end signal delay (now 40ms), so programme editors and producers will be able to synchronise different feeds very easily, making it ideal for Outside Broadcast, ENG and SNG.
The device fixes to the back of any TV camera and will operate at very long distances from the receiver, even when physical objects or buildings stand in the way. The system is fully remote-controlled and has been tested in tunnels and on planes.
Link’s first production units are now all sold to national broadcasters and international distributors. A second consignment will ship in September.
