AVIWEST Reveals BroadcastAsia Line-Up

News Image
At BroadcastAsia2015, AVIWEST will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) system, a fully integrated and cloud-based solution for breaking news and live events coverage.

Using AVIWEST's advanced live video contribution platform, broadcasters can capture and deliver live HD or SD video over multiple networks, including bonded 3G/4G cellular wireless, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite.

Offering seamless integration into existing workflows and headends, low power consumption, high MTBF, and unparalleled mobility, the DMNG system is the ideal solution for broadcasters worldwide.

Other key product updates for the show include:

New DMNG Studio
AVIWEST will showcase the next generation of its DMNG Studio server, which is capable of receiving incoming streams from DMNG video uplink systems as well as third-party products such as IP cameras through a variety of protocols such as RTP, RSTP, TS over UDP, HLS, and RTMP.

The new Linux-based server supports multiple output formats, allowing for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint video distribution. After accepting video signals from the studio mixer, the DMNG Studio server enables streaming to the cloud, providing broadcasters with a centralised video hub and interface in addition to a receiver.

The DMNG Studio is compatible with all AVIWEST live video transmission solutions, including the DMNG PRO series, DMNG RACK180, and the DMNG APP. Through the application's user interface, users can easily manage a fleet of remote transmitters and dynamically create live broadcast shows by interacting with remote journalists and selecting the stream to publish on air. The application is available in a variety of configurations to fit unique needs and headend constraints and can be virtualised in the cloud.

New DMNG APP — Now Available for Android and iOS-Based Smartphones
Using the DMNG APP, broadcasters can grab any Android or iOS-based smartphone and instantly transmit video content. This allows video professionals to stream high-quality, live video content via Wi-Fi and 3G/4G-LTE networks or transmit prerecorded video files from anywhere in the world to the DMNG Studio receiver. With the capability to bond together Wi-Fi and 3G/4G-LTE networks, the DMNG APP maximises bandwidth, coverage, and reliability. Fully integrated into the DMNG ecosystem, the application can be remotely controlled through AVIWEST's DMNG Manager, enabling organisations to effectively manage a large fleet of smartphones.

New DMNG PRO Capabilities
Specially Designed Backpack
At BroadcastAsia2015, AVIWEST will show a specially designed backpack for the DMNG PRO video uplink system. The backpack is ideal for broadcasters utilising the DMNG PRO with a handheld camera. The DMNG PRO system can also be mounted on the camera. Using the versatile backpack solution, which can be worn on the back or front, in-field news crews can carry all gear with ease.

Integration With Cobham and Hughes BGAN Terminals
The latest DMNG PRO comes integrated with Cobham's EXPLORER 710 and Hughes' 9211-HDR BGAN satellite terminals. When used during satellite transmission, the antennas enable the DMNG PRO to compress video content according to the available satellite bit rate to ensure superior video quality.

Enhanced Performance and New Functions
In addition to enhancing general system performance, AVIWEST has added several new functions to the DMNG PRO system. A new roaming function supporting international SIM cards allows the user to select the operator that the SIM will be connected to, gaining increased flexibility. A low-frame-rate feature has also been added to the DMNG PRO, which is beneficial for low-bit-rate streaming.

DMNG Manager
AVIWEST will also demonstrate new cloud-based capabilities for the DMNG Manager. Using the server application, broadcasters and video professionals can monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment including DMNG transmitters, smartphones using the DMNG APP, and DMNG Studio receivers.

Through a unified Web-based user interface, which can be installed through either a cloud-based application or a headend solution, operators can allocate resources and route live video content for transmission over 3G/4G cellular wireless, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite networks. The DMNG Manager also includes geolocation capabilities, which enables operators to easily identify the exact location of each transmission.
