Vislink To Display New Product Families At IBC 2015

News Image
Vislink has announced it will display two new product families at IBC 2015.
The products are designed to change the way people watch live events, giving broadcasters previously unseen levels of flexibility when wirelessly capturing and transmitting live video.

Point of View Live

Vislink has reinvented how broadcasters capture live action footage, pairing the world's smallest and lightest broadcast-quality HD micro transmitter, HEROCast, with a dedicated wireless receive unit, PROCeiver, providing a complete end-to-end solution. It's now easier than ever for technical crews to introduce point of view camera angles from any location and transmit them live for broadcast television.

HEROCast has been developed in partnership with GoPro and is designed to work specifically with the GoPro HERO 4 and HERO 3+ product lines. Paired with Vislink's technology, GoPro cameras can now transmit live HD video wirelessly for the first time. HEROCast is small enough to be mounted on helmets, the body, and a range of other applications, giving broadcasters' unrivalled flexibility when capturing live sports and events.

"Vislink has a long track record of creating the industry's smallest and lightest wireless camera transmitters. Now, with HEROCast and PROCeiver, Vislink is taking this expertise and expanding the range of points of view to enable more compelling and immersive content," said Simon Derry, CEO at Vislink.

HEROCast has already been used to transmit unique perspectives and angles at NHL Playoffs, Summer/Winter X Games and many other high-profile sporting events, giving broadcasters the necessary tools to bring viewers closer to the action. Like all Vislink equipment, the Point of View Live range has been developed to deliver high performance and low latency with an extremely small form factor.

4K/HEVC without compromise

Vislink has made 4K wireless video transmission a reality by pairing its award-winning hardware encoder, the UltraCoder, with the new UltraDecoder that will be unveiled at IBC 2015.

The UltraCoder is the industry's first H.265 and 4K capable video compression encoder purpose built for content contribution. It's designed to let broadcasters transmit HEVC encoded live video at half the bandwidth of H.264,  hence offering 50 percent cost savings with no compromise on quality. The UltraCoder will be capable of encoding 4 H.265 HD channels simultaneously hence doing the job of 4 encoders in one product.

"By introducing an HD H.265 and UHD 4K encoder and decoder package to meet future broadcaster needs, Vislink is ensuring its global user base stays at the forefront of what's possible with live video encoding in broadcast technology. Providing astonishing H.265 capabilities now, we are providing a future proof solution to enable the evolution to UHD without the need for new equipment," said Simon Derry.

Keeping with Vislink's ethos of small and lightweight design, the UltraCoder is housed in a compact ½ width 1RU chassis. This makes it capable of being used in situations where weight and space are critical, giving broadcasters the ability to transmit video in crystal clear HD and UHD quality from the field. The UltraCoder and UltraDecoder is an ideal package for satellite and electronic newsgathering or for use at sports events, letting broadcasters encode and compress footage from challenging locations that simply wouldn't be feasible with a wired set up.

Vislink will be at IBC 2015, stand 1.A69.
