AVIWEST Unveils NATEXPO 2015 Lineup

News Image
AVIWEST has announced its lineup for NATEXPO 2015. Among its products, the company will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) system.

Its advanced live video contribution platform enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast 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 mobility, the DMNG system offers broadcasters a fully integrated and cloud-based solution for breaking news and live events coverage.

The key product updates at the show will include:

DMNG StreamHub
The receiver, decoder, and distribution platform supports a set of input IP protocols, enabling reception of up to 16 concurrent incoming streams from remote AVIWEST DMNG PRO transmitters, DMNG smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras. Leveraging the platform's four SDI outputs with a genlock input, broadcasters can decode up to four videos simultaneously.

It also offers support for multiple output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP), allowing video content to be freely distributed over virtually any IP network. Up to 16 IP outputs can be utilised to enable re-streaming of video content over LAN or WAN to CDNs, media servers, streaming platforms, IRDs, or other DMNG StreamHubs. In addition, the application can be hosted on a 1RU or 2RU server platform with various software configurations.

DMNG PRO180-RA Video Uplink System
The new features include a new IP Bridge functionality that allows broadcasters to establish an IP bridge between the LAN on which the DMNG StreamHub receiver is connected and the IP devices connected over Ethernet to the DMNG PRO. This enables full control of all IP-based products, such as video mixers or PTZ cameras, directly from the DMNG StreamHub site, allowing for remote video production on the fly.

The DMNG PRO180-RA features eight 3G/4G internal modems with internal high-efficiency custom antenna array, a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and two best-in-class H.264 video encoders, making it ideal for streaming live HD video with minimal delay. The system can be easily connected to any professional camera and mounted via V-Mount, Gold Mount, or PAG plates. It is also able to automatically detect real-time network capabilities.

DMNG Manager
The DMNG Manager is a server application that enables broadcasters and video professionals to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment – including DMNG transmitters, smartphones using the DMNG APP, and DMNG StreamHub receivers.

During NATEXPO 2015, AVIWEST will showcase a new grid view that has been added to the DMNG Manager, which provides broadcasters with a video thumbnail of each feed from the field units. When arranged in a grid-view, the thumbnails ease system resource allocation by helping operators route video streams to one or multiple receivers or CDNs with a simple drag and drop.

DMNG RACK180 Contribution Video Encoder with QUAD Antenna Arrays
This provides broadcasters with an encoding solution for live newsgathering applications, enabling them to cost-effectively capture and deliver HD video content in real-time over multiple networks, including 3G/4G cellular wireless, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite. The DMNG RACK180 is especially designed to be installed in OB vans, SNGs, or other vehicles such as smaller news satellite cars. To optimise signal delivery, the DMNG RACK180 provides connections to two AVIWEST QUAD wideband cellular antenna arrays, which offer extra-strong 3G/4G signal resiliency for live video transmission in critical conditions. AVIWEST's QUAD solution combines four high-efficiency wideband antennas operating from 600MHz to 3GHz, and covering all the frequency bands used by 3G and 4G networks worldwide.

This turns any smartphone into a live broadcast video camera, and is now available as a software development kit (SDK). This allows broadcasters to embed the core of the AVIWEST app within their own application to achieve their own branded look and feel. The DMNG APP allows any Android or iOS-based smartphone user to transmit video content in seconds. Using the DMNG APP, video professionals can stream high-quality, live video content via Wi-Fi and 3G/4G-LTE networks (even bonding both together for higher bandwidth, coverage, and reliability) or transmit prerecorded video files from anywhere in the world to the DMNG StreamHub receiver.

Also at NATEXPO 2015, AVIWEST's new sales manager for Russia and the CIS, Pavel Pupa, will be in attendance to answer attendees' questions and provide live demonstrations of the DMNG system.

In addition, the company will provide a demonstration that focuses on streaming real-time HD video over 3G/4G cellular wireless networks to a DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform hosted in the cloud. During the display, AVIWEST will demonstrate how broadcasters can leverage the DMNG StreamHub's IP streaming output to deliver the video live to YouTube.
