AVIWEST will unveil the latest upgrades to its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) system at CABSAT 2016.

The advanced live video contribution platform enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast live HD or SD video over multiple networks. This includes bonded 3G/4G cellular wireless, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and satellite. It offers seamless integration into existing workflows and headends, low power consumption and high MTBF, giving broadcasters an integrated and cloud-based solution for breaking news and live events coverage.

At the show, key product updates will include:

Grid View and Statistics for DMNG Manager
The DMNG Manager 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 to route the video streams to one or multiple receivers or CDNs, with drag and drop. A new statistics feature for the DMNG Manager supplies broadcasters with information such as SIM card consumption.

Software Release for DMNG PRO Video Uplink System
AVIWEST will debut v2.6 of its DMNG PRO video uplink system. The upgrade provides broadcasters with a range of benefits, including the ability to deliver high-bit rate, low-latency, webcast-resolution videos.

Featuring a compact, lightweight, and portable design, the DMNG PRO Series is an advanced 3G/4G video uplink family designed for newsgathering applications. Using the pocket-sized systems, broadcasters can stream live HD video down to the receiver, with minimal delay. The DMNG PRO systems include multiple cellular connections, a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and H.264 video encoders that speed up newsgathering operations.

DMNG Laptop
At CABSAT 2016, AVIWEST will provide a preview of its new DMNG Laptop. This is a newsgathering tool that combines an H.264 and HEVC encoder in an Apple MacBook Pro to enable high-quality streaming. Using the DMNG Laptop, broadcasters can receive video content from a range of sources, including webcams and external SDI/HDMI.

The laptop includes an intuitive GUI that makes it easy to manage various content delivery profiles (BGAN, cellular, ADSL, etc.), providing support for a variety of broadcast use cases including live streaming, file transfer via various networks (wireless, cellular, satellite, LAN/WAN), and storage. By detecting and bonding together multiple IP-based networks (3G, 4G, WiMax, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite), the DMNG Laptop enables broadcasters to take advantage of every IP network in their immediate area as they become available. The DMNG Laptop will officially launch in Q2 2016.

DMNG StreamHub features
New features for the DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform, include an advanced playback functionality and dynamic latency designed to improve the quality of live video. The DMNG StreamHub supports a rich 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.

The DMNG StreamHub offers support for multiple output streaming protocols such as RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP. This allows video content to be freely distributed over virtually any IP network. Up to 16 IP outputs can be used to enable re-streaming of video content over LAN or WAN to CDNs, media servers, streaming platforms, IRDs, or other DMNG StreamHubs.

The DMNG StreamHub application can be hosted on a 1RU or 2RU server platform with various software configurations. The DMNG StreamHub also operates in virtualised mode to deliver the economic benefits of the cloud without compromising the performance required by today's media environments.
