VidOvation To Feature At NAB

News Image
VidOvation has announced the products it will demonstrate at this year's NAB Show.

The innovations and systems include the VidOwave 60G 750 PA, an advanced 60 GHz millimeter-wave broadband and wireless data connectivity solution that delivers low latency and full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet transport speeds in a small, easy-to-install enclosure. Typical deployments include line-of-sight data links for applications such as IP video streaming and transport, connecting LANs between buildings, extending fiber backbones, and wireless backhaul for 3G and 4G/LTE mobile networks.

New for NAB 2016 is the company's turnkey IPTV system, VidOvation TV, which includes full integration of DirecTV content. The integration enables an end-to-end IPTV system that includes DirecTV, digital rights management, video on demand, and digital video recording with streaming to smartphones, tablets, desktop players, displays, smart TVs, and set-top boxes.

VidOvation will also demonstrate two new products in AVIWEST's DMNG range of bonded cellular video transmission solutions for newsgathering applications. The DMNG Pro includes a second high-bit-rate encoding engine for high-resolution video recording. New support for dynamic latency and adaptive bit-rate functionality enable the DMNG Pro to minimise latency and adjust to changing network conditions without operator intervention. It also supports the bonding of eight cellular modems into an internet access point to help news crews cut costs while maximising bandwidth and efficiency.

The DMNG HE4000 is an HEVC/H.265 4K video encoder for contribution and primary distribution. With support for high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), the DMNG delivers the same video quality as H.264/AVC at 50% of the required bandwidth, and optimises the distribution of SD, HD, and 4K content over unmanaged networks such as the public internet. By combining HEVC encoding and AVIWEST's SafeStreams contribution technology, the DMNG HE4000 reduces bandwidth costs while maintaining high video quality.

VidOvation will also launch the VidOlink Ranger2 and VidOlink Tally & Control at the show. The VidOlink Ranger2 is a low-cost long-range transmission system that can transmit wireless HD video of up to two miles with line-of-sight on the 5.8 GHz band. The VidOlink Tally & Control is a complementary means of adding tally and camera control unit (CCU) functionality to new or existing wireless camera systems. Using the 403-473 MHz band, the Tally & Control can transmit a range of tally and CCU functions, and also send data via VidOlink's RF-over-fiber SMPTE units, delivering RF, data, and power to the receive point with a single cable.

The company's VidOlink Reacher family of long-range transmitters has also been extended, with the VidOlink Reacher 400, VidOlink Reacher 1000, and VidOlink Reacher 2000. Spanning transmission distances of 400, 1,000, and 2,000 feet, respectively, the systems transmit HD, SDI and HDMI video with near-zero latency, making them ideal for action sports shots.

Jim Jachetta, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, VidOvation, said: "At this year's NAB Show, we'll be rolling out our latest technologies, which make field video acquisition, contribution, and distribution faster while enabling lower latency and higher video quality than ever before."
