Vislink System Delivers For Sailing Event

News Image
xG Technology's Vislink business is providing wireless camera transmission capabilities to support the live stream broadcast of this year's Kiel Week Regatta, 17 – 25 June.

In addition to being the largest sailing event in the world, Kiel Week is the largest summer festival in northern Europe. Held in Kiel, Germany, it welcomes almost 5,000 sailors, 2,000 ships and approximately three million visitors from around the world each year.

The project called for the deployment of a new watercraft-based wireless transmission system to feed into the live stream broadcast from the event. Vislink equipment has been deployed by Sales Cube GmbH (Sales Cube), Vislink's official reseller in Germany, and the two companies worked together to create an equipment list that would enable reliable ship-to-shore live transmission of footage while minimising power consumption and payload.

Among the Vislink equipment being used is a next-generation, customisable wireless camera transmission system capable of supporting the dynamic action of live sporting events, as well as a suite of diversity receivers and decoders targeted at compact wireless camera and microwave link use. Additional Vislink components were incorporated to optimise the video transmission and maintain image quality.

George Schmitt, Executive Chairman and CEO of xG Technology, said: "IMT and Vislink solutions remain the trusted choice of broadcast professionals for capturing unique views and transmitting action from iconic events and locations. High-profile events like the renowned Kiel Week demand the performance, range, reliability and flexibility that our systems provide."

Martin Geritz, Head of Sales for Sales Cube, added: "Sales Cube is a proud partner and reseller of Vislink solutions and furthermore helps all customers with special developments and integration, as well as onsite support if required. Sales Cube specializes in the integration of professional and innovative video transmission systems for media and broadcast productions around the world."
