Advanced 4K and Multi HD HEVC Video Encoding and IP Distribution

At the 2017 NAB Show New York, AVIWEST will introduce the new A-QUAD (active quad) antenna with four internal cellular modems featuring a high-efficiency, wideband antenna array. Two A-QUAD active external wideband cellular antennas can be plugged into the USB port of the HE4000 for transmission over bonded cellular networks. The A-QUAD offers added cellular connectivity to the entire AVIWEST product line. Integrated Wi-Fi will provide users with bonded cellular hotspots and VPN connectivity anywhere, providing users with highly needed internet connectivity when working in remote locations.

AVIWEST’s HE4000 4K Ultra HD (UHD) HEVC live encoder is ideal for real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of AVIWEST SafeStreams® technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates.

At the 2017 NAB Show New York, the HE4000 will be demonstrated with the latest version of the StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform, which offers integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.

VidOvation VidOlink Reacher Extended-Range Wireless HDMI and HD-SDI Video, Tally, and Intercom Transmission System

Wireless Video

VidOlink Reacher 3000 Foot Wireless HDMI HD-SDI Transmitter Receiver

The new VidOvation VidOlink Reacher family supports the wireless transmission of HDMI, HD-SDI, tally, and two-way intercom signals up to 1,500 feet with the Reacher 1500 and 3,000 feet with the Reacher 3000. The system transmits uncompressed 4:2:2 video with less than one millisecond of latency. As a result, the director can now have two-way communication with the talent and camera operator, and the transmission of tally control lets the talent know the show is live on the air. Both the Reacher 1500 and Reacher 3000 models operate on the 5 GHz band with 10 push-button selectable channels on an LED channel display. The wireless transmission timecode and triggers are extremely useful in any production workflow, especially for video assist, sports, or any application in which wires would get in the way.

Advanced 4K and Multi HD HEVC Video Encoding and IP Distribution 

A key highlight at the 2017 NAB Show will be the transition to the HEVC video

hevc encoderAdvanced 4K and Multi HD HEVC Video Encoding and IP Distribution

compression standard. AVIWEST’s live IP video solutions support HEVC, allowing broadcasters to deliver even better video quality at lower bit rates.

AVIWEST’s HE4000 4K Ultra HD HEVC live encoder is ideal for real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 422 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams® technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and low bitrates.

Thanks to AVIWEST’s SafeStreams® technology, which combines intelligent H-ARQ algorithms with IP bonding mechanisms, the HE4000 ensures the delivery of live video even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions, enabling broadcasters to provide seamless news and sports coverage from any location around the world. By combining HEVC encoding and AVIWEST’s SafeStreams® technology, the HE4000 dramatically reduces bandwidth costs while guaranteeing superior video quality.

Advanced Cloud-Based Live Video IP Contribution 

AVIWEST’s live IP contribution system is mainly composed of the DMNG StreamHub

transceiver and the DMNG Manager management system. The system operates in virtualized mode to deliver all of the economic benefits of the cloud without compromising the performance required by today’s media environments.

AVIWEST will showcase at NAB their extended cloud-based capabilities. By supporting both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint distribution scenarios, the platform offers broadcasters the flexibility they need to stream live video content to any CDN and streaming platforms such as Facebook Live or YouTube.

Multiple input and output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP, AVIWEST SafeStreams®) are supported by the platform, enabling broadcasters to receive concurrent incoming streams from remote AVIWEST DMNG transmitters and encoders, MacBook and smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras.

PayPal & Brick City TV Chooses VidOvation’s AVIWEST Bonded Cellular for Live Streaming

Brick City TV Chooses VidOvation’s AVIWEST Bonded Cellular Solution for Live Streaming of PayPal’s ‘Local Selects Live’

LAKE FOREST, Calif. — Aug. 24, 2017 — VidOvation today announced that its AVIWEST PayPalbonded cellular technology delivered reliable and low-latency HD video feeds for “Local Selects Live,” a new interactive shopping experience from PayPal that debuted June 4. With an AVIWEST DMNG PRO180 system mounted on the video camera, the show’s roving film crew had the mobility and flexibility it needed to transmit broadcast-quality video and audio from the Melrose Trading Post flea market in Los Angeles.

Billed as PayPal’s first mobile market, “Local Selects Live” gives people around the world the ability to shop like a local from wherever they are, simply using a mobile device. Over the course of the two-hour live streaming event in June, internet personality Leandra Medine visited and interviewed 11 on-site vendors, and home viewers were able to purchase the vendors’ wares using PayPal. Without on-site Wi-Fi or hard-wired capabilities for connecting to the internet, producer Brick City TV had originally planned to use an on-location satellite vehicle to uplink the video feeds from the mobile film crew.

“Late into planning and testing for ‘Local Selects Live,’ we realized that the satellite uplink

AVIWEST DMNG PRO180 Bonded Cellular Live Streaming Link

would not give us the reliability we needed to get our feed online and keep a steady stream throughout the show. After encountering significant problems with the wireless feed from the camera to the truck dropping out, we went back to the drawing board,” said Yoav Attias, producer, Brick City TV. “Then I heard about the AVIWEST solution from a friend who had used it successfully on A&E’s ‘Live PD’ production. After testing the DMNG PRO, we realized we’d found the ideal solution.”

The AVIWEST DMNG PRO 180 uses bonded cellular technology to bond any available combination of network interfaces including local cellular and Wi-Fi networks, Ethernet, and satellite for high-quality and reliable video transmission links. Throughout “Local Selects Live,” the camera-mounted unit transmitted the live, high-quality video back to the control room, where an AVIWEST DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform streamed the video online.

“The DMNG PRO was a godsend — it really saved the day for us,” Attias added. “I had been a bit concerned about cellular bandwidth since the flea market has lots of people walking around with their phones and sharing available cellular bandwidth. But from the first second of the shoot, the system performed flawlessly and didn’t drop once. By removing the uncertainties from the technical side, the DMNG PRO allowed the creative side of our program to sing.

“I would not hesitate to recommend this system to other producers, and we plan on using it again in any situation with internet connectivity challenges. Not only was the AVIWEST gear extremely reliable, but it’s a much more cost-effective approach than uplinking to a satellite.”

More information about the AVIWEST DMNG PRO 180 and the full VidOvation product line is available at www.vidovation.com.
