The 60GHz band, with a 7GHz bandwidth, promises to provide wireless broadband network connectivity at distances of up to one kilometer at data rates up to 10 Gbps.  In this presentation we’re going to look at some of the di­fferent challenges that 4K video presents in wireless transmission. If you’re a broadcaster, you might be looking for higher resolution. If you’re a sports league, you might want a higher frame rate for instant replay. We’ll touch on some of these subjects and we’ll share with you some of the future developments in the area of 4K wireless video transmission.

Jim Jachetta

Larry Jordan: Jim Jachetta is the Founder and President of VidOvation. For over 20 years, Jim’s been designing, integrating and delivering video, fiber optic and data communications systems and recently they’ve expanded into wireless video with some new technology being used by the NHL. Hello, Jim, welcome.

Jim Jachetta: Hi, thanks for having me. Pleasure to be here.
Larry Jordan: We are delighted to have you with us and let’s start with a really easy question. First, tell us about what VidOvation is.
Jim Jachetta: VidOvation is a video communications company. We manufacture solutions for wireless, solutions for fiber optic transmission, for webcasting, we make encoders to stream video over your corporate network or through the internet, but in a nutshell we help our clients move video from Point A to Point B and our tagline is ‘Moving video forward’, so we’re staying up to date with the latest technologies such as what we did for the National Hockey League, using 60 gigahertz transmission for uncompressed wireless video.
Larry Jordan: Let’s just take a second. We understand that you guys are in the business of moving video, but you’re one of the founders of the company. Why did you decide to start the company? What made that so intriguing to you?
Jim Jachetta: Well, I guess I have my dad to blame for that. My dad had an entrepreneurial spirit. My dad was an engineer at ABC, CBS and his longest and final stint was at NBC, so he worked at 30 Rock for about 12 years before starting a company called MultiDyne and, as kids, my brother and I, we always worked for our dad so junior high we helped stuff circuit boards and build a lot of his audio visual equipment, so it’s in our DNA and my dad was a great problem solver and my brother and I have inherited that work ethic of doing the never been done before and solving our clients’ problems or helping with their business workflow.

We’re holding a Webinar on 60 GHz Wireless!

Save Money with 60GHz Wireless
We understand the pain of projects hindered by the limitations of traditional cable & wireless. That’s why on Thursday, the 26th of June, we will be hosting a webinar on the 60GHz Wireless broadcasting solutions for remote & hostile locations. We will introduce ways in which you can keep under budget, whilst choosing the ideal technology & spectrum for your projects. By the end of the session, you will be an expert on the array of wireless alternatives and understand how to create a reliable wireless system for your own unique project.

60GHz for YOUR project
Your own project is no doubt different in some way from every other. It’s full of its own set of anomalies & issues. The best way to learn how to deal with these struggles is by using a strong example. In our webinar, we will use the NHL GoalCam project as an example as we walk through the underlying restraints of the project, the budget decisions, RF bands alternatives, licensed vs. unlicensed spectrums, polarization, and ultimately what made 60 GHz Wireless their best option.

The Point?
The availability of 60 GHz Wireless opens up a whole new set of operational improvements for broadcasters. If you want to learn more about it, you know where to go!

Raising the Bar in Goal-line Technology – CNBC Interview

As a solutions provider, we work with a multitude of industries. The sports industry only represents a small portion of the fields we serve. It just so happens that the sports industry has really reached out to us lately. They’re telling us of their fans disappointment in poor calls reliant on out-dated replay technology.

Sports are a tremendous piece of our culture and we get riled up over bad calls, especially in championship-type games. With VidOvation on the fore-front of goal-line technology, this issue may soon subside. This CNBC interview features controversy over recent calls in professional sports. The interview wraps up with Jim’s brief explanation of how the VidOvation In-Net GoalCam’s are renovating the goal verification and replay systems for the NHL.
