VidOlink Long-Range Wireless Transmission Systems 

At the 2016 NAB Show, VidOvation will launch two new wireless transmission systems: the VidOlink Ranger2 and the VidOlink Tally & Control. The VidOlink Ranger2 is a lower-cost long-range transmission system that can transmit wireless HD video as far as 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 wide range of tally and CCU functions. It can also send data via VidOlink’s RF-over-fiber SMPTE units, delivering RF, data, and power to the receive point with a single cable.

In addition, VidOvation has expanded its lightweight and low-cost VidOlink Reacher family of long-range transmitters with three new models: 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 in which near-zero latency is important.

our ABC and CBS affiliate competitors, we’re also unique in that we cover four states in the Paducah/Harrisburg/Cape Girardeau market. This means a lot of travel in order to offer complete coverage of breaking news,” said Mike Spissinger, Chief Photographer, WPSD. “With the DMNG PRO, we’re able to reach locations that would be inaccessible for a microwave truck, and we can do live shots for a fraction of the cost and hassle of setting up a truck. Since the DMNG PRO and DMNG APP are so easy to use, even for our nontechnical journalists, we can always be news-ready. We can even go live while driving to and from the scene.” Continue reading

Cellular Video Uplink – Wireless for Sports News Grab-and-Go

Sports

Live television coverage of sporting events has long been a major focus for wireless video technology. With predetermined schedules, predictable camera locations, and carefully negotiated broadcaster rights, these events are near-ideal sites for wireless technology. Prior to an event, antenna and receiver equipment can be installed in strategic locations. RF channel usage can be coordinated and tested in advance to prevent harmful interference between systems.

Many of the systems commonly used for sports today rely on private, licensed wireless frequencies. These same technologies can also be used for outdoor concerts and other forms of entertainment. Through the use of high-gain (i.e. narrow beam) antennas, potential sources of interference can be avoided. Handheld portable cameras can be equipped with omni-directional antennas provided that adequate RF coverage can be generated in areas where the cameras will be operating. Video compression is used as needed to allow the signals from multiple cameras to fit within licensed bandwidth ranges.

News Gathering

News events fall into two broad categories: appointment-based and spontaneous. Appointment-based news includes events such as news conferences, public gatherings, feature stories, and other occurrences that allow a news team to pre-plan coverage and setup equipment in advance. In many ways, the technologies and practices used in this type of coverage are similar to those used in sports applications.

Spontaneous news coverage can be much more challenging from a technology standpoint. Fires, floods, accidents, and other unplanned events can happen in any location at any hour of the day. Traditionally, methods used for spontaneous live broadcasts typically involve sending a vehicle equipped with either a satellite uplink antenna or a telescoping mast carrying a microwave antenna. To work properly, these antennas need to be pointed directly at the receive antenna with few or no obstructions in-between. Cameras are typically tethered to the live remote vehicle using a fiber-optic, coax or triax umbilical to carry video, audio, and power to handheld or tripod-mounted cameras. In some cases, wireless links are used to connect between cameras and the vehicle.

Grab-and-Go-Anywhere Cameras

The ability to deploy a camera to an unknown location at any time without warning cangive a great deal of flexibility to broadcasters, both for covering spontaneous news events and for truly mobile applications such as in a moving vehicle. To make this scenario practical, receive antennas need to be liberally distributed around a service area to pick up signals from cameras wherever they may be located. The logistics and expense of doing this would be beyond the means of the most broadcasters were it not for the widespread availability of cell phone towers. This infrastructure, which has been installed at huge expense over several decades is a near-ideal path for live video signals throughout a metropolitan area using systems like the AVIWest DMNG Pro110 Bonded Cellular Video Uplink. Instead of having to build their own infrastructure, broadcasters can simply pay for bandwidth when and where they need it. Of course, since this infrastructure is shared by other broadcasters as well as by the general public, there is no way for a broadcaster to control how much (or how a little) bandwidth is actually available for a given video signal at a particular time and location.

Phased array satellite antenna technology is another option for moving vehicles. In this scenario a compact satellite antenna is mounted on the roof of the vehicle. Using GPS, the antenna tracks the satellite in the sky while the vehicle is in motion. One limitation of this technology is the necessity for a clear view of the satellite in the sky, which may make it impractical in urban areas with tall buildings or other obstacles.
