IRVINE, Calif. — March 8, 2016 — VidOvation today announced the launch of two new products in its VidOlink family of long-range wireless video transmission systems: the VidOlink Ranger2 and the VidOlink Wireless Tally & Control. The VidOlink Ranger2 is a lower-cost long-range video transmission system that can transmit wireless HD video as far as two miles. The VidOlink Tally & Control is a complementary means of adding tally and camera control unit (CCU) functionality to new or existing wireless camera systems.

In addition, VidOvation has expanded its lightweight and low-cost VidOlink Reacher family of zero latency wireless video 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.

“At VidOvation we’re committed to making field video acquisition, contribution, and distribution faster and easier than ever for our customers, with lower latency and higher video quality. Our VidOlink family is a great example of that vision,” said Jim Jachetta, executive vice president and chief technology officer, VidOvation. “Based on customer feedback and our own research into broadcasters’ ongoing requirements, we launched our lightweight and cost-effective Reacher line last year — and now the Ranger2 provides a new lower-cost alternative to our original Ranger transmission system. We now offer wireless video transport solutions that can meet any budget and span the full range of distances from 400 feet to two miles.” Continue reading

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.
