Featuring 8 universal cellular connections (eight 3G/4G internal modems with an internal high-efficiency custom antenna array), a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and two best-in-class H.264 video encoders, the PRO180+ can be used to stream live HD video down to the receiver with minimal delay, which allows broadcasters to produce seamless live interviews.
Robust signal transmission enables live broadcasts anywhere in the world: In addition to the internal custom antennas, the PRO180+ supports most of the cellular networks deployed in the world, including Europe the Middle East, Africa, the United States, Canada, Latin America and most of Asia. Its versatility gives broadcasters the flexibility to travel everywhere in the world with a single unit without needing to replace its internal or external cellular modems.
Compact, lightweight, and portable design is perfect for in-the-field use: Weighing about 1Kg, the portable PRO180+ can be easily connected to any professional camera (e.g., SD/HD SDI, analog [BNC] and HDMI) and mounted via V-Mount, Gold Mount, or PAG plates. By providing broadcasters with a video uplink system that is easy to transport, the PRO speeds up newsgathering operations.
Simple use and control enable rapid newsgathering: The PRO is designed to automatically detect real-time network capabilities. Through a user-friendly and intuitive touch-screen interface, the PRO allows any on-the-go media professional to easily configure and operate the system as well as communicate with the studio through the IFB return channel. The units can also be controlled by the transceiver (STREAMHUB), the Management System (MANAGER), the Remote smartphone application or any device connected to the unit through the network.
Live and Files Forward over Wireless Networks
The PRO180+ has 8 internal 3G or 4G universal modems with high gain custom antennas, plus an internal Wi-Fi modem to stream a live video or forward files over bonded wireless networks.
Two AVIWEST QUAD wideband external cellular antenna arrays can be plugged into the 8 MCX antenna connectors on the unit front panel to strengthen the signal transmission in a critical environment such as live from crowded areas (street demonstrations, sports stadiums, etc.) or from vehicles on the move.
Live and Files Forward over Satellite & Cellular Networks
The PRO180+ can stream over KA band and use cellular links as a back-up or complementary connection. It enables starting streaming a live over cellular connections while driving to a location, before switching to KA band once the satellite dish is pointed. This bonding mode also ensures the transmission reliability when the performance of the KA band decreases, particularly in case of bad weather conditions or a drop in bandwidth due to a congested network.
Live and Files Forward over Satellite
The PRO180+ is compatible with the major portable satellite uplink solutions such as Inmarsat BGAN, GX, Thuraya or KA band. It can also feed any kind of satellite modulator thanks to its MPEG-2 TS ASI output.
Live and Files Forward over LAN/WAN
The PRO180+ can stream a live video over bonded IP networks to a StreamHub or to any kind of H.264 receiver from professional IRDs (Integrated Receiver and Decoder) to VLC player.
Live to any CDN
The DMNG system supports the needed protocols to stream a live high definition video directly to the Web or through any CDN (Content Delivery Network) or video streaming service platform.
