The AVIWEST PRO180 and PRO180+ Global both include up to 11 bonded IP connections via eight internal professional grade modems, 2 LAN connections, and WIFI for a total of 11 IP connections per video transmission. The standard PRO180 includes regional cellular modems.  The PRO180+ includes global cellular modems with support for 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.

What are the low latency or low delay wireless video options?

Many applications such as sports, studio, and cinema productions require a low latency camera mount wireless video solutions.  In sports a live video feed to a big screen showing live action of the field or ice requires very low latency.  In studio or cinema production low latency is required for video assist and for pulling focus.

The VidOlink Reacher family has options to transmit video 400, 1500 or 3000 feet with less than 3 msec latency.  Visit the VidOlink Reacher 400, VidOlink Reacher 1500 and VidOlink reacher 3000.  The VidOlink Reacher features good video quality at a moderate price point.   

For longer distances and the best Broadcast quality, the ABonAIR AB512 and AB507 transmit up to 2-mile range with 7 msec latency.  The AB512 Camera Mount Wireless Video Link includes Intercom and Camera Control.  The AB507 Camera Mount Wireless Video Link is a lower cost video only alternative to the AB512.

What TV content integrates with the VidOvation Enterprise IPTV system?

The VidOvation IPTV system can integrate live television content from DirecTV, Dish Network, Cable Televisions and more. Live internal video feeds from a studio, video conferencing system and other sources can also be integrated. Options are available to integrate an extensive library of media files to be played as video on demand (VOD). Options are available for digital video recording (DVR) to time-shift or record live television.

Do I need Digital Rights Management (DRM) for my Enterprise IPTV system?

In the case of DirecTV and Dish Network, they use encryption called Pro:Idiom and it can be

problematic. DirecTV and Dish Network will not turn off encryption unless you have an

approved DRM system or digital rights management system.  You want to make sure you ask your IPTV vendor, “Do you have an approved DRM system approved by DirecTV and Dish Network?” The VidOvation IPTV DRM system is approved by DirecTV and Dish Network.  DirecTV, Dish Network and the Studios all mandate encryption of all television IP streams with an approved DRM system.  The goal is to prevent copyright violations.  

What display devices can I use with my VidOvation IPTV system?

A typical RF coaxial television system is only going to allow for the distribution to specific

displays and TV’s.  Do you need to access video content over the corporate wide area network at the desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, set-top box, Smart TV, TVs, and Displays?  If yes, VidOvation IPTV is the right choices. The way users function and interact in the corporate

setting is rapidly changing. We are not bound to the displays in our offices, break rooms,

hallways, lobbies etc. We need to access our corporate content right at our fingertips on ANY

device. This is an absolute necessity for your enterprise content delivery network.

Can I integrate Digital Signage into the VidOvation Enterprise IPTV System?

Digital Signage is prevalent in every industry. You can run breaking news, welcome information, live event coverage and advertisements to the lobbies, hallways, break rooms, and more. Many digital signage display options are possible such as full screen, picture in picture and L-bar. The signage can be scheduled and automated.

ABonAir 7msec Delay Broadcast Wireless Video Link Webinar (Recorded Video)

AB512 7 msec Delay, Broadcast Quality, Wireless Video Link with 3 KM / 2 Miles range. Learn how the system works in this recorded webinar.

Wireless video systems used to have quite a bit of latency, as much as 2-6 frames, causing all sorts of audio lip sync and video delay issues. But now, the newest wireless video systems have just 7 milli-seconds latency (much less than a frame!) and use industry standard H.264 encoding – which means lip sync issues are solved and switching between various cameras and sources is seamless.

We’ve had a lot of questions about this new technology from “Just 7 milli-seconds, is that for real?!” to “How can I solve the lip sync issues we are dealing with at live events?” See how it works, ask your questions live, get a feel for the latest wireless camera systems and how they could help you. Learn about:

* New low latency, long-range wireless camera technology for broadcast

* Why super low latency (7ms delay) is needed in a wireless system

* How to connect different venues together (e.g. stadium, tunnel, locker room, tailgaters)

* Find out why you need dynamic frequency hopping

* Why 40 Mbps throughput is needed for superior video quality

Watch the recorded webinar to learn more about live wireless broadcast, how the new low latency systems really work, adaptive modulation, adaptive bitrate, and more.

ABonAir’s AB512™ systems deliver video in an unexpected 7 msec delay without compromising ABonAir’s reputation for superior video quality. In addition to the 7mSec delay, the AB500™ product family includes a proven H.264 CODEC that was explicitly designed to reduce latency and increase picture quality in wireless video systems. The range increased to a fantastic 3 KM or 2 Miles by CODEC-Wireless optimization. The system features an automatic RF spectrum analyzer which automatically selects and hop to the best RF channel without dropping a single bit. The manual channel selection option is ideal for frequency coordination. Based on RF link conditions the system features Adaptive Modulation and Adaptive Bitrate.

AB512 – ABonAir Best Wireless Video Link
The most comprehensive, feature-rich solution with all upgrade option.
ABonAir’s AB512™ wireless video system enables camera teams to transmit video directly from cameras to media centers or OB trucks wirelessly. Built on a bi-directional radio channel between transmitter and receiver, ABonAir’s systems acknowledge the correct acceptance of each group of pixels, thus provides exceptionally robust and reliable transmission. The AB512™ supports ABonAir’s Fiber Coverage Extension (FCE), which enables connection of a single receiver to multiple FCEs in various venue locations (e.g. Horse Race Track – racetrack, stables and the winning circle) or even on completely separate sites (e.g. football stadium, basketball arena and swimming pool) all via fiber cables with unlimited range.
