AVIWEST RACK180 3G/4G Bonded Cellular Video Transmission System Rack Version with ASI Output



Ultimate 3G/4G Network System for Robust Video Transmission with 2nd High Bit Rate Encoder with ASI Output. Perfect addition for your Ka Satellite Truck

Compact Video Transmission System with Powerful Hardware and Software:

The RACK180 features the same powerful hardware and software core as the industry-leading DMNG PRO180-RA, including eight 3G/4G modems, a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and two best-in-class H.264 video encoders, all housed in a compact 1RU chassis that is easy to integrate into news gathering vehicles.  The RACK180 encoder requires a physical StreamHub Receiver or Cloud StreamHub Receiver.

The RACK180 has 8 SMA antenna connectors on its rear panel to plug 2 AVIWEST QUAD wideband external cellular antenna arrays that can be easily installed on the roof of a vehicle. The QUAD antennas are designed to strengthen the signal transmission in a critical environment such as live from crowded areas.


Low power consumption and reduced operating costs: 

The RACK180 features an average power consumption of 30 watts and maximum power consumption of 42 watts. By providing operators with a low-power, broadcast-quality encoder, the RACK180 lowers overall capital and operating expenses.



The RACK180 has several video inputs (HD/SD-SDI, HDMI 1.3, composite video, and analog audio) and other interfaces including an ASI-MPEG-2 transport stream output, two Gigabit Ethernet outputs, two USB-2 ports, plus an SD memory card slot for maximum flexibility in the field.


Live and Files Forward over Satellite & Cellular Networks:

The RACK180 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 of a drop in bandwidth due to a congested network.


Live and Files Forward over Satellite:

The RACK is compatible with the major portable satellite uplink solutions such as Inmarsat BGAN, 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 Bonded Cellular Networks:

The RACK180 has 8 internal 3G or 4G modems, an internal Wi-Fi modem plus 2 Ethernet ports to stream a live video over bonded IP networks to a StreamHub. Combined with two QUAD wideband cellular antenna arrays, the RACK180 can stream live footage even in critical conditions such as from crowded areas.

High Gain Bonded Cellular Antenna


Live to any CDN:

The AVIWEST 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.
