AVIWEST’s solutions are highly regarded by industry peers, and in the past few years have been honored with two prestigious Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards, one of the highest accolades awarded to companies in the broadcast industry.
PRO460 On-the-Move 4K UHD Bonded 5G Cellular Transmitters
At IBC2021, AVIWEST will showcase its flagship 4K UHD on-the-move bonded 5G/4G transmitter, the PRO460. Designed for remote and at-home video production, the PRO460 supports 4K UHD and multicamera workflows for up to four high-resolution, fully frame-synced feeds, delivering outstanding-quality video and high performance.
The PRO460 offers a high-definition video return (up to 1080p50/60) and is available for confidence monitoring or teleprompting. The solution also supports full-duplex intercoms to optimize communication between field crews and studio operators, and innovative data bridging for remote camera control, tally light management, or control of any IP connected device during a live event.
Housing six globally compliant 5G modems and incorporating patented, high-efficiency custom antennas to ensure high-speed transmission, the PRO460 provides robust, error-free transmission over any network (i.e., cellular, satellite, IP leased line, or the public internet), ensuring low end-to-end latency, down to 0.5 seconds, thanks to AVIWEST’s two-time Emmy Award-winning SST (Safe Stream Transport) technology.
All-New RACK400 Premium 4K UHD and Multi-HD Encoder
At IBC2021, AVIWEST will showcase its new RACK400 video encoder, which is driving efficiencies for sports remote production. Designed in compact half 1U form factor, the RACK400 supports 4K UHD and multicamera workflows, with up to four high-resolution, fully frame-synced feeds.
The RACK400 provides robust, error-free transmission over any network (cellular, satellite, IP leased line or the public internet) at low latency, down to 0.5 seconds, thanks to AVIWEST’s double Emmy® Award-winning SST technology.
As a remote production encoding solution, the RACK400 offers all of the features needed to ensure maximum efficiency from a central facility. The encoder enables perfect video sync between multiple cameras for seamless camera switching in the studio, video return to the field for confidence monitoring, full duplex intercom between field crews and studio operators, and data bridging for remote control of cameras, tally light, or any other IP device during a live event.
