Aviwest to showcase its live video contribution, distribution tech at NAB Show
Using Aviwest’s advanced video contribution platform, broadcasters can capture and deliver live 4K, HD and SD video over multiple unmanaged IP networks, including bonded cellular, Wi-Fi, ethernet and satellite links, according to a statement.
At the NAB Show, Aviwest will present its new agnostic story-centric solution, which streamlines the way video professionals produce and transmit live video.
The solution automates the production of video clips and story indexing. Through artificial intelligence components, it enables media organizations to better handle, explore, and browse the massive amount of content received every day.
At the heart of the solution are Aviwest Manager and the company’s StreamHub transceiver, which automatically assimilates metadata from remote field units to guarantee perfect integration with broadcasters’ production workflow.
The Aviwest Pro3 Series includes an integrated best-in-class H.265 and HEVC hardware encoder in the most compact design enclosure available. Using the HEVC video standard and being 5G compliant, the Pro3 enables video professionals to deliver high-quality news and event coverage seamlessly.
With up to 12 network links (eight cellular modems, Wi-Fi, and ethernet), a high-efficiency custom antenna array, plus Aviwest SafeStreams Technology, the new Pro3 Series allows broadcasters to deliver better video quality than ever while consuming less data. Providing high versatility, the DMNG Pro3 Series is the ideal companion for on-the-go video professionals that need a robust and reliable solution.
Featuring a powerful, ultra-lightweight design, the Air Series is perfect for on-the-move broadcasters, providing them with portable, versatile, and affordable solutions.
The Air Series combines best-in-class hardware encoders and supports 5G networks to enable flawless video quality.
The uplink system includes up to six network links (four cellular modems, one internal Wi-Fi, and one Ethernet), a three-hour internal battery and SafeStreams technology, allowing broadcasters to stream live videos seamlessly and store and forward recorded content — even during unpredictable and unmanageable network conditions.
Aviwest’s HE4000 4K UHD HEVC live encoder is perfect for real-time delivery of UHD and HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates.
The HE4000 encoder will be shown with the recent Quad CellLink, an external 3G and 4G LTE cellular transmission solution that embeds four last-generation 3G and 4G-LTE cellular modems with their SIM cards. The Quad CellLink can be mounted on a tripod or directly on the roof of a vehicle.
Together, it delivers higher performance and enhanced connection reception in critical conditions for live video transmission over bonded cellular networks. A powerful alternative to traditional satellite or microwave transmissions, Aviwest’s solution reduces video delivery costs.
Aviswest’s MojoPro application for iOS devices empowers journalists by allowing them to stream live videos flawlessly, edit video files and forward recorded content from any location over bonded 3G and 4G and Wi-Fi connections in just seconds.
The smartphone app includes new features such as an optimized interface, advanced camera settings such as focus, exposure, and white balance, dynamic resolution and video quality improvements. Easy-to-use video and audio editing features allow remote journalists to create video stories instantly.
