What makes AVIWEST Different?
The AVIWEST solution will end your frustrations with bonded cellular by providing additional features to help mitigate problems and limitations like poor picture quality, latency, dropouts, lack of redundancy, no DVB/ASI output, no IP outputs, no working IFB and more…
Are Two Hardware Encoders Better Than One?
Two is always better than one. This applies to encoders when you are transmitting live from the eld. All bonded cellular systems have an adaptive bit rate encoder that adjusts the video bit rate according to the available bit rate on the cellular and IP networks. Most providers will locally record the adaptive bit rate video for the record, store, and forward functions. Most customers want to record high-quality video at all times. A second encoder can be used to record high-quality, constant bit-rate 4:2:2 video for the record, store, and forward functions. You could argue the system is over engineered. A second contribution grade, 4:2:2 encoder similar to an Ericsson, Fujitsu or Ateme built in for free saves an additional cost of about $15-20K and 1 rack space in your truck.
Is Cutting the Time to Produce a Hot Story Important?
The video stream is Recorded as Fragmented MPEG4. Editors do not have to wait to edit and produce a fast breaking story. Many broadcasters will transmit live for breaking news stories. The high-quality version recorded with the second encoder is pushed near live using the store and forward functions. The production team will grab the live recording and use it as a proxy to start editing, adding graphics, etc. A few minutes after the live transmission, the high-quality version arrives in the receiver ready to nish the edits, which can be done 10-15 minutes behind the live transmission.
Why is fragmented MPEG4 recording important?
Most MPEG4 recorders require that the le or video stream nish recording before editing the le. Typically, the le sizes can be several Gigabytes in size, or minutes or hours in length. With fragmented MPEG4 recording, the les are recorded in smaller or fragmented chunks. This permits immediate use of the live and near-live recorded les. This can have a signicant impact on production workow, saving delays of minutes to hours getting produced content to air.
Is an IP Work Flow Important?
The AVIWEST DMNG StreamHub Receiver has been IP ready for over a year. All Broadcasters are planning or implementing an all IP workow. ESPN is one of the rst networks to have all IP routing for their master control. It makes sense to use a bonded cellular system that has been IP ready for over a year with multiple IP and SDI outputs. The AVIWEST DMNG StreamHub receiver can receive up to 16 DMNG PRO transmitters, DMNG Laptops, DMNG APP (iOS & Android) plus live video streams from other receivers. The AVIWEST receiver can simultaneously output up to 4 HD SDI, up to 32 IP outputs, and up to 16 IP inputs. It supports numerous protocols such as BONDING/SAFESTREAMS, RTMP, RTSP, HLS, and TS/IP. The DMNG StreamHub receiver is incredibly powerful and IP ready maximizing your return on investment.
