Watch and learn from MC Patel about the top four use cases in which real-time correction of lens distortion can transform live video into a valuable addition to your live production.
Small broadcast-quality HD cameras with wide-angle or fisheye lenses are both a practical and cost-effective solution for live sports and reality TV broadcasts, as well as a host of other applications including medical, forensics/security, concerts and other live events, covert wildlife image capture, electronic newsgathering, and more. Due to their compact size and lower cost, such cameras can be deployed with much greater flexibility than larger broadcast cameras to bring viewers new or unusual perspectives. Unfortunately, the wide field-of-view lenses typically used with such “micro-cameras” give rise to lens distortion and curvilinear perspective image artifacts resulting from camera positioning. To incorporate live video from HD micro-cameras into high-quality applications, broadcasters and production companies must be able to correct for these distortions in real-time.
 
 
Highlights:

* Removal of Curvilinear Artifacts
* Adjustment of Rotation
* Virtual Camera Off-set
* Optimization of Zoom

 

Geometry plays a big role in the world in which we live. Straight lines and the shapes they create are included in much of what we see before us. Geometric optical lens distortion changes the way lines appear on the screen. This is a problem facing many modern videographers as the use of fisheye and wide-angle live HD cameras become more fluent in the mainstream recording.
While wide-angle cameras provide an added level of depth which standard lenses don’t capture, it does pose some problems in terms of rectilinear projection. The lines which were once straight beginning to curve and distort around the edges of the shot. This optical aberration makes it difficult for viewers to determine what they’re looking at in the moment.
For videographers with the time to correct these issues during the editing process, it’s not a problem. However, live broadcasters recording sports games, local news, research for the medical industry, or even corporate AV, are unable to rectify the distortion before the image reaches viewers. This is where VidOvation’s AlphaEye becomes an asset.

Jim Jachetta (00:00):
Good morning everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO and co founder of VidOvation. Today we have a very special guest, my good friend MC Patel. He is the CEO of Alpha Image, and today he’s going to talk about a very innovative product he has called the Alpha Eye. Now all of us people in the television industry and the video industry, we’ve all seen distortion or artifacts in video with fisheye lens, wide angle lenses.
Jim Jachetta (00:49):
So I’ll give you an example. It’s not uncommon to have a wide angle shot above a basketball basket on...]]>

The Internet Video Problem:

The Internet was never designed for Video

“Best-Effort” Transport Only
No Prioritization
Routers Drop Packets to Alleve Congestion
Dynamic Load Balancing Reorders Packets

Traffic is either UDP or TCP

UDP Transport is Real-Time, but Lossy
No Inherent Packet Recovery
No Guarantees on Packet Order
TCP Uses Positive Acknowledgement Packet Recovery
Not Real-time: Pauses for Unrecoverable Packets
Max Bitrate Limited by Distance & Node Hops


The Internet Video Solution: ARQ – Automatic Repeat Request

Automatic Repeat reQuest
Feedback Requests Resending Lost Packets
Receiver Delay to Allow Time for Recovery
Add Receiver Buffer to Create Delay
More Resilience → Larger Buffer
Lower Latency → Smaller Buffer
Capable of 100% Recovery
Capable of Full Recovery with Large Loss %
Zero Overhead on a Clean (Lossless) Network


Jim Jachetta (00:00:00):
Good morning, everyone. Jim Jacquetta here with VidOvation Corporation. I’m the CTO
and co-founder. Today, we have a very special guest, Ron Fellman, PhD, founder, and CEO of QVidium
Technologies. Thank you, Ron. Welcome.
Ronald D. Fellman (00:00:23):
Thank you, Jim. As you mentioned I’m Ron Fellman. I’m the founder and CEO of QVidium. Before that I
was the founder and CEO of Path1 Network Technologies. Today, I’m going to talk about ARQ for video
transport, how it works, a little bit of the history of how we came to invent it, and our latest product or
HD, HEVC 4k Codec.
Jim Jachetta (00:00:58):
I want to get a little gauge from some of our viewers. Are you folks transporting video over the public
internet for a live broadcast application? We’re we’re talking more than go to webinar, Skype or zoom,
something for broadcast purposes, production purposes, over the top OTT, something like that. Are you
folks streaming video over the public internet right now? Just want to get a feel for where you guys are.
Ron’s company is one of the pioneers in this area and was recently acknowledged. What was it last year,
Ron, by the Academy… Technical Arts and sciences Academy. So he has an Academy award for
technology.
Jim Jachetta (00:02:07):
So here, let me see here. Now let me… Manage the pole, no, that’s not what I want to do. I want to
close and the chair, here we go.
Jim Jachetta (00:02:18):
So here, here are the results. So you can see 60% of people are streaming 40%. Don’t have plans to
stream. Ron, we got to win them over or I hope we’re not wasting their time today. If they have no plans
to stream live, or maybe it’s my marketing people. They only do zoom, and go to meetings. They don’t
do live broadcasts, but thanks everyone for voting. So let me advance the slides here for you, Ron. And
let’s get to it.

Ronald D. Fellman (00:02:58):
All right. So as you may know, if you’re familiar with the internet, when the internet was designed back
in the sixties, it was never designed for live video. In fact, that technology didn’t even exist back then it
was designed for best effort transport. There’s no prioritization. In fact, even multicast is not allowed to
go through the internet. The routers will drop a multicast packets will drop any prioritization. So if you

Jim Jachetta (00:02):
Good morning, everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO and Co-founder of VidOvation. Today we have my good friend, Matt Hughes from V-Nova. He’s Senior VP of Global Sales. Give us a little overview Matt of what knowledge you’re going to lay on us today.
Matt Hughes (00:23):
Yeah. Thanks, Jim. And thanks for VidOvation for setting this up, and it’s important for us to have a chance to talk with you guys about V-Nova. We’re a UK London-based company, in the process of expanding as well. What we do is we’re a compression technology company. We own a bunch of patents around video compression and image compression. What we’ve done is, we’ve taken our library and perfected them to various aspects of the broadcast industry. We’ve got a few ways that we’ve worked, what I’m going to go through today, is show you some of those new technologies that are being advanced through MPEG and SMPTE, and also products that we have that offers encoding and decoding a server based system that we have in the market.
Jim Jachetta (01:17):
Well, some of your technology you’re going to present Matt is kind of a new approach or a contrarian approach so I put together this little questionnaire to kind of see where customers are at. Everyone should be able to see. We asked the question, what video codec or codecs do you use today and this is a multiple choice. It’s multiple choice but you can also pick multiple things. So if you use uncompressed and JPEG 2000, we’d love to hear from you, just kind of see where you folks are at today in your IP video codec uses right now.
Jim Jachetta (02:03):
So it looks like, Oh, wow. It’s pretty evenly distributed here. Looks like even except for JPEG XS. So here, let me put this up. Oh, what did I do? Ah. I hit the wrong button. Hold on, hold on. Close it. Now I share, there we go.]]>

Jim Jachetta (00:01):
Okay. Good morning, everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO and co-founder of VidOvation. Today we’re going to talk about a few applications we’ve done recently for at-home production, in particular the PGA TaylorMade Driving Relief charity event a few weeks ago was a skins game. But at home production, REMI production has been a very, very hot topic as of late. VidOvation and our partners such as AVIWEST, we’ve been promoting, we’ve been successfully implementing and deploying at-home and REMI production for the better part of five years. We’ve done numerous sporting events, we’ve done numerous live reality television events. Some of our partners have created this new category of live unscripted television shows such as Live PD, Live Rescue and others. Today, we’re going to start talking about this event with the PGA.

Jim Jachetta (01:12):
It was a very successful event. As we all know, we all on a lockdown, we’re all maintaining social distancing. If we are closer than six feet, we’re supposed to wear masks to lessen the curve or mute the curve so we don’t spread the COVID-19. So this actual charity event was to help people on the front line, help nurses, support the CDC and others who are struggling with this pandemic. The event actually raised five and a half million dollars, way above projections, and it was a great game. I don’t know if any of you out there are golf fans, but it was fun watching. It was a charity event, but they’re still professional athletes, they’re still competing with each other. They are a little trashed, with the polite golf trash talking of each other. It was great.

Jim Jachetta (02:20):
The event was put out over the usual … The rights holder was NBC, NBC Sports, Sky Sports overseas, and then it was streamed out OTT to other entities. We were very proud of VidOvation, and our partner, AVIWEST, were very proud to be part of this landmark event. So what was the workflow? What was the logistics? So the event was at the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach in Florida, and this is a private club. I believe one of the players,]]>

Transcript – Live Contribution & Content Sharing With AVIWEST

Jim Jachetta (00:00:00):
Sure, we’re recording. Let me just see. Yes, we are recording. Okay. Good morning, ladies and
gentlemen. I’m Jim Jachetta CTO and cofounder of VidOvation Corporation. Today we have my good
friend Florian Kolmer from one of our key partners AVIWEST. This is the number four webinar we have
today about live distribution and content sharing solutions. Florian is in charge of business development
here in the US for AVIWEST. I haven’t seen you in person for a while Florian. I look forward to going on
the road with you at some point in the future I hope, but tell us what’s going on there and France and
tell us what you’re going to talk about today.
Florian Kolmer (00:00:57):
Oh, quickly in France the situation is improving now, so things are reopening. Businesses are reopening
and we hope the situation will improve in June and by the summer be back to normal. We’ll see, but for
now we’re still taking some social distancing measure and staying safe. I hope you’re all safe-
Jim Jachetta (00:01:17):
Yes.
Florian Kolmer (00:01:18):
… and thank you for [inaudible 00:01:19] today the line today to this webinar. Thanks for the
introduction, Jim. Today we will talk about live distribution and content sharing solutions, especially
over the public internet. That’s the first webinar we are doing both [inaudible 00:01:36] products and
technologies. If you miss the previous webinar, you can watch them online. Don’t be afraid or surprised
if we are not telling much about our bonded cellular products, [inaudible 00:01:49] today, because
today it’s more focused on the user end of the workflow for the distribution part.

Florian Kolmer (00:01:58):
I just want to tell you that you are welcome to ask questions including during or after the presentation,
and Jim and I and myself, and probably Jim if I’m talking more will be pleased to answer to you. You
have a questions panel, you can just write any question.
Jim Jachetta (00:02:20):
Yeah, I’m playing the role of producer, so I’ll check the chats and the questions, so please feel free
Florian and I set up a little, little poll, a little questionnaire just to see where you folks are at in your
workflow in your day to day. Just want to see how you folks are using, how are you distributing … Are
you distributing and sharing live content, and if so what means are you using today? Are you planning
on … Do you use satellite? Do you use a fiber or a managed IP network? Do you use the public internet
or an unmanaged network?
Jim Jachetta (00:03:11):
Do you share primarily online and social media or no you’re not really doing anything now, but hopefully
plan to in the future? It’d be just good for Florian tonight to know where you folks are at. Okay. Let me
see here. Looks like we got a pretty good vote here. Let me see and then I should be able to share it.
Yeah. It looks like … Actually, most of our attendees today Florian are doing online and social, a satellite
and public on peeps … Quarter of the audience is already doing unmanaged. A quarter is doing satellite

Our foremost experts in broadcast, sports, news, and video production are going to walk through new transmitters and encoders portfolio enhancements.
A far less costly alternative to traditional telecom, satellite, fiber, and microwave connections, the AVIWEST transmitters send broadcast-quality video through the public internet or unmanaged networks, which are practically free. The transport of broadcast-quality video and audio is made possible by AVIWEST’s robust bonded cellular capability, SafeStreams Transport (SST). Designed to facilitate mobility, quick news coverage, interviews, and sports, the 5G ready PRO3 and AIR Series provide a camera-mount, backpack, or belt-pack alternative to satellite.
We will also feature our new Rack-mountable RACK200 and RACK300 Series designed for remote field and at-home productions.

Jim Jachetta (00:00:01):
Good morning, everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO and co-founder of VidOvation. Once again, I have the pleasure of having my friend, Florian Kolmer, and colleague from AVIWEST as a guest. Today, I think we’re going to get into more of the products, the nuts and the bolts, and the features, and the different functionality. Is that correct, Florian? What are you sharing with us today?
Florian Kolmer (00:00:29):
Yes, right. Thank you, Jim. So today’s webinar is about more of one side of the AVIWEST workflow and range of products. It will be about the transmitters and encoders we are manufacturing and developing. Thank you for joining us today. Today’s webinar, which is part of a season of webinars, I think it’s our fourth one together, Jim?
Jim Jachetta (00:00:55):
Yes.

And we have been covering different subjects, from remote production to bonding. And one of the previous webinars was where [inaudible 00:01:06] NAB, with the announcements of our new products, and 5G integration as well. But today… and you are welcome, of course, to download and watch them online.
Florian Kolmer (00:01:17):
But today it’s for Houston’s AVIWEST transmitters and encoders. So we have a full range of products doing bonded cellular, but not only, for different use cases and workflows with different designs. And now we’ll be focused on this. Of course, I will explain all its integration into AVIWEST workflow, but we will speak mostly about computers.
Jim Jachetta (https://vidovation.com/?p=262670 https://www.vidovation.com/blog/aviwest-nab-updates-2020#respond https://www.vidovation.com/blog/aviwest-nab-updates-2020/feed/ 0 <p>Our foremost experts in broadcast, sports, and news production are going to walk through exciting portfolio enhancements initially planned to be showcased at NAB by AVIWEST. It will include an update on our 5G transmitters, the new rack-mount encoder RACK200 and RACK300, and much more. What I want to start with is this Emmy Award story. So over the last two years, we have been very delighted to be awarded at NAB with an Emmy award for our bonding technology. So it's the second year in a row we are getting this award. Unfortunately, we missed the ceremonies this year, but still we got that Emmy. This Emmy Award is about our bonded cellular technology, which is called SST. SST is our proprietary IP protocol being used in all of AVIWEST products, providing a very reliable and robust transmission paths over unmanaged IP networks. Unmanaged IP at first of course can be cellular, but it can be public wifi, public long-range internet, or best report satellite services. </p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.vidovation.com/blog/aviwest-nab-updates-2020">AVIWEST NAB Updates – New RACK Field Encoders & 5G Cellular Transmitters [Webinar Recording]</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.vidovation.com">VidOvation Corporation</a>.</p> Our foremost experts in broadcast, sports, and news production are going to walk through exciting portfolio enhancements initially planned to be showcased at NAB by AVIWEST.

Jim Jachetta (00:00:02):
Good morning everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO and founder of VidOvation. Today, I have my good friend, Florian Kolmer, who’s Sale Director for the US at AVIWEST. Florian is more than your typical salesperson. He’s a network engineer. He knows the AVIWEST product line inside and out. He knows IP networking, IP transport inside and out, and he’s going to tell us today about some new things that would’ve been announced at NAB this year, So this is… I’m really looking forward to your presentation today, Florian.
Florian Kolmer (00:00:39):
Thank you, Jim. I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe during this particular time.
Jim Jachetta (00:00:45):
Yes.
Florian Kolmer (00:00:47):
Today, we’re in part of our season of new webinars. We have been deciding to make a virtual NAB webinar to replace what we were looking to announce and showcase during the show. So if you have been missing some of the previous webinars, you can watch them online.
Florian Kolmer (00:01:08):
Some of them have been dedicated to remote production, some of them are dedicated to AVIWEST products, and there will be more coming. Another one coming next week will be about 5G technologies. We’ll speak about 5G today, but not as much in details as the next webinar is planned to.
Jim Jachetta (00:01:30):
Right.
Florian Kolmer (00:01:30):
So this one is more about the specific new products we are launching now, new technologies and how they will change workflows for broadcast production. [crosstalk 00:01:44]
Jim Jachetta (00:01:45):
Thank you, Florian, and you mentioned other webinars. VidOvation has been doing a webinar every Wednesday. There’s a series of four webinars from AVIWEST from Florian. This is the second in the series so please sign up for those. Florian and I would like to know where you folks are at in your bonded cellular usage.
Jim Jachetta (00:02:15):
Do you folks use bonded cellular right now? Is it something you’re considering? Is it already in your workflow? Is it planned for your workflow? Or you really don’t know? Or no one has a plan for it yet? Or you don’t have any future plans? So if you guys could take a quick second to let us know where you guys are at, that’d be great.
Jim Jachetta (00:02:44):
I could see now the votes are coming in and then I’ll close it, and then let me see. I’ll share it. So it seems like more than two thirds of you are using bonded already. So good for you. You’ve been using this technology for a while.
Jim Jachetta (00:03:06):
A third of you are not using have a plan to, and I guess everyone has some plan or is currently using bonded. So no one has eliminated bonded cellular as an option in their transmission and contribution and distribution plans. So let me hide this. You have control, Florian.

It encourages and empowers journalists to produce more video stories using their smartphones, in a quick, discreet, and flexible manner.
Jim Jachetta:                      Good morning, everyone. I’m Jim Jachetta, CTO of VidOvation, and today I’m joined by my good friend and colleague, Florian Kolmer. He is a sales director for the US for AVIWEST. He’s more than just a sales director. He’s a network engineer. He knows the AVIWEST product line inside and out. So, he’s not your typical sales guy, for sure. He designs systems, so Florian’s going to lay some knowledge on us today about mobile journalism. Tell us a little bit about what we’re going to talk about today, Florian. Welcome.
Florian Kolmer:                 So, thank you, Jim, for the introduction. So, the topic of today’s webinar is mobile journalism. So, especially during this time where everybody is staying at home or trying to be alone, alone in their normal life, daily life, alone in front of the camera, alone managing the camera, alone doing the production, basically.
Florian Kolmer:                 So, today’s webinar we explain all new solutions that are designed to do mobile journalism and one man crew journalism, as well. So, that’s the subject of today’s webinar. I will start with an introduction about what mobile journalism is, what it can do, what you can do with those the new technologies and products and then we will go a bit more technical about the MOJOPRO solutions by AVIWEST, which products we can provide, what the features they’re offering, how you can use them and then I will talk a bit more about very specific IT technology, which is behind it and which is making it much more reliable and high quality for broadcasters, proficient and production company prelaunch journalist compared to [inaudible 00:02:21] video apps for smartphones you can easily find on the marketplaces like Apple store or Google.
Jim Jachetta:                      Mm-hmm (affirmative). Well, so Florian, I have a little poll, a little survey but I want to ask people, do they use MOJO now? Maybe define what that is first so people know where we’re coming from. If they’re not familiar with MOJO or the term mobile journalism, maybe speak to that, then I can put the poll up.
Florian Kolmer:                 Sure. Mobile journalism is a way of producing live and recorded video content in an easy, mobile and portable way using smartphone technologies. In most of the presentation I will show pictures with smartphones but of course it could be using tablets as well.
Jim Jachetta:                      Okay, okay.
Florian Kolmer:                 [crosstalk 00:03:16] with tablets and smartphones, for example. Most of our users doing mobile journalism is synonymous of one man crew as well. It’s not necessarily monetary. You can still have a cameraman behind a smartphone but usually it’s a way to be ...]]>

Jim Jachetta:
Good morning everyone. Jim Jachetta here from VidOvation. I’m the co-founder and CTO. Today we have a very special guest. My friend Jesse Foster from MultiDyne, he’s the director of products in Western sales. He’s going to lay some fiber optic knowledge on us, particularly how to use studio cameras in a multi-camera production environment, a live production environment, right, Jesse?
Jesse Foster:
Correct. That’s right.
Jim Jachetta:
All right. So lay some knowledge on us.
Jesse Foster:
Okay. So thanks for joining everybody. So I am located in the Los Angeles area and report back to the MultiDyne headquarters in Hauppauge, Long Island, New York. And a little history on the company. We’ve been around since 1977 and over the years we’ve focused primarily on these markets and with these applications that are on the right hand side of the screen. For the sake of this presentation, we’re going to be focused on these areas of venues and stadiums and live stage events, primarily with the studio signal extension side of things. And touch on what we can do with PTZ and POV operator lease cameras, if that’s a real phrase.
Jesse Foster:
Other areas of interest that you might see here, follow up with myself or Jim afterwards, we can get into what we do in the military space and streaming and so forth. One of the main through lines that you’ll see through this presentation is our leveraging of the SMPTE fiber optic spec in the United States. It’s this SMPTE 304M connector. You see it’s an international standard. It’s an international technology that’s been standardized by multiple bodies, that I have listed here. The connector is then utilized with the SMPTE 311M spec of cable, which you can see on the right hand corner of the screen there. It is comprised of two single mode fibers, which means your bandwidth is theoretically, it’s limitless to some degree.
Jesse Foster:
There’s also two power cables and two low voltage signal wires. So it’s a all in one a connection that if you just imagined once you start seeing the breakout of signal IO that we can do on our products, what that would be traditionally in the copper sense, it would just be a very large loom of copper, that’s very heavy and is very distance limited. So this technology is, it’s streamlining and it enables workflows that are not achievable with copper. And in the cases where we don’t have the SMPTE 311 cable, whether or not it’s an older stadium or a studio facility, we have techniques to get the payload onto a single fiber optic tactical single mode cable, and inject power at the receive side, or at the camera side.
Jesse Foster:
So the message of we can turn any camera into a SMPTE camera, it really is applicable to any type of video source that you might have. It could be a VTR that we could hang on the end of our transmission system. So it’s a throwback VTR server or something like that. So you’ll see that we have a very not platform specific. We’re very universal in our solution. So really you guys will probably find some applications that I don...]]>

Learn How AVIWEST Safe Streams Transport (SST) Transmits Live Video over Cellular and Internet



Tom Butts:
All right, the little hand’s on the one, the big hand’s on the three. That makes it 1:15, and time for the first session for the mobile. Who’s got it? Also, no one has mobile journalism or mo-jo for short? I’m Tom Butts, content director for TV Technology. Thank you for joining us today.
 


Tom Butts:
A few housekeeping things, we’re going to be going … we’re going to have probably about maybe five or ten minutes at the end for questions, or any time you feel like asking a question during this session, feel free to raise your hand. We also have some schedules in the back. At a glance, basically, one piece of paper that allows you to navigate what the various studios are offering today. Thank you again for joining us.
 


Tom Butts:
This is called Real News: New Technologies in Mobile News Gathering, and if you read the description, we didn’t really have, we didn’t talk about in the headline exactly what we’re talking about. Really, we’re talking about bonded cellular and the evolution of … we used to call it bonded cellular. We in the industry, we’re still not sure what to call it. We have called it … we call it IPENG. It’s basically using IP out in the field or anywhere you are to acquire and distribute video.
 


Tom Butts:
No, in ye olde days of broadcasting, up until about a decade ago, when you had to cover a news event, you had to fire up the news van, or you had to fire up the satellite news gathering truck, and you had to get the breaking news. Now, you don’t have to do that as much anymore. There’s still a lot of news vans out there, but they’ve taken on new roles, I think, in many cases, in the way that bonded cellular has seriously revolutionized not only the broadcast industry, but so many other industries. And we will talk about those today.

Jim Jachetta:                      Great. Okay, we’ll get started. Good morning, everyone. This is Jim Jachetta. I’m the CTO and co-founder of VidOvation Corporation. VidOvation, we’re the master distributor in the US for a company out of Rennes, France called Aviwest.
Jim Jachetta:                      I’m sure we’ve talked to many of you about the Aviwest technology. We’ve deployed Aviwest with Turner Sports, CNN. Aviwest technology has helped make shows like Live PD possible, and today we have a very special guest. Some of you guys and gals might be tired of hearing from me on webinars, so we’re very happy today to have Samuel Fleischhacker.

Jim Jachetta:                      Samuel has been with Aviwest as a senior product manager for almost two years now. Samuel is a 20 year veteran in the broadcast television space, in coding video transport over IP. He’s worked for brands such as Phillips, Telos, Thompson, and Harmonic, and we’re really happy today to have Samuel tell us more about the special … we get asked every day, “What is the one thing that makes Aviwest different? What is the big differentiator?”
Jim Jachetta:                      It’s a lot of different things. There’s a lot of uniqueness to their technology, to their software, to their antennas, to their modems, and their protocol, et cetera, but I think if we were to start with one thing, it’s the Safe Streams Transport technology, and Samuel is going to tell us more about that today, so thank you, Samuel.
Jim Jachetta:                      How are you?
Samuel F.:                           I’m fine, thank you, Jim, and welcome, everybody. I’m very pleased to present this first webinar session, which is part of a larger set of sessions organized by VidOvation and Aviwest. In the next session, we will focus probably on the product more especially, or on some use cases, but today we will, as you mentioned, talk a lot about our technology which helps us to perform [inaudible 00:03:06] role and assists the transport of video over, and manage IP networks.
Samuel F.:                           This Emmy-awarded technology is named SST, which stands for Safe Stream Transport Protocol, and on Aviwest, which is a French company created 11 years ago, we are today on the third generation of SST, so the SST V3, which is implemented in our latest generation of products.
Samuel F.:                           What is SST? SST is a technology, a patented technology, which will help you to transport videos, audios, and data wherever you are in the world, in the field, even if you are moving with your camera or with your stem, and to deliver these to your control rooms.
Samuel F.:                           The important point is that we are totally network agnostic, and that is a trend of our solutions, meaning that you can transport the videos over wifi, over traditional IP networks, LAN or WAN, as well as any type of satellite, so KA satellite, KU satellite, BGAN satellites, which have the benefit of having a different contractor, different usage.

Samuel F.:                           And finally, also, and this is the most use case we have: on cellular networks,]]>

Learn how the system works in this recorded webinar. https://vidovation.com/product/7-msec-delay-2-mile-range-broadcast-wireless-video-camera-mount-system-intercom-paint-camera-control-ab512/
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 milliseconds 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 milliseconds, 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.

Having plans in case of extreme weather conditions, and considering one size fits all solutions versus custom solutions.

Once again we find ourselves with a pile of news stories and insights from around the AV industry, and a host of guests to talk about how they affect the commercial space.






As Hurricane Dorian makes its way across the lower part of the US, we discuss what can be done to keep systems secure during extreme weather conditions like a hurricane. Looking at the protocols in place for AV during natural disasters.
London-based SPOR AV is looking to create a standard for conference collaboration rooms. Are pre-designed collaboration rooms viable for integrators? Considering when it’s time for pre-fab and time to get customized for your client.
Tim Albright:                      On this episode of AV Week, we take a look at developing a contingency and backup plan in case of a disaster. And debating bespoke versus one size fits all AV. All that and more, next on AV Week.
Tim Albright:                      The network for the AV industry. What are you listening to?
Tim Albright:                      This is AV Week, Episode 420. Recorded Friday, September 6th, 2019. Rapid AV.
Tim Albright:                           Support for AV Nation is brought to you by Peerless-AV, driving technology through innovation. And by Biamp. And by FSR.
Tim Albright:                      This is AV Week, your weekly wrap up of audiovisual news and information. My name is Tim Albright, I am your host. With us to discuss news and information we have got this week. First and foremost, my buddy and pal, and AV guru extraordinaire Mr. Brock McGinnis. How are you sir?
Brock McGinnis:               I am well. And thank you for having me on again Tim, it’s been far too long.
Tim Albright:                      Absolutely. And we will point out if you’re not watching the video, Brock McGinnis’s fancy-schmancy “AV in the AM” shirt or jacket. You can actually buy those now, so you can get ahold of
us, let us know on Twitter.
Tim Albright:                      Also with us is Cassie Berger. Cassie is from Sure, up in Chicago, welcome ma’am.
Cassie Berger:                    Thank you for having me. Happy to be here.
Tim Albright:                      Surely. And last but not least, Jim Jachetta from VidOvation. Jim and I connected right before Infocom actually this year. So welcome Jim, how are you sir?
Jim Jachetta:                      How are you, Tim? Thank you for having me. Good to be here.
Tim Albright:                      We are recording this on Friday the 6th of September. As we’re recording this, Hurricane Dorian is making its way up the East Coast of the United States. Currently, the last report I had, was that it’s right around the South Carolina, North Carolina area. The reason I bring this up, is as you are watching this, and the Bahamas got absolutely decimated. Parts of Florida were affected, parts of Georgia and on up the coast. As I’m watching this and actually talking with some folks in the industry that are being impacted by this, one of the things that we were talking about were the number of systems that were being impacted, both Audio/Visual as well as electrical and other systems such as cell phone and emergency notification systems. That led me to ask the question here, is “what can we do in the AV industry to protect ourselves, to get ourselves ready?]]>

One-of-a-Kind, Ultra-Low-Latency Links for Wireless Camera Systems https://vidovation.com/product/7-msec…
Broadcasters in the sports, live events, and newsgathering spaces — where the lowest possible delay is mandatory while preserving high video quality — are often hampered by high latency when using wireless camera systems. ABonAir’s one-of-a-kind wireless video links provide extremely low latency in a long-range, high-performance, broadcast-grade wireless system. In fact, ABonAir has achieved a remarkable 7-millisecond latency — something no other vendor has been able to achieve while maintaining broadcast quality and high reliability using industry-standard H.264 encoding.
ABonAir: 7-Millisecond Latency Using Industry-Standard H.264
Encoding Many live remote productions use wireless camera systems, but it’s difficult to control a camera from afar when latency puts you a few seconds behind the action. For example, in sports applications, when operators might be piloting a drone or controlling the iris of a remote camera, lag time in the wireless transmission interferes with the ability to keep the camera in focus with the proper exposure, which in turn negatively affects the quality. ABonAir’s flagship AB512™ and the AB507™ wireless video links overcome those technical challenges. Built on a bidirectional radio channel between transmitter and receiver, ABonAir’s wireless video links acknowledge the correct acceptance of each group of pixels, thus providing exceptionally robust and reliable transmission.
