New One-of-a-Kind Ultra-Low-Latency ABonAir Wireless Links

Wireless video link provider ABonAir is renowned for providing extremely low latency in a long-range, high-performance, broadcast-grade wireless system, and VidOvation now represents ABonAir’s products in the United States. ABonAir’s one-of-a-kind solution will benefit VidOvation’s customers in the sports, live events, and newsgathering spaces, where the lowest possible delay is mandatory while preserving high video quality.

At the 2018 NAB Show NY, VidOvation will for the first time demonstrate ABonAir’s flagship wireless video link — AB512™. 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.

Most notably, the AB512 system reduces latency to only a 7-millisecond delay (also known as subframe delay) for live event coverage, multicamera productions, and any other application in which latency of two to six frames or 30-90 milliseconds is unacceptable. Low delay enables crews to produce multicamera and live shows without worrying about the lag caused by lip sync or the simultaneous operation of multiple cameras. The system features an RF spectrum analyzer which automatically selects and hops to the best RF channel without dropping a single bit, while the manual channel selection option is ideal for frequency coordination at large events.

Haivision 4K and Multi-HD HEVC Video Encoding and IP Distribution Used by Turner Sports for the Ryder Cup

At the 2018 NAB Show NY, VidOvation will demonstrate Haivision’s HE4000 4K Ultra HD (UHD) HEVC live encoder, which relies on the public internet to contribute and distribute video, thereby helping to eliminate high satellite costs. The HE4000 is ideal for real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of Haivision SafeStreams® technology to deliver live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates. At the show, visitors will see the HE4000 in action with the latest version of Haivision’s StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform, which offers integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.

Users can achieve state-of-the-art 4K and multi-HD HEVC video encoding and IP distribution by combining the HE4000 with Haivision’s QUAD Modem active antenna, which has four internal cellular modems featuring a high-efficiency, wideband antenna array. Two QUAD Modem active external wideband cellular antennas can be plugged into the HE4000’s USB ports for transmission over bonded cellular networks. The QUAD Modem offers added cellular connectivity to the entire Haivision product line. Integrated Wi-Fi enables bonded cellular hotspots and VPN connectivity anywhere, providing users with highly needed internet connectivity when working in remote locations.
