Bridging the Gap without Cables
Bridging the Gap: NHL Refs Get a Clear Shot with 60 GHz Wireless
Explore ways to wirelessly broadcast in a remote, hostile environment.
The NHL may have one of the most extreme environments needing to deliver a clear signal to a replay official at headquarters, not at the venue, instantly to confirm whether or not a goal was scored. A cable can’t be run through the ice, the goal gets hit by athletes skating full speed and a puck traveling over 100 MPH, and the mobile band is saturated by the fans in the arena.
Explore the ways to implement, install, and support a 60GHZ wireless camera system that can deliver a clear, uncompressed HD signal up to 500 meters.
