Vislink becomes latest SVG Europe Gold Sponsor
SVG Europe is delighted to announce its latest Gold Sponsor in the form of Vislink plc, a global technology business specialising in the collection and delivery of high quality video and associated data from the field to point of usage. Its solutions include the design and manufacture of wireless camera, microwave radio, satellite transmission and IP (Internet Protocol) technologies.
Vislink provides solutions to the broadcast market for the collection of live news, sport and entertainment events, and to the video surveillance market including government, law enforcement and public safety customers. With offices in the UK, USA, Dubai, Singapore, Australia and South Africa Vislink employs more than 250 people worldwide.
During 2012 Vislink introduced a number of new products devised to benefit the acquisition and transmission of images for news and sport, including the new Advent Mantis MSAT Portable Data Terminal, which is designed to take full advantage of emerging Ka-band satellite availability. A new Clip-On 4 camera transmitter is designed for use with HD and SD cameras and includes the latest H.264 encoding for exceptional picture quality. A new, integrated wireless camera transmitter that fits snugly inside the body of certain cameras was successfully trialled at high-profile sporting events in 2012 and is set to make its official debut in 2013.
Vislink’s chief marketing officer, Lance Hiley, comments: “Joining Sports Video Group Europe is a natural fit for us. Our Gigawave, Link and Advent brands have provided technology to sports broadcasters for many years and you’d be hard-pressed to find a high profile sports event in which our wireless camera systems were not comprehensively deployed to capture and transmit every detail. SVGE’s proven status as the leader in its field is a major factor in our sponsorship and we are delighted to now be associated with the industry’s leading advocate for the creation, production and distribution of sports content.”
