Vislink debuts Cliq OFDM mobile transmitter
At IBC 2022, Vislink (Stand 1.A63) introduced its new Cliq OFDM Mobile Transmitter.
Capable of full 4k or transmission of two HD video services, the Cliq OFDM Mobile Transmitter provides broadcasters with an uncontended wireless video network connection to obtain unique and immersive camera views with complete freedom to roam. The transmitter features four stereo pair audio streams in a small form factor.
The new transmitter is designed with highest quality 4:2:2, 10-bit HEVC low latency encoding capability and is suitable for HDR broadcasts; LMS-T, ISDB-T, DVB-T/T2 modulation; RS-422 and CAN camera control system connectivity and an IP data pipe to bring full data connectivity to the edge to deliver features such as camera control or communications to third party devices.
“We are thrilled to share our latest wireless camera solutions with IBC attendees,” says Mickey Miller, Vislink CEO. “The Cliq OFDM Mobile Transmitter offers users the highest quality, low latency video that are essential for Tier 1 live event broadcasts. With its small form-factor design, production teams can really get creative in delivering unique point-of-view camera angles, which engage the viewing audience like no other. Now that we can deliver on our customers’ desire for more cameras in more locations, we are ensuring that they are not bandwidth restricted in their ambition by equipping this product with a HEVC video compression engine for ultimate bandwidth efficiency.”
With its HEVC capability, the Cliq OFDM Mobile Transmitter provides operators with the flexibility to deliver more camera views in their allocated bandwidth or wirelessly capture content over twice the distance compared to older MPEG-4 devices. In addition to support for Tier 1 live events including delivering shots from body-worn cameras, the wireless transmitters can also support a wide variety of applications including onboard vehicles, PoV cameras and drones.
Since its acquisition of Mobile Viewpoint, a leading manufacturer of bonded encoder technology for 4K video support, 5G network communication, and AI, among other advanced remote production solutions, Vislink is now able to offer a larger breadth of solutions.
