Vislink introduces IP-native Quantum wireless camera receiver
Vislink has launched Quantum, an IP-native wireless camera receiver that is said to provide high-reliability reception from wireless camera transmitters and create more efficient workflows by incorporating IP connectivity at the heart of live video production.
As Quantum delivers content directly over IP fibre networks, cutting out additional video compression stages, it can remove additional equipment Capex costs and increase video quality. It also provides in-built SRT capability to contribute video over the unmanaged internet, enabling event production to be achieved at a fraction of the connectivity costs and making delivery of new content financially viable. Quantum extends the number of RF inputs on a wireless camera receiver to 16, enabling wider area coverage and more robust RF reception through MRC and packet switching technology.
“The pandemic has forever changed the way production teams operate, and solutions that deliver greater production flexibility and lower operational costs are now critical. By putting IP connectivity at the heart of the Quantum receiver, Vislink can help content creators fully modernise their networks to deliver high-impact wireless camera images and simplify the infrastructure required to bring that content home,” said Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink.
“Built for both remote production and on-site live event coverage, not only is Quantum capable of moving compressed video around all-IP environments, it is also a SMPTE 2110-ready device which can enable more efficient operational workflows for video production environments as they also evolve to next-generation IP architectures.”
Quantum incorporates a touchscreen interface and APIs to allow integration into system control and orchestration tools. By enabling an increase in antenna locations, event production teams can achieve greater area coverage with more confidence in robust video transfer without fear of picture breakup.
Equipped with low latency video processing technology, Quantum offers multi-format video decoding that supports all major video formats including high frame rate, high dynamic range and 4k resolutions – ensuring premium video productions can benefit from the flexibility and immersive camera views that wireless camera systems can offer.
