Liberating the 4K UHD Camera and allowing viewers to “Be There Now”
Vislink, a leading global technology business specializing in the provision of advanced communications to the broadcast industry, today announced its new lightweight 4K UHD video encoder system --- providing broadcasters with the world’s first end-to-end wireless 4K UHD live video solution.
With today’s announcement, broadcasters and production companies can now provide live 4K UHD video using their wireless cameras for the very first time. The “UltraLite” module is specifically designed and optimized for integration with existing 4K UHD cameras, allowing customers to quickly, easily and cost-effectively upgrade.
“Broadcasters want to offer high quality live 4K UHD video content using wireless cameras to enhance their coverage of live events such as sports and concerts”, said Ali Zarkesh, vice president product management Vislink. “We know that being wireless creates new and different points of view for the audience, and allows the camera person flexibility when capturing action shots from different moving points. It allows the viewer to really be there and now they can do all that with UHD”
Vislink’s 4K UHD wireless video camera system provides broadcasters with a simple upgrade path if they want to move to a 4K UHD wireless live solution. They can easily upgrade their existing camera with the small, lightweight attachment that mounts onto a variety of 4K UHD cameras and, with the UltraDecoder (on the receive side), they can use their existing wireless infrastructure to provide 4K UHD live video end-to-end.
“Vislink’s UltraLite solution is a great example of our industry-leading solutions, which builds on our heritage of providing pioneering technology for broadcast systems,” added Zarkesh. “By constantly innovating, we are combining exceptional products and services, and introducing broadcasters to superior solutions that help them to do their jobs even more effectively.”
Vislink will demonstrate the new wireless technology at the NAB Show in Las Vegas from April 16-21 at booth #C6008
