With both the latest H.265 compression and the option of using H.264 encoding for legacy workflows, the unit is capable of supporting up to 12MB/sec over bonded networks and can transmit back to a studio or to the cloud using up to and including 4 or 6 internal 3G/4G/5G modems, Wi-Fi, LAN and/or satellite. It can bond all these connections to make a single high bandwidth connection. By using adaptive bitrate, the Baselink dynamically optimizes the video feed based on the available bandwidth ensuring high quality video delivery, even in the most demanding of situations.
The lightweight and small sized encoder can fit into a supplied backpack and can be battery powered via an installed vLock/ Anton Bauer battery plate, allowing the use of standard camera battery’s for remote operation.
At the receiving location, a MVP decoder can be installed allowing the creation of either an HD-SDI stream or an IP stream for a CDN, OTT platforms, social media or a Video Management System (VMS). A subscription based cloud decoding platform is also available negating the need for an on-premise decoder if not desired.
All encoders in the field can be remotely managed and controlled via LinkMatrix, a free-to-use management platform that operates from a browser on any device. This means non-technical journalists and production people in the field do not need to manage the units directly.
