JB&A will distribute a range of Vislink solutions which enable customers to capture immersive content and stream it in real-time across distribution channels and platforms. Vislink is widely recognized for its award-winning IP Bonded Cellular Technology, which offers the ability to transmit ultra-low latency, high-quality video wirelessly or over IP with direct interfacing with cloud or remote (REMI) production workflows.
Other key Vislink offerings include solutions using artificial intelligence for video production such as vPilot, an automated, cost-effective studio system producing live-switched programs without the need for camera operators or directors, and the LinkMatrix cloud-based online interface, an elegant management platform for managing Vislink products via a browser on any device.
“We are thrilled to be working with Vislink to grow their reseller channel for its Mobile Viewpoint product lines,” said Nicholas Smith, VP of Technology at JB&A. “Remote video contribution and cellular-based video streaming continue to grow, and the Vislink line of products solves many of the issues our customers have asked us to deliver on. Vislink has taken an approach to not stop at the edge, but provide solutions that scale into the studio, offering our clients so much more value than just backhaul, and they also have been working hard to develop AI-based products for video studios and sports venues.”
The new distribution partnership with JB&A underscores Vislink’s commitment to optimize operations for customers, drive growth and be a leader across the industry. For more information about Vislink, visit www.vislink.com.
