Vislink, the global provider of broadcast communications technologies, has today announced the launch of its Link L1700 wireless camera transmitter at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam. Smaller and lighter than previous models, the L1700 enhances the modular design that´s made the Link series so popular with broadcast professionals, creating a highly customisable transmitter that´s suitable for any broadcast task.
The L1700 builds on the highly successful Link L1500, which was the first transmitter to have swappable RF modules and optional camera control. The L1700 is fully upgradeable and users can easily customise the transmitter to add new software and features, including web-based control over WiFi, HDMI input, ultra-low delay H.264 video encoding, video streaming over Ethernet and support for up to 1080P/60 video formats.
Swappable RF modules let the L1700 operate on bands between 1GHz and 8GHz. The transmitter can be used in both standard and high definition, but camera control is now managed within the encoder, helping to minimise the overall size and weight of the transmitter. By retaining a modular design, the L1700 will also be capable of supporting other forms of transmission in the future.
