Anton/Bauer introduces new AB Direct VU HD Monitor

A collaboration between Anton/Bauer and Vitec Group sister company Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), AB Direct VU includes a hand-held monitor plus receiver – all powered using Anton/Bauer Gold Mounts and batteries. AB Direct VU is a handheld diversity confidence receiver/monitor that displays COFDM video transmissions using an internal nine-inch 16:9 format screen. The 1200-NIT, 1080i HD LCD screen features a menu-driven interface. “We are very much looking forward to introducing the AB Direct VU as part of our new AB-HDRF packages,” said Paul Dudeck, Anton/Bauer vice president of sales, the Americas. “It features a screen that utilises law enforcement-quality glass and requires minimal setup, so users can easily incorporate it into their portable workflows.” Combined with MPEG-2/MPEG-4 auto-detect decoding, AB Direct VU can receive up to 12 camera positions and send video over Ethernet to remote software or hardware decoders as well as stream shots live over the Internet via IP. It features audio connections as well as two speakers. The bandwidth is customisable between channels 6, 7 and 8. For changing frequency plans or unit naming, an administration software package is included, which enables users to configure and store up to 16 custom preset configurations. Access control ensures that users will not inadvertently corrupt production
