AVIWEST introduces pocket sized 3G/4G-LTE live uplink

AVIWEST has chosen IBC2012 for the European launch of the DMNG PRO, a pocket sized 3G/4G-LTE live video uplink system. "Journalists do not want to carry 5 kilogramme backpacks. They appreciate a kit which is compact, quick starting, reliable and easy to use,” commented Charles van Gorkum, VP, sales. The IBIS DMNG, which we introduced in 2008, was the first cellular newsgathering encoder based on dedicated hardware at a time when competitors were basing their products on slow, bulky and complicated PC-based infrastructure. The custom hardware in the DMNG PRO series allows us to deliver the same fast starting speed, intuitive interface and highly compact structure as the IBIS DMNG while leveraging more network interfaces with proprietary antenna technology and dual-video encoder capabilities." The DMNG PRO interface enables broadcasters to go live in three clicks, from either the embedded touchscreen or from the AVIWEST smartphone application. The DMNG PRO can be directly attached to a camera using a V-mount or Gold-Mount plate. It combines a variety of network interfaces including eight embedded 3G/HSPA+/4G-LTE modems with a custom antenna array, a built-in Wi-Fi modem; two auxiliary USB ports and dual Gigabit Ethernet for BGAN or Ka-Sat. Glass-to-glass latency, depending on the network, can be as low as one second, allowing seamless on-air interviews.
