The Remote Communicator live transmission system is being shown for the first time in Europe at IBC2017.
The Quicklink-developed offering comes in a 19-inch 2U rack and allows users to stream video and audio to a web browser, and return audio and video in real time with ultra-low delay. The return feed can be received at a studio with a Quicklink Server and be outputted via SDI or NDI.
The company suggests that Remote Communicator could be used to create ad-hoc ultra-low delay video/audio contributions from a device using a web browser or to share high-quality return video to a remote user.
The Remote Communicator is controlled and managed by the Quicklink Communicator Portal (QCP) which provides management of remote users and enables administrators to create users and oversee server status and availability.
Remote Communicator works with both iOS and Android devices.
Also on show is Quicklink’s Mobile Encoder, a device for transmitting broadcast-quality live video over IP from challenging network locations.
