HEROCast is being showcased at IBC, offering broadcasters previously unseen levels of flexibility when wirelessly capturing and transmitting high quality live video, says Vislink.
Vislink claimed it has reinvented how broadcasters capture live action footage, pairing what the company said was the world’s smallest and lightest broadcast-quality HD micro transmitter, HEROCast, with a dedicated wireless receive unit, PROCeiver, to offer a complete end-to-end solution. It’s now easier than ever for technical crews to introduce point of view camera angles from any location and transmit them live for broadcast television.
HEROCast was developed in partnership with GoPro and is designed to work specifically with the GoPro HERO 4 and HERO 3+ product lines. Paired with Vislink’s technology, GoPro cameras can now transmit live HD video wirelessly for the first time. HEROCast is small enough to be mounted on helmets and the body, giving broadcasters significant flexibility when capturing live sports and events.
Simon Derry, CEO at Vislink, said, “Vislink has a long track record of creating the industry’s smallest and lightest wireless camera transmitters. Now, with HEROCast and PROCeiver, Vislink is taking this expertise and expanding the range of points of view to enable more compelling and immersive content.”
HEROCast has already been used to transmit unique perspectives and angles at NHL playoffs, the summer and winter X Games.
