Solo performers boost transmission

Two new transmitters – the SOLO7-OBTx and SOLO8 SDR – will be launched by Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance.

The SOLO7-OBTx is a new camera-back transmitter that features 1080p60 and 4:2:2 with integrated camera control.

It includes swappable RF modules (340MHz – 8.6GHz) and H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video encoding.

Depending on mode, latency ranges from 1s to just 10ms, which, when coupled with ultra-low power consumption, is claimed by Cobham to deliver extended performance in the field.

Also being launched is the SOLO8 SDR, a dual-input HD-SDI COFDM transmitter with integral video analytics, and IP streaming.

It includes 128GB of internal video storage and an integrated ISM band telemetry modem.

The underlying transmitter platform of the SOLO8 – which Cobham calls ‘software-defined radio’ (SDR) – is considered the cornerstone of its next generation of wireless broadcast products.
