As the industry moves toward IT- and IP-based technologies necessary to deliver increasingly high volumes of data around, a UK-start up aims to take portable data devices up a level. IntraTec wireless technology, which is being distributed by Holdan, is intended to assist the live transport of HD signals from remote cameras. With ENG-style cameras now featuring proxy file streaming and H.264 on-camera encoders wireless data links are becoming increasingly common. IntraTec's range of wireless transmitters and receivers are designed to send fast streams of live data over distances of up to 10km and offer remote production crews fast internet connectivity for upload and download of large media files. “We have seen wireless encoding and streaming take off in the last twelve months, with exciting products from the likes of Teradek and Vitec Multimedia,” said Holdan’s owner Allan Leonhardsen. “IntraTec's products add significant enhancements to this kind of device, increasing transmission distances from a typical 30 metres to many kilometres, given the right terrain. Its mobile internet product will also be a great tool for production crews.” Bridge is a miniature on camera extreme-range WiFi device. It takes IP feeds from an encoder or a camera's Ethernet connection and delivers a stream of up to 450Mbps over distances of 250m with a standard antenna or 4,000m with an external antenna. Bridge Duo, IntraTec’s second product, is a dual radio unit, powered by standard broadcast batteries. It is said to deliver live data streams over 500m (or 10,000m with an external antenna), and can simultaneously transmit the feed to local wireless devices such as laptops and iPads, or any other decoder. WiFi Anywhere aggregates the data from multiple cellular networks and broadband internet connections, to make a powerful wireless hot spot. It enables the very fast transfer of data files by balancing traffic over every available data network for the ultimate performance. – Adrian Penningtonwww.holdan.co.ukwww.intratec-uk.com
