he transmitter is a highly
portable and versatile cameramount transmitter that enables
broadcasters to transmit over
Cellular, COFDM, WiFi and Satellite
connections.
A powerful combination of
IMT’s COFDM microwave and
Dejero’s patent-pending adaptive
bitrate cellular bonding and
portal management system, it
is manufactured by Nucomm, a
Vitec Group brand, and a leader
in advanced digital microwave
systems serving the broadcast,
sports and entertainment markets.
Driven by innovation from both
companies, the new Connect Live
system is the most versatile SD/HD
live-news wireless camera system
on the market today.
Initiating a transmission is as
simple as attaching the Connect Live
transmitter to the camera, selecting
the desired latency and video quality,
and pressing the “start” button. At
the push of a button, Connect

Live can be switched between
microwave (COFDM) and cellular
mode for live video transmission
catered to your current needs.
The combination of microwave
and cellular capabilities is an industry
first, providing broadcasters with
the highest flexibility of any product
on the market. The Connect Live
transmitter brings a whole world
of immediacy and on-scene
realism to live broadcasting and
news coverage.
For every day news gathering,
users can employ the bonded
4G LTE cellular links with up to
four internal cards to transport
live HD video back to the station.
The Connect Live system features
built-in cellular modems and highly
optimised integrated antennas
as well as interfaces for Wi-Fi,
Ethernet and COFDM. When the
story is critical and cellular network
capacity declines, news crews can
feel confident the story will get
covered by switching to microwave.

The Nucomm Connect Live at work

The transmitter features adaptive
bitrate and bonding technologies to
compensate for changing network
conditions by adjusting frame
rate, resolution, encoding rates
and streaming parameters. This
enables the system to bond up to
four cellular 3G or 4G LTE networks,
as well as any combination of WiFi,
Ethernet or Ka-band satellite to
provide maximum throughput for
video transmissions.
Depending on whether the latency
or video quality is more important,
the operator can chose between

interview, balanced or high-quality
preset modes on the Connect Live’s
intuitive five-inch, high-resolution
touch-screen display. In COFDM
mode, the unit covers the entire
2GHz band. Additionally, the unit
is available for the 5.8-GHz nonlicensed band.
We unveiled Connect Live at NAB
2013 to rave reviews and won two
prestigious industry awards. We look
forward to demonstrating Connect
Live to our European customers at
the 2013 IBC Show.

Sonnet Technologies Releases Enhanced xMac Mini Server
S

onnet has introduced a
significant upgrade of its
popular xMac mini Server, a
Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express
(PCIe) expansion system and 1U
rackmount enclosure for a Mac
mini with a Thunderbolt port.
The xMac mini Server
accommodates one full-length,
full-height PCIe card and one halflength, half-height (low-profile) card.
The updated xMac mini Server now
supports a double-width PCIe
card’s daughter card and includes
BNC connector mounting holes
on the enclosure’s rear panel. In
addition, the length of the xMac
mini Server is now just 15.8 inches,
making it ideal for deployment in a
wider range of popular mobile racks,
carts, and rack bags.
Some PCIe
c a rd s ,
such

as RME’s HDSPe MADI FX card,
Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink 4K
Extreme, and the Lynx AES16e-50,
include a daughter card that
normally occupies the adjacent
PCIe card space. The enhanced
xMac mini Server is now able to
accommodate a daughter card via
a special mounting bracket included
with the system, thereby saving the
additional PCIe card space. Also,
with the addition of two holes for
mounting BNC connectors on the
rear panel of the xMac mini Server,
operators now have a convenient
place to mount HD/SDI connectors
for PCIe cards, such as the RED
ROCKET, without having to use a
bracket that blocks the use of a
PCIe card slot. To better support
customers that require a

Enhanced xMac mini Server shown with PCIe cards installed (not included)

very quiet work environment, a quiet
fan module is available as an option.
Sonnet’s newest xMac mini Server
and the previously announced xMac
mini Server 2H transform a Mac
mini computer into a full-fledged
expandable rackmount server. This
enables users to harness the power
of PCIe cards such as full-size pro
video capture and processing, digital
audio interface, DSP accelerator,
FireWire, RAID controller, 10 Gigabit
Ethernet, eSATA, and other PCIe
cards. Both Sonnet expansion
systems mount the Mac mini inside
a specially designed 1U rackmount
enclosure containing a Thunderboltto-PCIe expansion system with
two PCIe 2.0 slots that connect to
the computer’s Thunderbolt port
via an included Thunderbolt cable.
This allows the Mac mini to use
expansion cards normally usable
only in the Mac Pro, making it a
smaller, lighter, and quieter stand-in
for the discontinued Xserve.
The xMac mini Server and xMac
mini Server 2H include a 100W power
supply and employ variable-speed
fans to cool the cards and computer.
An ultra-quiet fan module option

for cool-operating cards is now
available. The Mac mini’s Gigabit
Ethernet, USB 3.0, and HDMI
interfaces are extended to panelmounted connectors on the back
of the unit, and a USB 3.0 interface
and power switch are mounted on
the front. An xMac mini Server’s
second Thunderbolt port enables
the daisy-chain connection of
additional Thunderbolt peripherals.
These features make the xMac
mini Server ideal for use in many
fixed and mobile applications, from
video ingest and editing stations to
pro audio recording rigs, and from
metadata controllers to back-office
RAID servers.
The xMac mini Server and xMac
mini Server 2H, like Sonnet’s line of
Echo Express PCIe-to-Thunderbolt
expansion chassis, require the use
of Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe
expansion cards.
Compatible cards fall into
numerous categories including pro
audio, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SAS/
SATA RAID controllers, and video
capture and editing.
