BSI In Race For Live Low-Delay
4K Wireless Camera System First
ive broadcast specialist BSI has
completed a series of live tests
with the 4K version of its wireless
The company aims to be the first to
use a low-delay 4K wireless camera
system live on air at a broadcast event.
Most prime time sports events in the
UK are already aired in 4K, however
where the broadcasters are using
specialist mobile wireless cameras,
the shots are always captured at the
1080p/50/3G standard, and up-scaled
to 4K. So far, nobody has used images
from a 4K camera with a low-delay 4K
wireless link in a production.
BSI's 4K low-delay wireless
BSI aims to be the first broadcast
company to achieve this. The
company's High Definition wireless
camera back system, 'Real Freedom'
is already well established, and is a
complete working solution for live
It features integrated Ethernet
camera control including control of
audio and other key parameters. The
company's R&D teams in Watford
and Baltimore have been working
on the 4K version of this for some
time, and the first live test took place
in September at the Aviva Rugby
Premiership in Northampton.
BSI's UK Managing Director,
Tony Valentino, said: "This was the
industry's first test of a 4K low-delay
wireless camera system and there
is no doubt that it demonstrated
exceptional picture quality. Everyone
who saw the images from the camera
was blown away by the video, and it
was difficult to believe it was not from
a cabled camera."
A second test took place at the
Rugby Premiership in October, where
BSI added Ethernet camera control
and 4 x 3G signal distribution.
BSI demonstrated the latest version
of the 4K wireless
system to a London
audience at SVG's
"This was the industry's first test
of a 4K low-delay wireless
