The Growing Need
for Remote Links
Contributing Editor David Kirk
examines the latest developments
in Remote Linking video technology...

M

obile video links have developed
far and fast in recent years with
digital satellite links experiencing everincreasing competition from portable
cellular devices. Satellite remains
the preferred choice for large scale
outside broadcasts from stadiums
and theatres, augmented by directly
accessible fibre interface portals at
relevant locations such as parliament
buildings and law courts. This study
looks at new developments announced
over the past year, many of which will
be demonstrated when the annual
round of broadcast media trade shows
resumes.

ABonAir AB612

ABonAir's AB612 4K wireless link
enables camera teams to transmit
4K HDR 4:2:2 video directly from
cameras to media centres or OB
trucks. The AB612 is a 7-in-1 solution
with integrated CCU/PTZ, Intercom,
IFB, Return Video, Teleprompter and
Tally all on the same RF channel as
the video content without the need of
additional RF channel. The video delay
is only 7 msec with a basic range of 1
Km that can be extended to 10Km and
more. CCU and PTZ ports supports
all brand cameras while embedded
Intercom
allows
communication
between cameraman and director
(connects to 2W, 4W like Clear-Com
or RTS). For extreme coverage of
large area, the Receiver can connect
to RF over Fiber coverage extenders
with roaming algorithms that assure
no pixel is dropped in handoff. The
system's robustness is achieved by a
packet acknowledgement algorithm
identifies data errors and requests retransmit before a frame is presented.

Recent new introductions from
AVIWEST are the Rack video link,
Pro3 5G mobile video transmitter
and MojoPro video encoding and live
streaming software.
The Rack video link is designed to be
deployed in fixed locations, directly
connected to wired IP networks. It can
also be used in vans
or trucks, connected
to a roof-mounted
Quad CellLink which
uses active 3G/4G
multi-antennas and/
or a Ka-band satellite
transmitter. Multiple
operational modes
including live, record
and file forwarding
are supported. The
link incorporates H.265/HEVC and
H.264/AVC encoders and can also
function as an internet data hot spot.
Pro3 5G is designed for direct
camera mounting or for use in a
backpack. It incorporates an H.265/
HEVC encoder delivering HD video at
1 megabit per second with a claimed
0.5 second latency. As an alternative
to a satellite link, it can synchronously
backhaul multiple live feeds. An SIPbased intercom is included.
MojoPro Series software is available
for use on Apple iOS and Google
Android mobile platforms and Apple
MacBook Pro laptops. It allows
live streaming of videos as well as
editing and forwarding of recorded
content via bonded 3G/4G and WiFi
connections. Features include video
and audio editing.
ACCESS MultiRack by Comrex is
a 1U rackmount multi-channel IP
audio codec which can handle up to
five full-duplex IP audio connections

simultaneously. EBU Tech 3326, AES67
and SMPTE 2110-30 compatible, it
is compatible with all Comrex IP
audio codecs as well as the FieldTap
smartphone app. Two identical
streams can be sent through separate
networks (redundancy mode) or
the network bandwidth of multiple
networks can be combined (bonding
mode). Each codec can deliver and
receive four contact closures as well as
sending ancillary data.
Dejero's EnGo 260 is a 5G ready
mobile transmitter weighing 30% less
than its predecessor, with an 85%
larger display screen and now includes
a three-hour internal rechargeable
battery plus global modems. It is built
with aircraft aluminium construction
and
polycarbonate
ABS
shock
absorbers for durability. Also new is a
smaller form-factor CuePoint 50 server
for use in field environments where
it can be easily racked into vehicles
or portable fly away kits. Up to eight
return video and teleprompter feeds
from the broadcast facility can be seen
simultaneously by remote presenters,
camera operators and other field crew
via smartphones, tablets or dedicated
monitors.
Dejero's WayPoint 204 receiver
reconstructs video transported over
multiple IP connections from Dejero
transmitters, decodes HEVC or AVC,
delivers four channels of balanced
foldback, and provides four outputs
supporting SMPTE ST 2110. For
broadcasters needing only one SDI
or MPEG-TS output, Dejero has also
introduced a new smaller WayPoint 50
for use in portable kits or vehicles.
Dejero's new GateWay 211 network
aggregation device provides access to
the public internet, private networks,
and SaaS providers. Recently added
features include increased reliability

on any type of IP connection and faster
file transfer. Applications include
backup connectivity as part of disaster
recovery and business continuity
plans.
LiveU's LU300 HEVC encoder is
claimed to allow content producers
to provide the same video quality
as H.264 while using about half the
bandwidth. In cases where original
H.264 bitrate is maintained, the LU300
HEVC offers improved video quality.
The LU300 comes with a three hour
internal battery. Weighing just over
900 grammes and available in a pouch
or camera-mount configuration, the
encoder bonds up to six connections:
two LTE-Advanced internal modems,
two external modems, WiFi and LAN.
Users can upload stored copies of the
video immediately after live sessions.
The LU300 can also function as a
standalone video encoder or be used
as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot.
Features include an enlarged 2.2 inch
display with and a new jog controller.
Magewell claims its new Pro Convert
for NDI is the first hardware decoder to
support both Newtek's NDI technology
for production-grade media transport
and the Secure Reliable Transport
(SRT) protocol (developed and opensourced by Haivision) for internetdelivered H.264 and H.265 streams.
the Pro Convert for NDI. The company
has also introduced a second new
model, the Pro Convert H.26x to HDMI
4K, which offers the same features as
the Pro Convert for NDI to HDMI 4K for
users who don't require NDI support.
Both models also support additional
streaming protocols including RTSP,
RTMP, UDP, RTP and HTTP streaming.
The converters decode input streams
of up to 4196 x 2160 pixels resolution
and up to 60 frames per second for
output to HDMI 2.0.
Mobile Viewpoint's IQ-xCam is a
combined link and 32 megapixel IP
camera which can capture panoramic
images in 12K. Intended for outside
broadcast applications such as sports,
it is available with one, three or four
4K cameras in a single housing. A
single Ethernet cable supports the
delivery of content and powers the
