Vislink redefines news gathering
April 8, 2013 – NAB Convention, Las Vegas, Nevada: VISLINK today announced the introduction of the NewStream multi-mode mobile transmission system. The NewStream is a state-of-the-art vehicle system combining Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Cellular News Gathering (CNG), and Satellite News Gathering (SNG) in one compact rack mounted unit. This new multi-mode system is the most comprehensive mobile broadcast system available today. The NewStream combines both licensed and unlicensed RF technologies together within a user-friendly platform. As the newest addition to VISLINK’s LiveGear brand the NewStream provides multiple ways to transmit up to two simultaneous live videos; anytime, anywhere.
The NewStream was designed with today’s broadcaster in mind. This new platform is cost effective, space saving and operator friendly delivering power packed performance in a 2 rack unit design. The NewStream supports a wide range of frequency bands including 2-2.5, 4.5-5.0, 6.4-7.1, 12.7-13.25, plus a dual band 2/7 GHz option, and with its ergonomic programmable multi-function OLED push button switches, the system minimizes front panel congestion while automatically configuring based on the user’s mode of operation. The addition of high RF digital power amplifiers provides exceptional operating performance, especially relating to linearity and MER performance. Cellular wireless technologies are supported through a six channel bonded 3G, 4G, LTE outdoor unit that can be mounted on a vehicle’s roof-top or mast. For satellite news gathering applications there is full control of an integrated satellite upconverter with L-band output offering DVB-S and DVB-S2 modulation. Based on a future-proof platform, the NewStream is the industry’s most versatile implementation of emerging communications technologies.
“VISLINK designs solutions with our customers current and future needs in mind,” stated Mike Payne, CEO of VISLINK. “The NewStream is an unprecedented platform combining cellular, microwave and satellite transmission into the ultimate news gathering platform. This multi-mode system is just one of the new solutions in the VISLINK V-net portfolio which takes video contribution and distribution to a whole new level.”
