Matchbox-sized camera transmitter

Cobham By Ian McMurray

Claimed to be the world’s smallest wireless HD COFDM camera transmitter, Cobham is showcasing the new SOLO7 Nano TX transmitter here at IBC. A matchbox-size addition to Cobham’s SOLO range, it is said to provide vital transmission stability for HD images. With latency as low as 15ms,

it enables wireless and wired cameras to perform as a single unit to capture and transmit details at events of any size, therefore enabling viewers to experience news, entertainment and drama from vantage points never before possible, according to the company. An SD version of the Nano TX is available and is on show. Cobham is also highlighting an HD MPEG-4 IP Encoder that is claimed to not only give camera operators the ability to establish

bi-directional connectivity, but also the ability to encode and transmit live broadcast quality HD video from anywhere that has broadband access. The encoder can be connected to virtually any camera and includes balanced audio inputs with integral broadcast-standard IFB talkback.

IBC sees the return of the MediaMesh rapid set-up field newsroom unit that enables users to instantly set up a live broadcast quality transmission

Hand solo: The SOLO7 Nano TX transmitter is ‘world’s smallest’

on the fly. Included in a single, lightweight case is the ability to establish a transmission path for live two-ways; remote camera controls; file transfer

capabilities; and the ability to establish a high-capacity internet connection with access to base newsroom computers

and mobile phones.

MediaMesh can also take advantage of the growing availability of Ka-band satellite uplinks, which means that its 75cm satellite antenna can transmit genuine HD live video, but with a much smaller dish. 1.F41

SmartStart gets iBroadcast off the ground quickly Astec By Ian McMurray

SmartStart, which is being launched at IBC by Astec, is described by the company as a unique solution accelerator designed to get iBroadcast

network monitoring and control off the ground quickly. According to the company, when customers buy an iBroadcast system and want to take ownership for configuring the software and server, they now have the option to purchase services such as system configuration, training,

installation and after sales support as an integrated package for a fixed cost. Customers simply buy the SmartStart package that best meets their needs and Astec will assemble the package accordingly. For broadcasters in a dynamic, fast moving environment where cost is a

critical consideration, Astec suggests that it provides a complete turnkey answer. “SmartStart really challenges the theory that the deployment of a powerful, enterprise-wide, scalable Network Management System requires significant financial outlay from the start,” said Astec technical director,

Chris Barlow. “We aim to show customers who desire a centralised system capable of monitoring and controlling equipment from any vendor, in realtime and across their entire broadcast platform, that such a system is now within the reach of all broadcasters.” 4.A61f
