New Turnkey Solution Features TriCaster Multicamera Production System and VidOvation Wireless Camera Connectivity and Bonded Cellular Uplink
VidOvation has announced the launch of the VidOvation Sports Bundle, a turnkey live mobile-production offering paired with the popular TriCaster® TC1 16-input 4K/60p multicamera production system from NewTek. In the new Sports Bundle offering, VidOvation’s AVIWEST bonded cellular system and VidOlink Reacher wireless camera links integrate with TriCaster TC1, enabling customers to broadcast or stream live sports and events from anywhere while eliminating the clutter of camera cabling.
Within the bundled solution, the VidOlink Reacher wireless video transmitter/receiver connects multiple cameras wirelessly to a TriCaster TC1 system in a control room or production truck, enabling broadcast-grade HDMI and HD-SDI video transmission up to 3,000 feet with no cables, latency, or compression. Then, when operating in a mobile environment, VidOvation’s AVIWEST PRO180-RA bonded cellular and IP link can stream live-event coverage from the TriCaster system to the cloud, Facebook Live, YouTube, UStream, or any master control in the world using a combination of cellular and IP networks.
“We’re delighted to collaborate with VidOvation on its Sports Bundle, which adds a new dimension to NewTek’s end-to-end IP video production workflow,” said Brian Olson, vice president of Product Management for NewTek. “Removing the wires brings a new level of freedom and storytelling to production that is very much in sync with NewTek’s philosophy of user empowerment and cutting-edge technology. With VidOvation, not only are the camera links wireless, but so is the option for final delivery. That opens up even more possibilities for our shared customers.”
