Vislink: Get the first look at LiveLink at IBC 2023
Vislink's most compact and advanced bonded cellular transmitter will be debuting at IBC, live demonstrations will be given in Hall 1, Stand 1.C51.
Mickey Miller, Vislink CEO says:
LiveLink will be a game-changer in live remote production spaces—from news and sports to crucial live events. It is Vislink’s most compact, technologically advanced bonded cellular transmitter yet.
LiveLink’s design offers high-quality 4:2:2, 10-bit HEVC video encoding up to 4K resolutions, and 10-bit Luma Optimization to meet the demands of HDR.
Broadcasters can leverage high-quality, low-latency video transmissions—made possible by FPGA technology and HEVC encoding—to enable dynamic, highly-fluid two-way interviews. LiveLink offers remarkable bonding connectivity, allowing for up to 4x diverse public cellular connections, WiFi, and public internet.
Those in heavily populated environments can still enjoy high data rate connectivity through integration with Vislink’s private 5G connectivity solution. With bonded cellular, private 5G and Starlink satellite support, LiveLink also provides seamless roaming across private and public 5G networks.
LiveLink's Unique Features
- Ultra-portable WMT camera transmitter
- Uniquely scalable from News to Tier 1 sports applications
- Eliminate contended transmission environments with Private 5G transmission
- Deploy end-2-end 5G systems
Field camera operators can stay connected to colleagues in the broadcast center through a direct audio link provided by LiveLink’s integrated camera control feature. It also includes multi-camera/transmitter synchronization, allowing users to seamlessly switch between live feeds, viewing the action from different angles.
Its modest size allows operators to transport the device, place it alongside mirrorless camera systems, or mount it directly on ENG camera devices without disturbing the camera’s balance or operation. Offering extended connectivity options, leveraging an SFP slot that delivers flexibility for the amount of video inputs, HDMI support and SDI video outputs. With two Ethernet connections, users can employ the unit as a data hotspot for remote control and Internet access applications.
With LinkMatrix, Vislink’s free-to-use management platform that operates from a browser on any device, LiveLink field devices can be remotely managed and controlled, further enhancing broadcast production workflows.
