Mobile Viewpoint, market leader in wireless 3G/4G communications, announces the introduction of the new WMT EXPERT 4K and EXPERT 4CAM. The WMT EXPERT 4K transmits up to 60 frames HEVC encoded video using 8 modems. Next to 4K the unit supports the standard features like store and forward, data bonding and recording. The EXPERT 4K is available right now and as an upgrade of an existing unit.
The WMT EXPERT 4CAM is the first bonded transmitter that encodes 4 individual streams at the same time and unleashes the long time promised full remote production. With the Expert 4CAM it is possible to do multi camera shoots without the need of an OB van on-site. The EXPERT 4CAM supports both H.265 and H.264 encoding to ensure an end-to-end compliancy using standard based decoders or IRD’s. The 4CAM supports support 2 IFB channels for the presenter and cameraman. Next to IFB the Expert also provides a return data signal to do remotely camera control for white balance and color correction. Next to live the WMT can also record all streams and send them over at a later stage in store and forward mode providing the highest quality possible. The unit supports transmission via Ka-sat and has a default storage capacity of 120 GB which can be upgraded to one TB. To meet everybody’s requirements, the EXPERT 4CAM is available as a 1U 19-inch rack mount or as a backpack solution. Other available accessories are a high gain dome antenna, hot swap battery plates and antenna extenders for car roof top mounting.
Quote Michel Bais, Managing Director Of Mobile Viewpoint
Mobile Viewpoint Managing Director Michel Bais said, “many of our customers requested the possibility to do 4K and connect multiple camera’s without the need of a switching panel and technician on-site. With the capabilities of our new HEVC encoding hardware and the availability of 4G we are able to provide an excellent quality 4K and the encoding and transmission of multiple video feeds without the need of separate transmitters. We think that especially with the introduction of the EXPERT 4CAM the advent of remote production really comes true and will bring the long awaited cost savings in outside production.”
