Rennes, France, September 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- AVIWEST, the technology leader in digital mobile newsgathering, has chosen IBC2012 for the European launch of the world's most advanced pocket-sized 3G/4G-LTE live video uplink system. Introduced to American broadcasters at the April 2012 NAB Convention and now available for use with European networks, the DMNG PRO series is designed for worldwide professional use in broadcast newsgathering.
"The DMNG PRO builds on AVIWEST’s proven expertise in video and transmission technologies," comments Charles van Gorkum, Vice President, Sales. "Journalists do not want to carry 5 kilogramme backpacks. They appreciate a kit which is compact, quick-starting, reliable and easy to use. The IBIS DMNG, which we introduced in 2008, was the first cellular newsgathering encoder based on dedicated hardware at a time when competitors were basing their products on slow, bulky and complicated PC-based infrastructure. The IBIS DMNG is now an industry standard used on a daily basis by international, national and local TV channels and news agencies. The custom hardware in the DMNG PRO series allows us to deliver the same fast starting speed, intuitive interface and highly compact structure as the IBIS DMNG while leveraging more network interfaces with proprietary antenna technology and dual-video encoder capabilities.
The DMNG PRO has been designed with ease-of-use in mind. Its user-friendly intuitive interface allows any user to broadcast live in three simple clicks from either the embedded touchscreen or from the AVIWEST smartphone application. Ultra-compact, robust and highly portable, the DMNG PRO can be directly attached to a camera using a standard V-mount or Gold-Mount plate. It allows journalists to be fully news-ready by combining a variety of network interfaces. These include eight embedded 3G/HSPA+/4G-LTE modems with a high-efficiency custom antenna array providing faster network acquisition and improved resilience; a built-in wi-fi modem; two auxiliary USB ports and dual Gigabit Ethernet for BGAN or Ka-Sat.
Glass-to-glass latency, depending on the network, can be as low as one second, allowing seamless on-air interviews.
The AVIWEST DMNG PRO is available now.
