Rack mount H.264 contribution encoder with hybrid transmission capacity over Ka satellite and cellular networks. Especially designed for installation in news gathering vehicles or remote live video production facilities.
The RACK1 Series is a range of advanced hybrid contribution video encoders designed for installation in news gathering vehicles or remote live video production facilities. Housed in a compact 1RU chassis, it embeds 1 x Wi-Fi modem and up to 8 x 3G/4G modems with SMA antenna ports on its rear panel.
The SMA antenna ports connect with two AVIWEST QUAD Antenna wide band external cellular antenna arrays that can be easily mounted on the roof of any vehicle.
The AVIWEST QUAD Antenna are designed to strengthen signal delivery in critical environments such as live reporting from crowded areas. Thanks to AVIWEST SST (Safe Streams Transport) protocol and its intelligent bonding stack, the RACK1 Series expands the capabilities of news gathering vehicles by taking advantage of both satellite and cellular networks in various scenarios:
Live and Files Forward over Satellite & Cellular Networks
The RACK1 Series can stream over Ka band and use cellular links as back-up or complementary connection. It enables streaming a live over cellular connection while driving to a location, before switching to Ka band once the satellite dish is pointed. This bonding mode also ensures the transmission reliability when the performance of the Ka band decreases, particularly due to bad weather conditions or of drop in bandwidth cause by a congested network.
Live and Files Forward over Satellite
The RACK1 Series is compatible with major portable satellite uplink solutions such as Inmarsat BGAN, GX or Ka band satellite modems. It can also feed any kind of satellite modulator thanks to its MPEG-2 TS ASI output.
Live and Files Forward over Bonded Cellular Networks
Combined with two QUAD Antenna wide band cellular antenna arrays, the RACK1 Series can stream live footage over bonded cellular networks even in critical conditions such as from crowded areas.
