Fiberglass Systems Solution for Broadcasting in vast areas
The importance of wireless cameras for broadcasting and events is perpetually increasing. The requirements regarding efficiency of wireless camera systems that cover vast areas are on the rise, especially for live sports events. Patrick Nussbaum, CEO HDwireless, comments: „When planning complex wireless transmissions we do not only use radio links. On the one hand we calculate optimal sites for RF-antennas, and on the other we connect them by fiberglass cross-links, depending on the requirements. For implementation we depend on system components like RFiber”. Patrick Nussbaum knows: in the long run a stable video signal at the final transmission chain is the only thing that counts. With our in-house HDwireless developed product RFiber, for example, high or intermediate frequency signal can be transported without loss for several kilometers before they will be demodulated by receivers and forwarded to decoders. With this technology signals from various antenna sites can be linked via fiberglass inside one mobile production unit – such as the HDwireless RF1 or a mobile editing. The software „HDwireless System Overview“ offers effective observation of long or linked wireless transmissions. This way each RFiber-unit on site can be regulated transparently and intuitively. Sebastien Coat, HDwireless software developer, explains: „We define the functional range of all our hard- and software based on longstanding and broad experience with the projects. This software enables the operator not only to control the RFiber units but also the demodulators and decoders within the fiberglass network”. Within the dry-hire rental HDwireless offers all components for high frequency wireless and fiberglass transmission. All our clientele, wanting to rent equipment may choose from fiberglass systems with Lemo connection, or, alternately single fiberglass for all connectors. RFiber comes in robust in- and outdoor units, and was developed for professional broadcasting.
