Alkmaar, The Netherlands – 4 April 2019 – Mobile Viewpoint, a leader in IP contribution solutions, today announced the launch of its Agile AirLink 4CK solution, the company’s most powerful portable mobile transmitter. The product is the latest addition to Mobile Viewpoint’s AirLink family, and will be showcased at NAB Show 2019.

 

The Agile AirLink 4CK is the broadcast equivalent of a modern outside broadcast (OB) van, delivering live video content in ultra-high definition (UHD) quality. The solution can support four live video streams, and delivers the 4K streams using Mobile Viewpoint’s cellular mobile channel bonding technology. It also boasts an ultra-thin design, which means it can fit onto the back of a camera or in a backpack.

 

With Agile AirLink 4CK, broadcasters and content producers can support multi-camera remote production from a motorcycle or car, delivering a truly mobile, live production set up—ideal for live news broadcasting and live sports events.

 

“We are committed to ongoing research and development at Mobile Viewpoint, and the addition of the Agile AirLink 4CK to our portfolio is a shining example of how we innovate and bring new solutions to market to continually meet our customers’ requirements,” said Michel Bais, CEO of Mobile Viewpoint. “This new solution essentially gives broadcasters and content producers the functionality of a full production system that fits into the palm of a hand. We’re excited to be debuting this new, revolutionary product at NAB, and showing the industry how they can utilise our ground-breaking products to deliver low cost, high quality, live video on the move.”

 

The Agile AirLink 4CK has four synchronised SDI inputs for live streaming, where the bandwidth of each individual input can be controlled. The solution also has return vision and intercom, acting as a true mobile remote production system. Alongside the SDI inputs, users can also record on an internal, solid-state disk. Agile AirLink 4CK supports both H.265 and H.264 encoding, ensuring complete end-to-end compliance using standard-based decoders.

 

Mobile Viewpoint will be exhibiting its new Agile AirLink 4CK solution, along with its full suite of live production solutions at this year’s NAB Show, taking place between 8 – 11 April, on stand C3307.
