TerraLink-4C Multicam

2U rack encoder H.265 encoder with up to 4 camera inputs

The TerraLink-4C is the first bonded rack transmitter that encodes 4 synced streams at the same time for full remote production. With the TerraLink-4C it is possible to do multi-camera shoots without the need of an OB van on site.

The TerraLink-4C supports both H.265 and H.264 encoding to insure an end to end compliancy using standard based decoders or IRD’s. Besides IFB the TerraLink-4C provides a return data signal to do remotely camera control for white balance and color correction. The TerraLink-4C offers, beside the live option, also a recording feature which records the video on the internal solid state disk. The recordings are transferred using the store and forward mode providing the highest quality possible.

 

Manage & Control

In combination with the web-based platform the LinkMatrix it is possible to control, manage and administer all your WMT devices and connections. The LinkMatrix is multi-destination and makes it possible to publish the same feed on many platforms including Social Media and private CDN’s.

 

Decoding 

For the Multicam productfleet a special version of a decoder has been developed. It has 4 audio inputs and outputs for intercom to overcome separate de-embedding. This decoder has 4 times HD-SDI outputs with 4 embedded audio channels.
