TerraLink IP encoder19 inch rack solution
The TerraLink is a 19 inch 1U high system with two bonded Ethernet connections. The TerraLink is the ideal back up solution for SNG trucks, but also enables any video vehicle with a bonded wireless uplink.
The system supports both DHCP and fixed IP number configuration and has a separate LCD touch screen for management and configuration. The system can also be managed using the LinkMatrix panel and makes it possible to configure maximum bitrate, video resolution and delay. The Terralink IP encoder can be extended with 8 times 3G/4G modems.
- Live uplink from vehicle or location using bonded Internet, or satellite links like BGAN and KA band
- Back up solution for SNG trucks
- Live radio report via the public internet (ISDN not needed any more)
The delay can be set from 0.8 sec up to 60 seconds When the delay is selected this will remain the end-to-end delay during the complete broadcast. This is what is considered fixed delay time. IFB or return audio is also available at less than a second delay.
Store & Forward
The Terralink IP encoder its bundling technology to become a high volume data Store & Forward unit and data bonding unit for Internet access. This means that the system uses its entire available bandwidth to transport any kind of file through its connections to a FTP server.
Hotspot and data bonding
Like most WMT systems also a hotspot is available for Internet access. The hotspot uses the bonded bandwidth of connections together providing enormous upload speeds. The device also supports full data bonding across all connections and is available via the WiFi hotspot or via the Ethernet connection. Both the hotspot and data bonding funtionality work in parallel with the transmission of video, however video is always prioritized so no interruptions due to unexpected data transmissions.
Manage & Control
In combination with the web-based platform the LinkMatrix where it is possible toy control, manage and administer all 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.
