Agile AirLinkThe thinnest encoder with up to four camera inputs and data bonding
The Agile AirLink is with its 40 mm the thinnest and most advanced unit available in the market. With it just over 1Kg weight the AirLink is the racecar of the bonding units providing the most reliable an feature reach live transmission device to any broadcaster or journalist.
The Airlink is a wearable ruggedized encoder and transmitter that supports up to four H.265/HEVC video streams and bonds eight combined 3G/4G connections for high-quality live streaming using Mobile Viewpoint's award-winning bonding technology. H.265 live video transmission offers high-quality transport at lower bandwidth, saving money on data cards. It is also possible to add WiFi and Ethernet connections to AirLink to maximize upload capacity.
Agile AirLink 4CK
At NAB we will show the Agile AirLink 4CK, our most powerful portable mobile transmitter. The AirLink 4CK is available with 4 SDI inputs and is capable of delivering Ultra HD video and 4 video streams from the field using bonding technology. It is therefore a broadcast equivalent of a modern OB van. Next to its 4K-abilities, the AirLink 4CK has 4 synchronized inputs for remote production and flexibility, as well as support for both H.265 and H.264 encoding, which ensures total end-to-end compliancy using standard based decoders. With its ultrathin design it will fit easily onto the back of a camera or in a backpack.
Triple C connectivity
The Airlink provides TripleC connectivity, 2 individual video channels and data routing. The unit provides in up to 60 Mbit H.265 encoding, 150 Mbit data bonding, 2 HD video channels, Video return, 8x audio per video channel and last but not least recording up to 1 TByte. The AirLink has 8 built-in modems, WiFi and double Lan access. The built-in WiFi 2.4/5Ghz hotspot provides excellent data access for any device.
The system is small enough to fit between camera body and battery pack, or can be carried in a small backpack. Its aluminium design makes it extremely sturdy and will survive drops of more than 2 meters.
Store & Forward
The AirLink utilizes 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 all modems 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.
AirLink models will support two full intercoms. This hardware upgrade is also available on existing units but requires a hardware update.
Manage & Control
In combination with the web-based platform the LinkMatrix it is possible to control, manage and administer all the 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.
