Agile AirLink

The thinnest encoder with 2 camera inputs and databonding

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 our new wearable ruggedized transmitter that encodes video at H.265/HEVC and bonds 8 combined 3G/4G connections for high quality live streaming using Mobile Viewpoint award winning bonding technology. H.265 live video transmission offers the same quality at lower bandwidth consumption, but also saves money at data cards. It is also possible to add Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections to maximize the upload capacity.

 

Triple C connectivity 

The Airlink provides TripleC connectivity, 2 individual video channels and data routing. The capabilities of the unit A class providing up to 50 Mbit H.265 encoding, 150 Mbit databonding, 2 HD video channels, Video return, 4 x  audio per video channel and last but not least recording up to 1 TByte. The AirLink has 8 build in modems, Wifi and double Lan access. The build in WiFi 2.4/5Ghz hotspot provides exellent data access for any device in the environment.

 

Camera mount 

The system is small enough to fit between camera body and battery pack, or can be carried in a small backpack. Its aluminum 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 trough its connections to a FTP server. 

 

Hotspot and Databonding 

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 databonding across all connections and is available via the Wi-Fi hotspot or via the Ethernet connection. Both the hotspot and databonding 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 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.
