Lightweight Portable Device Boosts Remote Video Transmission Capabilities
Broadcasters in large cities and studios have access to reliable high-speed internet and Wi-Fi for live streaming. However, when streaming from remote locations signal quality and availability become critical problems that can result in reduced bandwidth and unreliable connectivity.
As such, remote wireless video streaming via 4G/5G has become an attractive option for people who need to broadcast live from areas without a reliable internet connection. This essentially allows anyone to send real-time, high-quality visual content from virtually anywhere.
The customer in this case required a reliable
DMS partner to provide a customized integrated solution that included wireless
connectivity, a touch LCD, CPU board, I/O board, RF board, and a customized
design. To ensure live image capture while driving, the device needed to support
vehicle mounting and connection to rooftop antennas for stronger cellular
network reception. For more mobile applications, it also needed to be compact
enough to be mounted directly onto a camera or fit into a backpack while still
allowing easy access to a touch screen so that the operator can control the
system and monitor the video stream.
