4G Broadcast

4G Mobile Transmitter – transforming broadcasting

Weighing 8kg, can be a single ENG use as here, or connected to OB/Vision mixer for live uplink.

As used by the BBC for the Olympic Torch relay coverage and countless broadcasters around the world. We’ve been one of the pioneers in this for many years. 

We’ve used them outdoors all over the UK and Europe and the middle east, inside stadiums and concert halls, even in Leicester Cathedral when Channel 4 covered King Richard III: the Reburial. We live streamed it for 3 days.

We’re using this for both video and audio feeds and recently we used it for BBC Radio 5live Sports Extra to broadcast an international event from inside Wembley Arena  – the system performed flawlessly for 2 x 2 hour shows.  We also have clients who use the systems for live streams inside banks in the center of London. Sky News have decoders in their MCR as do BBC News and BBC Sport, and we have live streamed events to the BBC website using this directly instead of using a satellite uplink.

We’ve used them for conferences, press launches, news, exhibitions, music gigs and of course sports events!

Expert4C-WorkflowWe offer packages from full ‘end-to-end’ as a service with operators and streaming, to simple daily dry hire and sales. Our clients including production companies, specialist web enterprises who have been using this system to stream from conferences without the need for expensive ISDN or landline installations, and for radio broadcasts too.

Ideal for TV and streaming production companies, event organisers, news broadcasters, press conferences, corporate events and more needing live or store & forward broadcasting.

(e.g. Vodafone, Orange, EE, 3 etc)  into one signal for up-linking video and high volume files. Typical signal capacity is between 800 – 12000 kbps (12Mb) for live High Definition quality images.

The system constantly selects the best quality signal from each of the 8 network cards to ensure the best continuous uplink signal.
