AIR Series | Advanced Ultra-Compact Mobile Transmitter

Ultra-portable HEVC and H.264 mobile transmitter range revolutionizing live video remote production and contribution over bonded IP networks.

 

The AIR Series is a range of mobile H.265/HEVC (and H.264/AVC) encoder & transmitter that enables video professional to broadcast news, sports or field events from any location around the world, as well as web streaming to social networks. Designed in a very compact ruggedized enclosure along with a long life internal rechargeable battery and a large set of audio and video interfaces, the AIR Series supports the best state-of-the-art H.265/HEVC encoder offering premium HD and SD video quality with less data use, and low latency (down to 0.5 sec).

The AIR series covers a large set of use cases, including live broadcast with (or without) simultaneous record. It also supports video recording only on the embedded SD card. The record file can be transferred after the clip is fully recorded but also during the record if the studio needs near real time delivery. During Live sessions, the AIR Series also enables the field crews to watch on-air program or teleprompting information coming from the Studio, with sub-second latency, on external display. All these operations are easy to trigger locally from the ergonomic display or remotely from the Studio.

Leveraging Emmy® award winning AVIWEST’s SST protocol, AIR Series ensures the delivery of live video even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions by aggregating simultaneously multiple network connections dynamically adapting the video bitrate, protecting stream content and supporting retransmission of lost data.
