IMT Vislink, a business unit of xG Technology, has introduced MicroLite 2, an HD coded orthogonal frequency domain multiplex (COFDM) wireless video transmitter.
Designed to enhance performance and video quality, the MicroLite 2 can be deployed for broadcast applications where live streaming video is required. It features HD/SD-SDI and HDMI inputs with COFDM transmission in a small chassis while delivering up to 250mW of power.
One key benefit of the MicroLite 2, according to IMT Vislink, is its ability to operate at latency levels “as low as” 70ms, thus making the wireless transmitter suitable for broadcast applications such as live sports broadcasts and video assist applications.
John Payne IV, president of IMT USA, elaborated: “With the MicroLite 2, broadcast professionals are able to transmit HD video within a small form factor while utilising its lightweight design for Steadicam operations, event coverage, confidence monitoring, Web content programming, rental houses and drone use.”
The MicroLite 2 is further equipped with IMT’s COFDM technology and advanced video coding (AVC)/H.264 video compression standard. This integration enables MicroLite 2 to deliver live TV pictures over two miles line-of-sight (LOS).
Users can manage the wireless transmitter through a configured or remote Wi-Fi Web server. Once the encrypted Wi-Fi signal is detected, the user’s Android or iOS device will automatically open a browser window.
A 900MHz transceiver is also available alongside the MicroLite 2 to enable processing of remote commands, including camera control. The transceiver provides bi-direction controls of the transmitter, accessory camera and gimbal control.
