SIS LIVE + Broadcast Sports—Capturing Content From Mobile Sources (Satellite Broadcasting™—VSAT)

[SatNews] Satellite product design specialist SIS LIVE and wireless technologies expert Broadcast Sports, Inc. (BSI) have collaborated on SIS LIVE’s latest cutting edge VSAT product, ManPak®100.

SIS LIVE has developed an innovative tripod style satellite terminal, integrated with BSI’s market leading Real Freedom™ COFDM platform. This system allows ManPak®100 units to capture live video feeds from a camera transmitter from a radius of approximately 1.5km via a small COFDM transmitter mounted on a camera and integral receiver located within the ManPak®100 terminal. This source can then be transmitted via a Ka- or Ku-band satellite of choice back to base. The integrated COFDM receiver means that no cabling is required to connect to a camera, giving users the Real Freedom™ to capture images from mobile sources which could include everything from HD broadcast cameras, miniature body-worn cameras, to airborne drone EO/IR cameras. The integration of these two cutting-edge technologies provides all the necessary connectivity in one ruggedized, waterproof package, with no decoding / recoding required from camera through to destination.

The ManPak®100 leads the way in the next generation of satellite terminals. This m and 1.2m antenna comes with a revolutionary control case which makes the acquisition of satellites simple, even for non-technical users, through the use of two simple wheels controlling the azimuth and elevation, and an award winning graphical user interface (GUI). ManPak®100 also features a connection and integrated housing for a high-grade encryption device.  ManPak®100 is low-cost, incredibly quick to deploy, and can be on a satellite in less than 5 minutes.

The BSI Real Freedom™ Camera Back Transmitter is a compact, wireless transmitter equipped with a full range of customizable settings that can be easily adjusted through a user-friendly interface. With a first in class, 3G 1080p encoder, the transmitter is capable of full 10-bit, 4:2:2 sampling throughout all resolutions and frame rates. It consistently delivers low latency, high quality images and mounts easily on the back of most hand-held broadcast or prosumer cameras. The Real Freedom™ Receiver’s intelligent design makes system configuration and overall operation fast and easy. The receiver's front panel 5-inch color monitor can display all formats of received video and is equipped with an intuitive, user-friendly interface.

ManPak®100 is lightweight, IATA compliant and packs into two robust cases which lock together, making one hostess style trolley case for easy transportation. The completely waterproof and rugged design allows for operation in even the most challenging of conditions, be that in a war zone for military communications; capturing breaking news stories from the front line; or distributing live sensor feeds from remote locations on international borders.
