Effective immediately the German system integrator distributes ABonAir’s wireless video link systems in Europe, Middle-East and South-East Asia. ABonAir’s wireless video link systems are used to transmit video content from professional camera and production teams to OB Vans or broadcast stations using microwave technology with the 7 msec latency – the lowest in the market worldwide. As the only solution available on the market ABonAir’s system supports integrated Intercom for communication between the cameraman and the director on the same RF channel as the video content.

Football goals, parachutists’ landings, split-second finishes at the Olympics… sports, news coverage and reality shows are replete with unrepeatable moments that should never be missed. One can’t afford to fail to catch each thrilling second in the broadcast. Further, the production teams must be sure that not even a single pixel is dropped.
