Brazilian systems integrator Foccus Digital and Soliton have formed a partnership to distribute the Smart-telecaster Zao, the world’s first mobile H.265 hardware encoder in Brazil. Zao is ideally designed for mobile streaming, live sports and live journalism applications, connecting up to 6 mobile modems for transmission of high quality real-time video streaming over networks of IP-based transmission such as 3G, 4G / LTE / WiFi and BGAN. Key features include a super lightweight design, low power consumption, intuitive three button operation and remote configuration and monitoring from a smartphone (iOS/Android) mobile app. Zao is exceptionally efficient and robust, ensuring transmission even in localities with extremely limited bandwidth. The encoder can be attached to any camera and is also offered in a backpack solution specially designed for the equipment.
The Smart-telecaster Zao has been extensively tested in Brazil and utilized in live broadcast with exceptional results. Preliminary tests were recently conducted at the principal sites of the RIO 2016 Olympic games, including Maracanã and Engenhão Stadiums, Olympic Park, Marina da Gloria, Christ the Redeemer, and the Sambodromo. Zao transmitted flawlessly in full HD in all localities utilizing a variety of modems and the 3G/4G chips of the major Brazilian mobile operators. The testing proved the inclusion of the H.265/HEVC video compression standard and Soliton’s proprietary RASCOW™ transmission control technology ensures smooth, low-latency video/audio transmission, even in the most challenging locations. Solition Smart-telecaster Zao units are available in Brazil through Foccus Digital. Contact Foccus to schedule a demonstration, and experience the robustness of the Soliton Smart-telecaster Zao.
