The Quicklink Skype TX is a compact touchscreen 1U rack mount or desktop unit that enables professional reception or transmission of Skype calls through the SDI/ HDMI interface. The Quicklink Skype TX has the added advantage of being ultra-quiet, thus ensuring that news broadcasts can be transmitted without any noise interference. Fox News used the Quicklink Skype TX to transmit high quality 2 way video and audio from a remote office location back to a Quicklink Skype TX in the TV station.

Another new feature for the Quicklink Skype TX solution is a network enhancer called Bondio™. This revolutionary software is available free of charge for a limited period with the purchase of the Quicklink Skype TX. Bondio™ improves the contributor’s bandwidth by bonding a combination of internet connections together to create one super connection. This allows broadcasters to use the solution even when they have lossy networks in order to produce a single stable, high quality transmission.
