New Uplink System Revolutionizes Live Video Remote Production — A key highlight at IBC2017 will be the transition to the HEVC video compression standard. AVIWEST’s live IP video solutions support HEVC, allowing broadcasters to deliver superior video quality at lower bit rates.
AVIWEST will showcase AIR300 and AIR320, the two first products in its AIR series of high-end, powerful, and ultra-lightweight video uplink systems. Integrating best-in-class H.265/HEVC hardware encoders, the series enables flawless HD and SD encoding and exceptional video quality delivery.
Featuring up to four cellular connections, an internal Wi-Fi modem, internal battery, and AVIWEST’s SafeStreams technology, the AIR series allows broadcasters to seamlessly stream live videos and store and forward recorded content even during unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions.
This new transmitter series is the perfect tool for on-the-go video professionals who need lightweight, portable, and versatile video solutions.

The compact, half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates.
The HE4000 will be demonstrated with the latest version of the StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform, offering integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.
