When conducting live interviews, today’s journalists have to deliver amazing video quality. Yet, given the unpredictability of video delivery over unmanaged networks, this can be a challenge. In many cases, live reporting is done outside the studio. When on the go, journalists need video delivery solutions that are compact and portable, ensuring they can quickly get to where they need to be and broadcast live instantly.
The PRO3 Series is the fourth generation of the AVIWEST’s portable video uplink system. By integrating a best-in-class H.265/HEVC hardware encoder into a compact design, it revolutionizes live video remote production. PRO380 enables broadcasters and video producers to seamlessly stream live interviews and events, and store and forward recorded content even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions.
Part of what differentiates the PRO3 Series from other video uplink systems is its compact and robust design, and its unique specifications.
