The Airlink family of mobile encoders is Mobile Viewpoint’s flagship product. With the a range of unique features and developments, the Airlink products are the most technological advanced mobile encoders available today.
In use by many global broadcasters to create high quality and low latency video feeds for outside broadcast and live remote production, the Airlink can support up to 4 cameras simultaneously, can transmit 4K, and can include internal 5G modems.
The unit is capable of supporting up to 40MB/sec over bonded networks and can transmit back to a studio or to the cloud using up to and including 8 internal 3G/4G/5G modems, Wi-Fi, LAN and/or satellite and can bond all these connections to make a single high bandwidth connection. By using adaptive bitrate, the Airlinks optimize the video feed based on the available bandwidth ensuring high quality video even in the most demanding of situations.
The lightweight and modest size encoder can fit into a backpack and is battery powered. It supports many of the features expected of a mobile encoder including both H.265 and H.264 encoding, Store & Forward for internal storage, 2-way audio IFB intercom and return video.
The Airlinks also boast a range of additional features including remote RCP control, Tally Control, IP streaming at the same time as video streaming, and the system can be used as a secure Wi-Fi hot spot even while live. It also includes a unique feature called 2Waylink allowing encoder-to-encoder streaming. All encoders in the field can be remotely managed and controlled via Linkmatrix, a free-to-use management platform that operates from a browser on any device. This means non-technical journalists and production people in the field do not need to manage the units directly. Linkmatrix can manage individual encoders, destinations, show proxies,record & go, video return, networks and other set ups and configurations.
