BMS @ NAB 2012

BMS is exhibiting at Booth ' C9545

Now celebrating its 30th year in business, Broadcast Microwave Services, Inc. is a worldwide leader in compact digital SD and HD microwave video products. In use around the globe by news crews, sporting arenas, and television production houses, BMS products excel in critical live broadcast events and video assist applications. This year BMS will feature our newest development: MPEG-4/H.264 based transmitters, receivers, and stand-alone encoder/decoder solutions.

Heli-Coder 4
The HC4 is a single box solution containing everything needed for high-quality, reliable transmission. This includes the video encoder, modulator, up-converter and high-power amplifier.

Standard COFDM modulation offers excellent performance in urban and Non-Line of Sight environments with significant multipath. Other optional high order modulation techniques are available through software changes, making this transmitter well suited to changing operational needs.

Additionally, this unit provides an integrated GPS data interface that reduces the components needed to integrate the HC4 into tracking systems. The HC4 provides everything required to achieve 10 W output power in an ultra-compact case. The remote control panel allows the electronics to be mounted within the avionics bay with full control from the flight deck.

The HC4 is also Geo-Point capable. Geo-Point uses metadata from the video source and displays the bearing and distance to the location shown on the screen, all in real time! (Geo-Point™ requires compatible receiver.) BMS offers a wide selection of airborne products to meet the video and data requirements of today’s real world applications. Call to discuss your specific needs.


The NT58253SDHD is one of BMS’ newer transmitter products and has been garnering much attention from TV and camera production people since the start of the year. Clearly, demand is growing for one of the lightest, lowest latency HD camera back transmitters available in the US today. Here’s why:
•    Small size
•   Lowest power consumption: 40% better than competition
•    Less than 40 msec end-to-end signal delay
•    5.8 GHz license free operation
•   H.264 upgrade option

The NT2423 SD-HD is the no-compromise HD wireless transmitter from BMS. The ground breaking NT2423 SD-HD affords cutting edge technology supporting many revolutionary features to provide the closest alternative to a wired HD camera that you will find in a really small housing.

• Low Power Consumption
• One-Frame Latency (End-to-End)
• COFDM 2k Transmission• 200 mW
• 8 MHz Bandwidth
• Rugged and Lightweight Design
• Camera Dockable with Brackets
• Anton Bauer- / IDX- / PAG-Battery Mount
• Frequency Range 1.95 to 7.4 GHz (Subdivided)


Come see for yourself at our booth C9545 and witness these products in action. A BMS technical rep will be more than happy to answer your questions and demo the transmitter for you.
