Vislink is exhibiting at Stand 4C3-01

At Broadcast Asia 2012 Vislink is featuring the new brand "Live Gear" and the broadcast-specific version of its Advent Mantis “MSAT” Man Portable Data Terminal.

“LiveGear”, includes a family of IP-centric products specially designed for new media professionals working in urban areas or remote locations to get first-on-scene video back to a studio or web streaming site.

Vislink’s marketing operations manager, Mark Anderson, said, “LiveGear delivers the power of a news truck in a backpack, which not only lightens the load for newsgathering teams, it provides a cost-effective alternative to the typically costly requirements of OB deployment.”

LiveGear technology is cellular-based and provides ground-breaking performance and efficiency for new media broadcasters who are on the move or on location. By utilizing Vislink’s leading H.264 adaptive bit-rate encoding technology, LiveGear products offer superior, robust and consistent video transmission by combining multiple 3G/4G LTE cellular channels.


Included in the LiveGear range are AirCam, a combination of a COFDM microwave and 3G/4G LTE camera-back transmitter; AirStream, a portable cellular ING transmission system; and the LGR-1000 LiveGear internet newsgathering receiver and playout device.

With the addition of LiveGear, Vislink is the first company to offer a comprehensive suite of licensed and unlicensed remote video solutions that include broadband cellular, WiFi, terrestrial, and satellite microwave technologies.

“MSAT” Portable Data Terminal
The broadcast-specific version of VISLINK's Advent Mantis “MSAT” Man Portable Data Terminal is a highly portable tri-band satellite antenna system specifically designed for ease of use and rapid deployment.

At only 12.5 kilos, the Advent MSAT can easily be carried by one person. The system’s fully integrated design means that set up takes only minutes from arrival to satellite acquisition, making it ideal for rapid deployment field applications when speed is of the essence.


The antenna comes with a 65cm reflector as standard and can be configured to be used in Ka, Ku and X bands. Power is supplied either from mains outlets or 12-36VDC supplies.  As well as having interchangeable modem options, the system can also be specified to have an Advent DVE encoder built in.

Vislink’s marketing operations manager, Mark Anderson, said, “The ultra-lightweight Advent MSAT is a major new antenna design and a compelling addition to the market with major advantages for first-on-scene news reporting.”
