After the recent announcement of the Bolt 4K MAX, Teradek’s most advanced 4K HDR wireless video system to date, the company has just introduced Orbit – the next generation zero-delay 4K HDR wireless broadcast solution.
In essence, the Orbit line of products utilizes Teradek’s patented Joint Source Channel Coding (JSCC) combined with both MIMO and OFDM, to encode and transmit video over the 4.9 – 5.8 GHz bands. The JSCC approach enables full usage of 40MHz / 20MHz channel capacity.
Unlike other conventional broabast wireless systems, Orbit transfers high-resolution images with visually lossless quality while offering far better handling of channel interference compared to traditional discrete H.264/ HEVC encoding and OFDM / MIMO transmission methods. This results in an extremely robust wireless link that transmits pristine 10-bit 4:2:2 4K video with less than 1ms latency.
Orbit is specially designed to make broadcast workflows more efficient. Integrated Tally and IFB streamlines communication between camera operators, crew members, and video subjects in live environments, while its 7-pin LEMO connector offers RS-232 and RS-422 connectivity for remote control of PTZ and ENG cameras.
Orbit can transmit common video frame rates and resolutions, from NTSC / PAL to 4Kp60. The system can broadcast to multiple to receivers simultaneously, with each capable of outputting independent resolutions and frame rates as desired.
With free iOS and Android application, users can rapidly configure the system’s settings, including manual selection of an operating channel for frequency coordination applications.
