VBrick Builds New Mobile Broadcast System

Apr 08, 2010

IP video technology company VBrick unveiled a fully integrated mobile broadcast system usable by both skilled technicians and and non-technical field journalists. The system contains everything needed to broadcast live stories, using live video contribution backhaul, in a single lightweight and portable back-pack.

News remote trucks cost upwards of $250,000 and up to $3,000 per day to operate. Developed with input from professional TV stations, VBrick has integrated its award-winning H.264 Networked Video Appliance with a bonding router in a rugged, reliable field unit that weighs in under twelve pounds and measures 18.5" x 14.06" x 6.93".

The Mobile Broadcast System is powered by standard broadcast batteries and uses bonded 3G and 4G cellular networks to reliably transmit live video back to the station for immediate broadcast, or to first responder command and control. Using the H.264 video standard, the system delivers the highest quality video and audio, with the lowest latency. Moreover, with its on-board Serial Digital Interface (SDI), or composite, video inputs, it easily integrates with existing professional broadcast news equipment.
