LightPointe unveils FlightStrata HD optical wireless link
LightPointe has introduced the FlightStrata HD, a high-bandwidth, easily deployable wireless solution for delivery of real-time, remote HDTV-quality broadcast video and audio feeds.
The license-free FlightStrata HD is designed specifically to support bandwidth-intensive HDTV point-to-point wireless communications.
The FlightStrata HD transmits uncompressed HDTV signals wirelessly at full-duplex throughput of 1.485Gb/s, making it well-suited for remote cameras covering news, sporting events and live entertainment. An optical wireless product based on free space optics (FSO) technology, the FlightStrata HD uses beams of light for sending high quality, real-time HDTV video streams at recommended distances up to 2500ft between a remote HDTV camera and production studio facility or remote satellite truck.
LightPointe's FlightStrata HD is fully HD-SDI compatible. The system also incorporates multi-beam transmission, auto tracking, Optical Beam Shaping (OBS) and Automatic Power Control (APC).
