Nucomm NewsHub offers cellular diversity receiving for HD, SD ENG
Nucomm introduced the NewsHub cellular diversity receive system at NAB2007.
The system offers stations a way to implement a wide-area urban cellular diversity receive network. A single NewsHub features four ASI inputs with loop-through packet switching to provide seamless switching of up to four cellular receive sites. Coverage areas can be expanded as required by cascading two or more NewsHub systems.
Featuring a switchable HD/SD MPEG-2 decoder as well as NTSC/PAL capability, the system offers low signal acquisition time, making it well suited for fast-moving news operations.
The NewsHub provides genlock in all analog format inputs, and provides two SDI/ASI outputs. It is designed to be easy to control, with USB/Ethernet and RS-232 remote control. It also supports a downconverted SD monitor with status overlay for monitoring.
