Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT) RF Central VClip microLite Transmitter Makes the Connection at SET Congress and Broadcast & Cable International Technology Fair 2013


Self-Contained Integrated Wireless Camera System with V-Mount Provides Complete Plug and Play Solution

 

SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL, AUGUST 20, 2013 — Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the broadcast, sports and entertainment markets, introduces its RF Central VClip microLite Transmitter (VMLT) at the SET Congress and 22nd edition of the Broadcast & Cable Show - International Technology Fair (Booth B15A).

 

The VClip microLite Transmitter (VMLT) is a new addition to award-winning RF Central family of microLite HD products, which include hot shoe camera-top and Anton Bauer clamshell docking options. It is a compact wireless camera video transmitter that mounts on the end of the camera between a plate and any V-mount battery, a widely used mounting option for the industry’s leading professional cameras. The V-mount option is integrated on both sides of the VMLT transmitter, allowing the transmitter to be mounted to the camera, then the battery to be mounted to the transmitter.  As a result, the battery can be used to to power up the transmitter and pass power through to the camera.

 

“We are excited to introduce our RF Central VClip microLite transmitter at this year’s SET Congress and Broadcast & Cable International Technology Fair,” says IMT Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock.  “The VClip microLite transmitter  provides users with additional mounting options for their transmitters. With its compact, clamshell design, the VMLT is ideal for a variety of mobile applications, including live sports events, reality TV productions, ENG/OB broadcast and video assist.”

 

The VMLT comes in licensed and license free bands in both the 2-GHz and 5 GHz frequency versions. The 2-GHz covers from 1.9 to 2.5 GHz and delivers up to 200 mW, while 5 GHz covers 5.5 to 6 GHz with a robust 100 mW RF output. Depending on the mode and frequency, the transmitter has a range of up to 1 mile. The range and power can be increased from 200 mW to 1 Watt with an optional Nucomm Range Booster Amplifier (RBA), also introduced at the Broadcast & Cable show this year.

 

The V-mount option is now available on accompanying RF Central microLite VClip dual diversity receiver and RF Central Direct VU HD handheld receiver/monitor.
