Self-Contained Integrated Wireless Camera System
With V-Mount Provides Complete Plug And Play Solution
AMSTERDAM, SEPTEMBER 14, 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, presents its RF Central VClip microLite Transmitter (VMLT)at IBC 2013 (Hall 1, Stand D.40).
The VMLT is a new addition to the award-winning RF Central family of microLite HD products, which includes hot shoe camera-top and Anton/Bauer camera-back 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 is used to power up the transmitter and pass power through to the camera.
“The RF Central VClip microLite transmitter provides users with additional mounting options for their transmitters and we are excited to be able to show it to those in attendance at IBC 2013,” says IMT Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “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 2GHz and 5GHz frequency versions. The 2GHz covers from 1.9- to 2.5GHz and delivers up to 200 mW, while 5GHz covers 5.5- to 6GHz with a robust 100 mW RF output. Depending on the mode and frequency, the transmitter has a range of up to one 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 IBC 2013.
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.
