About the AB4000

The AB4000™ is a lightweight and feature-rich broadcast-quality system (4Kp60 video through 12G SDI or HDMI interfaces) with extremely high picture quality and a robust link, based on the ABonAir unique Bi-Directional® link empowered by its ReTransmit® algorithm, which was designed to overcome wireless interference by acknowledging each and every pixel sent over the air and verifying its content before decoding, using the wireless optimized H.265 CODEC.

The AB4000 units are equipped with LBUS and FS-CAN for Lens Control, thus, allowing focus pullers to control Lens motors from far, combined with wireless video in the same unit. This is a single-box solution for both video monitoring and lens control. All this is in parallel to other Receivers that can be used by the director, the light control and others in the production team. The AB4000 includes an integrated Intercom and Tally light to support multi-camera productions.

On top of these, AB4000 supports shading/painting (CCU/RCP) & PTZ camera control and is compatible with cameras from manufacturers such as ARRI, Blackmagic Design, Hitachi, Ikegami, Sony and Panasonic.

About the AB612

The ABonAir AB612™ is a feature-rich 4K wireless video link for professional broadcasters.  It relies on a 4K lightweight wireless Transmitter and a 4K 1U Receiver. Thus, allowing the camera teams to wirelessly transmit 4K video directly from the camera to the media centers or OB trucks.

The AB612 utilizes a wireless-optimized H.265 CODEC that ensures broadcast-level picture quality. In addition, ABonAir’s bi-directional radio technology between Transmitter and Receiver allows steady, robust and highly accurate video links as each and every pixel is acknowledged by the Receiver. Additional features such as full HDR support, Tally light, CCU and PTZ, make the AB612 system the best solution for any professional 4K broadcast.

The AB612 is perfect for sports, large and medium to small sizes areas (open and closed), studios such as reality show productions, news (OB trucks, DSNG and DENG vans), live events (stadium concerts and street events) as well as religion (house of worship live broadcasts).
