The AB425™ wireless broadcast system enables camera teams to transmit broadcast sessions directly from cameras to control centers over the air. The AB425 supports ABonAir’s AB-MultiZone technology that can cover massive areas and even multiple zones with a single receiver, connecting up to 250 MIMO antennas. Deployment can start with as few as 2 antennas and grow as required.
The system can be deployed in multiple topologies for ease of installation: daisy chain, star or any combination of the two, enabling flexible topologies based on venue requirements. The system automatically identifies the topology in place, making setup simple and easy.
ABonAir’s AB425 utilizes full MIMO radio architecture and employs two antennas at the transmitter side and as many as needed in the receiver, allowing simultaneous transmission of two data streams via two radio transceivers. Combining signals into one signal in the receiver produces better coverage and stability. AB425 includes integrated Camera Control Units (CCU or RCP) and Tally Light to perfectly support multi-camera broadcast sessions. The system allows video transmission of up to 2.5 km. AB425 system supports integrated Intercom for communication between the cameraman and the director on the same RF channel as the video content.
AB425 connects to Fiber Coverage Extender (FCE) to provide flexible antenna deployment through fiber infrastructure
