AB407™ - Full MIMO Professional Wireless HD Camera Link

ABonAir AB407 wireless broadcast systems enable camera teams to transmit broadcast sessions directly from cameras to media centers or director-monitors over the air, without the restrictions of cable connections. ABonAir wireless broadcast transmitters are used in outdoor sports, news coverage (ENG), reality shows, entertainment, live events and video assist.

ABonAir's AB407 utilizes full MIMO radio architecture and employs multiple antennas at both the transmitter and receiver to enhance transmission performance and ensure improved coverage even in the most radio-challenging environments.

AB407 MIMO (Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output) radio and modem architecture allows simultaneous transmission of two data streams via two radio transceivers. Combining signals into one in the receiver produces better coverage and link stability.

Built on a bi-directional data channel between camera transmitters and receivers, ABonAir's AB407 acknowledges correct acceptance of each packet of pixels and enables continuous, stable content transmission. Its proprietary over-the-air protocol streams HD video of the highest quality to meet the most demanding broadcast standards.  
AB407 technology provides exceptionally robust and reliable wireless video links at unmatched prices.

Portable Receiver for maximum flexibility 
For fixed setups or a temporary production

Until a few years ago, only large networks could use wireless equipment because it required purchasing expensive frequency licenses from the regulator. In recent years, however, governments and regulators around the world provide unlicensed frequencies for public use for any purpose – including video transmission – allowing even smaller productions to use wireless links easily and free of charge. To answer this demand, manufacturers started to develop unlicensed solutions. Unlicensed systems' volume grew and drove cost down, motivating big networks to also use them even though they own frequencies.

MIMO Multiple Input Multiple Output antenna array

MIMO is a method for multiplying the capacity of a radio link using multiple transmit and receive antennas to take advantage of multipath propagation. MIMO has become an essential element of wireless communication product especially those using OFDM

MIMO specifically refers to a practical technique for sending and receiving more than one data signal simultaneously over the same radio channel by exploiting multipath propagation.

Wide coverage distance

Wide coverage distance up to 1km per zone

Optimization of wireless and video requirements and careful radio design combined with advance MIMO technology enable ABonAir engineers to extent the system range up to full 1 Km / 0.6 miles in clear line of site. In drone application where clear line is perfect this range can be extended to 2Km / 1.2 miles.

Unlicensed Frequency no need to use regulated frequency and pay for frequency

Until a few years ago, only large networks could use wireless equipment because it required purchasing expensive frequency licenses from the regulator. In recent years, however, governments and regulators around the world provide unlicensed frequencies for public use for any purpose – including video transmission – allowing even smaller productions to use wireless links easily and free of charge. To answer this demand, manufacturers started to develop unlicensed solutions. Unlicensed systems' volume grew and drove cost down, motivating big networks to also use them even though they own frequencies. 

Bi-Directional radio with per pixel acknowledgement

In uni-directional links, the transmitter sends video content to the receiver without receiving any feedback. In bi-directional links, both transmitter and receiver can send and receive data and control information: a packet acknowledgment mechanism identifies errors and quickly fixes them (by re-transmitting the corrupted data), before the frame is presented. This enables bi-directional solutions to assure that all the data is well received without errors hence increase picture quality.
