AB MultiZone - especially designed for coverage of golf courses, multi-venue sport stadiums, racetracks, university campuses and more

 

Multi-Zone technology was designed with large disperse productions in mind to enable easy coverage combined with impeccable coverage.

 

The Multi-Zone was developed based on customer requirement to cover a large production area while making setup and installation easy and without losing a frame and keeping high broadcasting level transmission.

The Multi-Zone upgrade transfers ABonAir’s systems from a Single Zone system into Multi Zone system that can support up to 256 FCEs and 512 Antennas.

AB-MultiZone unprecedented wireless broadcast technology allows the coverage of massive areas and even multiple zones – connecting up to 250 antennas and roaming from one coverage zone to another seamlessly and automatically without dropping even a single pixel.

AB-MultiZone introduces continuous, unlimited coverage with a single receiver connecting up to 250 MIMO antennas. Deployment can start with asfew as 2 antennas and grow as required.

 

The  AB-MultiZone perfectly addresses the coverage challenges of dispersed locations like golf courses, race tracks or separate venues (for example multi-venue productions in colleges, covering both football arena and basketball field).

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.

Up to 512 MIMO antennas connectivity with a single Receiver

 

Enables unlimited coverage of large areas or multiple areas with a single system

 

ABonAir’s MultiZone technology enables the connection of unprecedented 512 antennas to a single Receiver, enabling unlimited coverage of large area events like Marathon and multi area events like Olympic games.

 

Standard wireless transmission’s coverage is limited to 6 or 8 antenna beams with restricted range. Problems arise when covering wide areas such as a golfs course, or the need to move with the camera outside the stadium to dressing rooms or even parking lot. Traditionally, in large area coverage the transition from one zone to the next was not smooth, requiring complex antenna and cable installation,or even a second Receiver. Broadcast productions had to rigorously plan the camera path in advance. The primary issue was the risk of link drop and broadcast discontinuity as the camera transitioned between zones.

Seamless Roaming between coverage zones

 

Seamless Transition between antennas without dropping a single pixel!!!

 

ABonAir’s revolutionary AB-MultiZone allows for large area coverage with seamless roaming between antennas without losing a pixel. This is achieved thank to a combination of unique algorithms like Re-transmit, Per pixel Acknowledgment, routing tables and others.

 

With ABonAir’s revolutionary MultiZone technology you can connect as many as 512 antennas in any desired topology. The transmitter connects automatically to the nearest antenna without dropping the link, ensuring smooth continuous coverage.

 

Colleges and universities often need to cover multiple venues simultaneously and places like race tracks and golf events need to cover massive areas. ABonAir’s AB400 and AB500 series promises to provide continuous, wide-areas coverage with a single Receiver connecting up to 512 MIMO Fiber-based antennas, and roaming from one coverage-zone to another seamlessly and automatically without dropping a single pixel making expensive, complicated set ups a thing of the past.

Fiber optic based connectivity

 

Easy to use and deploy with Fiber Optic cables

 

AB systems can connect the different system elements like Receiver and FCE (antennas) utilizing a fiber optic cables thatare already in place in most locations, making installation extremely simple and easy.

Flexible Topology design with Automatic Topology Identification and setup

 

Easy installation - simple multi-venue coverage with Automatic Topology Detection and Connection

 

The network setup is easy and quick as the topology in place is automatically detected, identified and configured by the main Receiver. The deployed topology can be Star, Daisy chain or any combination of the two.

 

The Receiver main Processor control and communicate with all FCEs and their connected antenna. Based on the feedback from the multiple FCEs the Processor determines the connection configuration, either Daisy chai, Star or combination o the two, then the Processor defines the routing table for each and every packet of Video Pixels, CCU data, intercom etc.
