ABonAir AB407 - 4th Generation 90 Msec Single Zone
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.

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 products 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.

Cover up to 750 meters / 2,500 feet per zone
Optimization of wireless and video requirements and careful radio design combined with advance MIMO technology enable ABonAir engineers to extend the system range up to 750 meters / 2,500 feet with a clear line of site.
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 large networks to also use them even though they own frequencies.
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 acknowledgement 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, thus increasing picture quality.
AB405 Tech Specs
ABonAir’s AB405™ wireless video system, enables camera teams to wirelessly transmit video directly from Cameras to media centers or OB vans. Designed for ENG teams and for video assist where link stability cannot be compromised and picture quality must be high. The AB405™ system is also optimized for basic sports coverage in universities and high schools.
Built in a bi-directional radio channel between transmitter and Receiver, ABonAir’s systems acknowledge the correct acceptance of each group of pixels, thus providing exceptionally robust and reliable transmission.
The AB405™ enables video transmission of up to 750 meters (2500 feet) while utilizing full MIMO radio two antennas at the Transmitter and Receiver to enhance performance and ensure coverage even in extreme radio signal environments.
