ABonAir AB612 – 6th Generation 4K Multi-Zone
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 a 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 like 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).

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.
Single-Zone & Multi-Zone
Fiber Coverage Extender (FCE) support
The AB612™ supports ABonAir’s Fiber Coverage Extender (FCE), which enables connection of a single receiver to multiple FCEs in various venue locations (e.g. Horse Race Track – race track, stables and the winning circle) or even on completely separate sites (e.g. football stadium, basketball arena and swimming pool) all via fiber cables with unlimited range.
CCU support for your current camera
Sony, Panasonic, Ikegami, Grass Valley, Hitachi, Balckmagic , Canon, ARRI and RED Camera Control Units (CCU/RCP) and Camera heads
Yes, the AB612™ unique data port technology enables it to support all major camera brand manufacturers.
Cover up to 1500 meters / 1 mile per zone
Optimization of wireless and video requirements and careful radio design combined with advanced MIMO technology enables ABonAir engineers to extend the system range up to a full 1500 meters / 1 mile with a clear line of sight.
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.
For remote camera operation
ABonAir systems can control any PTZ controlled camera for remote installation of a camera where a wire connection is not possible, for a fixed or mobile installation.
Hot shoe, Gold Mount or V-Lock Battery Mount
Suitable for any production
ABonAir’s systems support both battery types to enable any production and any camera use.
