AB4000 - The 4K Groundbreaking Wireless Video Link

The AB4000 is the most feature-rich for both HD and 4K wireless video links for professional broadcasters and cinema productions.

Based on ABonAir’s renowned technology used by tier 1 broadcasters and sport production teams over 12 years, the AB4000 includes unique features that no other system has.

The AB4000 utilizes a wireless optimized H.265 CODEC that ensures a broadcast-level picture quality. In addition to these,  ABonAir’s bi-directional radio technology between Transmitter and Receiver allows steady, robust, uninterrupted, and highly accurate video link as each and every pixel is acknowledged by the Receiver.

Additional features like full HDR support, Tally light, PTZ, CCU and Integrated Intercom make the AB4000 system the most comprehensive solution one can find.

With a coverage range of 300m / 1000 feet and more, intuitive set-up and configuration the AB4000 are ideal for every professional video production and monitoring at any location.

The AB4000 is perfect for:

Sports – closed arenas as well as small/medium-sized open arenas

Studios – reality show productions

News – OB Vans, DSNG and DENG vans

Live events – stadium concerts and street events

Religion – Houses of Worship live broadcasts

Monitoring – movie and commercial productions

Feature-rich, Portable, Lightweight and Affordable 4K Receiver and Transmitter for Maximum Flexibility

4K – full HDR

The AB4000 is a 4K wireless link system that supports frame rates of 4K, 1080p, 1080i, 720p video formats. The HDR supports the highest resolutions of HDR10, HDR10+, 10 bit

Broadcast Level Picture Quality

+52dB PSNR with ABonAir’s H.265 CODEC technology

ABonAir’s groundbreaking CODEC enables accurate frame encoding at high speeds and excellent picture quality

Coverage range

up to 300 meters / 1000 feet range

The AB4000, maintaining the highest standards of 4K – HDR support,  careful radio design combined with advanced MIMO technology, offers  an extremely steady and robust wireless video link for a remarkable  range up to 300 meters / 1000 feet with a clear line of sight

CCU/RCP  to Support Your Current System

The AB40oo™ supports the CCU / RCP (Camera Control Unit / Remote Camera Production units) of all major brands cameras including Sony, Panasonic, Ikegami, Grass Valley, Black Magic, and Hitachi

PTZ support for remote camera operation

The AB40oo™ supports any PTZ Robotic Camera Control (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) and can control any remote installation of a camera where a wire connection is not possible

MIMO  Technology

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 is a unique and essential element of ABonAir’s wireless communication products. The AB4000 is utilizing the MIMO  technique for sending and receiving more than one data signal simultaneously over the same radio channel

Unlicensed 5GHz Frequency

No need to use regulated frequency and pay for frequency

The AB4000 operates over unlicensed frequencies for public use for any purpose, allowing even smaller productions to use wireless links easily and free of charge. Thus, making it ideal for any production. Unlicensed systems drive costs down and motivate large networks to also use them even though they own frequencies, with the usage of broadcasts over unlicensed frequencies they are expanding their overage to new domains and see it as a new source for revenues

Bi-Directional Radio

with per pixel acknowledgment

The AB4000 utilizes bi-directional radio technology combined with per-pixel acknowledgment where 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, thus increasing picture quality

Integrated Intercom

Intercom using the same RF channel

ABonAir’s products are the only wireless broadcast systems supporting an embedded and integrated intercom for communication between the cameraman and the director on the same RF channel as the video content. The AB4000™ does not require an additional RF channel allocation for the intercom or additional equipment support. This reduces cost, setup time and frequency
