Teradek disrupt professional wireless video for live production and broadcast with Orbit, the world’s first sub-frame wireless video system that transmits lossless, 4K HDR video over ranges up to 2km.
The Orbit line of products utilises Teradek’s patented Joint Source Channel Coding (JSCC) combined with both MIMO and OFDM, to encode and transmit video over the 4.9 – 5.8 GHz bands. The JSCC approach enables full utilisation of 40MHz / 20MHz channel capacity.
Sustained image quality is visually lossless and offers far better handling of channel interference compared to traditional discrete H.264/ HEVC encoding and OFDM / MIMO transmission methods. This results in an extremely robust wireless link that transmits pristine 10-bit 4:2:2 4K video with less than 1ms latency, up to 2km line of sight.
Information is a little scarce, but it appears to be the previously announced ‘Bolt PTZ’ transitioned into the new ‘Orbit’ range. Delivering video/audio and RS422/RS232 wirelessly at the same low latency and high quality as the Bolt range, it is a neat and tidy solution for integrating PTZ cameras into your Teradek wireless environment. It will be available in HD and 4K variants. More details will be shared soon!

Core is a IP video management platform that allows you to route, record, and remotely manage your Teradek codecs from anywhere in the world. For NAB 2017, we’re introducing real-time transcoding as a feature, allowing you to set the specific bit rate and resolution requirements for any destination you stream to. Core transcoding allows you to get the most out of your Teradek HEVC codecs. Since H.265 adoption is still growing, many platforms and hardware systems still require video feeds in the AVC format. With transcoding, you can stream to your Core account in HEVC and then transcode to AVC for content delivery, saving you plenty of bandwidth overhead in the process. We’re also introducing MPEG-TS ingest for Core, which allows you to stream from third-party encoders directly into your Core account. (More About Core)
