Designed to offer maximum flexibility in the pressurised and rapidly-changing OB environment, the unit has a variety of video input options including composite, 3G- SDI and HDMI – particularly useful when accessing material in the field from pro-sumer and semi-professional equipment. Balance audio inputs feature variable gain and 12/48V microphone power. SDI or HDMI embedded audio inputs are also supported as standard. ASI interfaces enable the unit to be used as a stand-alone encoder or modulator.
The SOLO7 OB Transmitter has an integrated control panel with sunlight-readable OLED display covering all major functions and has 16 user-defined presets. A wide range of RF frequency bands are available from
200MHz to 8.9GHz. Users can upgrade the RF section to an alternative frequency band as a low-cost option.
Integrated UHF band Camera Control is available as an optional extra. This is directly compatible with the DTC Broadcast Camera Control System and would replace the stand-alone Camera Unit.
With proven DTC COFDM and H.264 encoder technology at its core, the small size and ultra-low power consumption enables high definition images and is ideal for establishing rugged wireless video links in all environments including mobile, urban and non-line of sight:
- Industry standard DVB-T modulation for high quality and compatibility with existing systems
- DTC UMVL modulation for enhanced high speed operation (motorsports) and improved performance at high frequencies (6 & 7GHz)
- DTC Narrowband allow users to share scarce spectrum allocation efficiently
