xG Technology, Inc., a provider of wireless video solutions to broadcast, law enforcement and defence markets, and private mobile broadband networks for critical communications, has announced a collaboration between its Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) business and Marshall Electronics to offer a wireless video solution for live broadcasts and sporting events. The integrated bundles of IMTs wireless video transmitters and Marshalls POV cameras will be on display at NAB 2018 (Booths C6008 and C6508).
The integrated bundles include one of IMTs ultra-miniature wireless video systems IMTDragonFly or MicroLite 2 HD COFDM wireless video transmitter as well as a Marshall Mini-Broadcast POV Camera CV502 (HD-SDI) or CV505 (HD-SDI/HDMI). The bundles will provide live broadcasting solutions for capturing points-of-view for supported broadcast programing of any kind. The integration includes paint control of the Marshall camera, accessed through the IMTDragonFly and Microlite 2 Web Page interface.
This collaboration will help IMT achieve a long-range, professional and effective wireless video and camera control solution for customers at a competitive price, said John Payne IV, President of IMT USA. These products work together to provide an all-encompassing solution for both licensed and unlicensed users that are looking to capture high-quality and uninterrupted video.
Our customers have been utilising IMT wireless technology with Marshall cameras for professional sports and other wireless broadcast applications for many years, said Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. It was only logical to collaborate with them to offer a more complete and integrated wireless solution encompassing the strengths of our Marshall cameras and the IMT DragonFly and MicroLite 2 video transmitters.
