Tieline will show a 3G wireless broadband cellular remote software module for its Commander G3 and i-Mix G3 codecs.
The company says broadcasters with 3G broadband-enabled cell phones can connect from anywhere they can get reliable wireless 3G coverage, and deliver FM-quality mono and stereo audio for remote broadcasts.
A 3G broadband connection enables data transfer at download speeds of up to 384 kbps and upload speeds of up to 128 kbps. The software has been integrated into the Commander G3 and i-Mix G3 via a USB master module. If the 3G connection supports the bandwidth, off-air studio communications in the background over the same connection can be delivered.
Once a 3G-compatible cell phone (with broadband Internet service on the SIM) is connected to the optional USB master module on the Commander G3 or i-Mix G3 codecs, the codecs take over the dialing of the phone and enable a connection to the Internet and the transfer of audio back to the studio live.
Additionally, Tieline’s remote broadcast over IP system includes a “failover technology” option, which allows broadcasters to go to a backup network should their main Internet connection fail.
