Gold Spectrum™ Wireless Series

manufactured by

Anton/Bauer®

, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video, film and healthcare technology industries, is the recipient of the 2013 NewBay Media Product Innovation Award, honoring outstanding recent product introductions that serve TV, professional video and broadcast/online radio organizations.

A collaboration between Anton/Bauer and Vitec Group sister company Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), Anton/Bauer’s Gold Spectrum Wireless Series comprises the AB-HDRF Kit, AB-HDTX transmitter, AB-HDRX dual-diversity COFDM receiver and the AB Direct VU handheld receiver/monitor. The compact size of each component of this durable, lightweight and portable system helps streamline workflows in reality TV, ENG/EFP, OB and live event coverage and other applications, freeing up users to focus on the more creative aspects of a production. When used as a complete system, the AB-HDTX transmitter sends its signal directly to the AB-HDRX dual-diversity receiver or the AB Direct VU. It offers an RF output of 100 mW and is capable of accepting a wide range of HD/SD video formats, along with embedded audio from the HD-SDI output on the camera. The use of MPEG-4 compression allows the signal to travel a half-mile in line-of-site applications, a helpful feature while on large, remote shoots. This setup offers users the flexibility to choose between 12 different channels in which to transmit, ensuring the least amount of interference. Multiple cameras can then transmit to one central receive site, enabling a director to conveniently monitor different shots and make adjustments, adding to the creativity of any production in real-time. Together, the components only draw about 15 watts. Anton/Bauer batteries, such as the DIONIC® 90, HD, HC and HCX, can be used with it, ensuring reliable power for extended periods of time. Ultimately, the Gold Spectrum Series creates mobile capabilities no other competitor can provide. Nominations were submitted by manufacturers.
