With roots in US military communications research, Silvus StreamCaster radios were developed to handle the most challenging military operations on Earth. Now this technology is landing in the civilian sphere. Silvus systems are capable of providing superior performance in situations where high-throughput wireless video and data transmission is a necessity, such as newsgathering, live sports and production shoots in remote or challenging locations. By relying on a proprietary self-healing, self-forming mesh technology in either licensed or unlicensed frequency bands, Silvus MN-MIMO radios are a single network solution for complex broadcasting situations.
Link all of your field assets to the station via a secure private network that enables operation in remote areas where public cell phone isn’t available. Silvus StreamCaster radios excel in dense urban environments, including non-line-of-sight and from within buildings.
Unleash your portable camera operations by mounting Silvus radios to your camera. Silvus StreamCaster 4200 radio is light enough to mount to equipment, creating broadcast wireless systems that provide complete freedom of movement for the camera operator. Coverage can be extended as needed using repeater radios, so your cameras can follow the action, no matter where it leads.
Now every newsgathering vehicle can become a powerful long-distance transmission and reception device. As well as transmitting their own high-throughput HD video, each vehicle in your fleet can simultaneously act as a relay, connecting a wireless camera or MN-MIMO-augmented bonded cellular pack to the station. Multiple Silvus-equipped MN-MIMO vehicles can simultaneously connect to the same fixed site on the same frequency, greatly simplifying logistics for broadcasts with multiple live-shots. Full remote control and monitoring is also supported from both the remote vehicle and the studio side of the Silvus MN-MIMO link. Finally, transitioning your teams to MN-MIMO is seamless. Vehicles can be equipped with hybrid-switchable Silvus MN-MIMO/COFDM systems to ensure backward compatibility with your existing COFDM RX sites.
Move fast and far with MN-MIMO-enabled cellular backpacks. Create a robust and reliable wireless IP connection in areas where cellular networks are not available or reliable. Connect your entire team with multiple augmented backpacks operating on a single frequency/mesh. Extend coverage as needed through the use of repeater radios. Silvus MN-MIMO-equipped bonded cellular packs automatically transition between the MN-MIMO mesh network and any other cellular networks to provide seamless HD video connectivity in non-line-of-sight scenarios, adverse cellular network conditions, or when multiple parties are competing for limited cellular capacity.
Elevate the data transmission capabilities of your aerial assets. ENG helicopters, airships and UAVs equipped with Silvus radios can transmit their own program video while simultaneously acting as a relay, providing connectivity back to the station for wireless camera systems and MN-MIMO augmented backpacks. Transmit video feeds simultaneously from multiple cameras on a single airship over the same frequency channel, eliminating the need for video switching in the aircraft. Return video, IFB and FTP are all supported over the same MN-MIMO RF network. Equip your entire aerial fleet with hybrid-switchable Silvus MN-MIMO/CODFM systems to ensure backward compatibility.
Silvus MN-MIMO radios bring military-grade technology to demanding live-action broadcast situations.
