HIGH QUALITY H.265 LIVE MOBILE VIDEO STREAMING
Ideal for news gathering and remote sports production, the Smart-telecaster Zao was the world’s first mobile H.265 HEVC hardware encoder and enables full HD (1080i) live video mobile transmission of live events from a remote location to anywhere in the world, with a simple unit attached to the camera. Easy to use, high quality, highly reliable, low latency.
H.265 HEVC encoding which is 50% more efficient than traditional H264. The benefits are mutiple in that the Zao will continue to operate in low bandwidth situations when the mobile phone signal is weak, as well as keeping latency lower that traditional systems.
RASCOW is a protocol developed by Soliton Systems to ensure stable, high-quality image transmission over mobile access networks. It dynamically monitors signal strength on all connected modems, and adjusts in real time.
Compression rates automatically adapted to bit rate
To ensure smooth, lag-free transmission compression ratios and frame rates are dynamically adjusted according to the bit rate. A self-sustaining recovery is made at the time of network restoration.
Audio highest priority
High quality audio is essential. RASCOW technology allocates the highest priority to optimal audio quality and will keep audio going in almost zero bandwidth situations as long as possible where it is impossible to continue video.
Audio Communication (IFB)
The Zao supports an audio jack for headphones to hear commands from HDView (the decoder). The Zao has embedded audio using the Vorbis codec. It supports voice frequencies up to 48kHz.
ARQ QoS network optimization methods are used to keep the transmission stable, even under data loss conditions.
Lightweight and small
Due to its lightweight (900g) and portability, the Zao can be carried either on a small backpack or can be mounted on a camera and connect either via HD-SDI or HDMI to the camera.
Long battery Life
The power consumption of Zao is maximum 28Wh. Depending on the capacity of battery, a 100Wh battery for example, it can be broadcast live for approximately four hours. The Zao can support up to 2 standard external (VLock) batteries giving a total of 8 hours of continual use.
Up to 7 communication lines are supported
The Zao supports up to seven lines. Six USB ports and one wired LAN port.
Communication lines supported
The Zao supports 3G, 4G, LTE, WiMax, Inmarsat BGAN, WiFi, and wired LAN.
