xG Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: XGTI), a provider of wireless video solutions for the broadcast, law enforcement and defense markets, and private mobile broadband networks for critical communications, announces that its Vislink business will showcase its new HCAM, an HEVC 4K UHD camera transmitter, to the European market at IBC 2017 (Sep. 15-19) in Amsterdam, the world's largest media, entertainment and technology show. HCAM will be among the exciting products for broadcast, sports and entertainment being jointly presented by Vislink and IMT at Stand 1.A69 at the conference.
HCAM represents the next generation of HEVC 4K UHD on-camera wireless transmitters for broadcast, ENG and prosumer cameras due to its highly flexible and configurable mounting options and intuitive video interfaces. HCAM permits 4K UHD wireless video with a 70ms latency via Vislink's world leading RF modulation.
"We are excited to showcase HCAM to the European market at IBC 2017," says George Schmitt, Executive Chairman and CEO of xG Technology. "In releasing HCAM, Vislink has created an optimum solution that makes 4K UHD wireless transmission an attainable option. With user-interchangeable RF modules and a range of software options, HCAM continues the line of innovative, high-performance wireless camera systems from IMT and Vislink."
HCAM features interchangeable, futureproof dual SFP modules supporting quad 3/6/12G SDI/HDMI/Fiber Optic/SMPTE 2022-6 HD-SDI over IP interfaces. It's also designed with Wi-fi and Bluetooth control via a dedicated Android and iOS app. In addition, the unit features integrated camera control with Vislink FocalPoint compatibility and direct-docking V-Lock and Anton/Bauer battery plates with integral power feed through. It is also compatible with Vislink's L1750 range of transmitter modules.
"With the broadcast industry moving more and more towards 4K UHD programming, HCAM fills the need for reliable HEVC transmission," adds Schmitt. "HEVC allows for better compression without sacrificing quality, especially when working with data-intensive 4K content. Broadcasters will now be able to go places and do things never before thought possible when out in the field as well as when covering live broadcast events."
