What the ZAO does for mobile Broadcasting
Challenges live mobile video streaming
High quality mobile video streaming can be challenging from remote locations such as news-gathering situations or other live events that may include sports events being filmed over a wide area. Cameras may need to provide live video streams from a car, motorcycle, drone or helicopter that are moving at speed. The fluctuating availability of the 3G or 4G cellular network makes it hard with traditional systems to maintain reliable HD quality of live streaming content. The RASCOW algorithm combined with H.265 and its small size and weight, the Zao-S provides high reliability that is easily transportable even on a person or bicycle. It can easily be held in a body strap or mounted directly to the camera. Want to know more about live mobile video streaming?
The miniature Smart-telecaster Zao-S maintains HD quality in low 3G or 4G bandwidth environments
Smart-telecaster Zao-S, the world’s smallest mobile H.265 HEVC hardware encoder that can be attached to any broadcast camera, solves these issues. Thanks to the compression capabilities of H.265, coupled with its RASCOW technology, high quality mobile HD live streaming is possible even in low 3G or 4G bandwidth environments. This makes it a first class product for encoding on the move for reliably streaming live broadcast quality content.
Smart-telecaster Zao-S: Minimal latency whilst covering live events
When streaming live events, especially news, a one second delay is very noticeable – Zao-s can provide minimal latency typically half a second but as low as 240ms. Production companies, broadcasters and journalists are no longer getting frustrated with reliability, delay and image quality. Broadcasters and production companies can save money without the need for satellite, RF services or an Outside Broadcast (OB) truck.
