Both the latest generation of H.265/HEVC and the proven H.264/AVC compression standards are supported to accommodate new and existing infrastructures. The RACK400 delivers outstanding-quality video and high performance, with up to 4Kp60 combined with eight audio channels for high-end productions.
The RACK400 addresses all the challenges that broadcasters face in expanding their remote production for live events, including sports, entertainment, concerts, political events, and interactive TV shows. Through the RACK400's extensive feature set, broadcasters can produce content with greater efficiency from a central facility. Advanced features include frame-accurate synchronization and video transmission between multiple cameras to ensure perfect and seamless camera switching in the studio, as well as high-definition video return (up to 1080p50/60) from the studio to the venue for confidence monitoring or teleprompting. In addition, the RACK400 supports full-duplex intercom to optimize communication between field crews and studio operators, along with innovative data bridging for remote camera control, tally light management, or any other IP device control during a live event.
The RACK400 provides robust, error-free transmission over any network (i.e., cellular, satellite, IP leased line, or the public internet), ensuring low end-to-end latency, down to 0.5 seconds, thanks to Aviwest's two-time Emmy® Award-winning Safe Streams Transport technology. This technology combines advanced network aggregation, adaptive packet retransmission, and Forward Error Correction techniques to reach high network throughput and maximize quality of service.
