Live HD broadcasting using LTE 4G T an LTE base station installed on the mainland. In a model project various technology partners, including Vodafone, Alcatel- Lucent, TDT and Teledata, developed and installed an infrastructure on location, which allows for live images of the regatta to be broadcast from the water, as well as the air and even the shore using the new mobile communication standard LTE 4G. As a result, camera signals were sent from regatta yachts, a plane and a high-shot camera placed on a jetty to The IPTV specialist Teracue was also onboard with this model project, supplying the latest generation of encoder and decoder technology. For the stable broadcasting of live images from the boats and an ultra- light plane, the camera signals were converted into IP signals using a Teracue ENC-300-HDSDI encoder, sent to an LTE router and transmitted from there before being received on land. The very robust encoders are ideal for outdoor and mobile use. Be it wind, spray or interference, the high-quality encoders ensure the stable and interference-free streaming of live images even under extreme conditions. In addition, the ruggedized fanless encoders can be used in almost any environment due to their low weight and compact dimensions he Alpari World Matching Racing Tour opened its international sailing world championship series for the 16th time in 2013 with Match Race Germany in Langenargen by Lake Constance. State-of-the-art encoder and decoder technology from Teracue was on-board to broadcast the offshore live images using LTE / 4G mobile networks. making them space-saving, mobile and flexible, which is an enormous advantage for installation at live events and sports broadcasts. On land, the IP streams were converted back into SDI signals by Teracue decoders (DEC-30-HDSDI) and sent to the event direction and video mixer. From there, the live images are played and distributed to the spectators using fibre glass. With this innovative broadcasting concept during Match Race Germany, the Alpari World Match Racing Tour becomes an outstanding regatta experience for fans and spectators: thanks to live images of dynamic match scenes on land, on water and from the air, they are able to follow and experience the regatta up close. www.teracue.com 28 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 79 JULY 2013 TV-BAY079JUL13.indd 28 09/07/2013 16:51
