Cobham previews Solo Micro HD camera transmitter at NAB 2013 Posted: 09/04/2013

Cobham, the RF specialist company that uses cutting edge communications technologies to empower broadcast users, is previewing Solo Micro HD, a fully-featured COFDM digital video transmitter at NAB 2013.

Brown said, The freedom to go anywhere with a camera is important because it enables producers to greatly enhance sporting, ceremonial or news event coverage with innovative shot angles that are not possible with larger, wired systems. The trend in the use of wireless technology to provide on-board as well as point-of-view coverage for sports opens up vast opportunities for exciting imagery that can enable the viewer to experience the action as never before. We are developing this camera with precisely those attributes in mind.
