Solution Overview

Quicklink are continuously developing their encoding solutions to meet the needs of the industry and the launch of the Quicklink Mobile Encoder takes mobile news gathering to the next level. Designed for performance and portability the backpack transmits high quality broadcast media streaming from the most remote locations.
 

Modern design: Quicklink have designed a modern day mobile encoder that incorporates all of the functionality required to broadcast live video from any location. The encoder can simultaneously bond 15 + connections including Wi-Fi, USB and Satellite. The modular design also allows the encoder to be easily removed from the backpack for use in studios, vehicles and fly-packs.

 

Optimised for satelite: The Quicklink Mobile Encoder automatically optimises its transmission to maximise quality and to minimise latency and includes CIF resolution. The encoder is fully tested on the Thuraya satellite, VSAT and Ka network. The encoder also has full Inmarsat BGAN HDR Integration and control as well as inbuilt GPS functionality with custom integration to your own mapping system.

 

Smaller, lighter, higher quality: Weighing just 1.14 kgs, the Quicklink Mobile Encoder represents the ultimate uplink device for professional newsgathering. To help broadcasters produce a quality live presentation, Quicklink has launched its latest version of the Windows Live software with the installation of the HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) or also known as H.265 (trial). HEVC/H.265 is the standards-based, next-generation codec successor to H.264. It will deliver the same visual quality as H.264 at close to 50 percent of the bitrate.

 

Robust and reliable:  The Quicklink Mobile Encoder automatically aggregates all available bandwidth seamlessly, without disruption of transmission – even as satellite, microwave or cellular connections are added or dropped. The per-network cellular connectivity status includes data such as throughput and network delay per connection in an easy visual display.

 

iStats App

The Quicklink iStats App allows you to monitor your Quicklink video encoders wherever you are, in an instant, in real time. Synchronise the app with your encoders and continuously track their statuses and performance. The Quicklink iStats App stays on alert and guarantees you peace of mind!

Download from App Store

 

Features

  • Connection speed and signal strength monitoring
  • On and Off air transmission updates. Your apple device will vibrate if the video streaming is interrupted
  • Talkback status
  • Source information

How does it work?

Connect your Apple device to your Quicklink Encoder’s Wi-Fi. Once the connection is set-up, you are ready to go. Your Mobile Data can be disabled if required. You will instantaneously  and automatically receive the encoder’s status data on your Apple device screen.

If you wish to monitor another Quicklink Encoder, select the new encoder’s Wi-Fi connection.

Pricing and Availability

  • Quicklink iStats is available on the App Store free of charge
  • iStats requires iOS 9.2 or later
  • Compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple watches
