Now you CAN upgrade your existing MDR system to HEVC

Using the Vislink MDR system for your multi-channel wireless camera applications? Concerned you can’t use it to gain the higher-quality video or more-efficient bandwidth usage provided by HEVC without having to replace your current system? Worry no more! The Sapphire-MDR is here to bridge the gap.

“The Vislink MDR has proven to be an indispensable tool for broadcasters of large-scale events, particularly sporting events, such as the World Cup and Olympics,” say Helen Brown, Director of Broadcast Wireless Systems, makers of the Sapphire. ”We knew we could integrate our Sapphire encoding with MDR system to allow broadcasters to easily make the leap to HEVC, without having to discard a tried-and-trusted — and expensive — piece of bespoke kit into a legacy pile.

“HEVC is key for live sports productions. You can gain better dynamic range, wider colour gamut, better resolutions, improved speed and reliability, and lower costs through more efficient bandwith use. The Sapphire bridges an important gap to make this all possible.”

The Sapphire-MDR takes up only two slots in an MDR Rack, and integrates with the MDR Rack’s control system.

Perfect for multi-camera applications

Sapphire-MDR’s unique QuadSync mode can deliver up to 4x decoded HD signal streams over a single channel as it is able to encodes 4x non-synchronous HD signals of differing formats (frame-rate must be the same) and, at the decode side, outputs them converted to a single production format and fully synchronised. QuadSync mode is ideal  for any multi-camera application you might have that requires true flexibility.
