This is one of our newest pieces of kit. The Quicklink system takes full quality footage straight from the output of the camera and streams it directly to a server for broadcast. The fun part of this is that the stream is carried using the existing mobile phone 3g network. Which means you can go live from pretty much anywhere in the country.
This test used just 3 of a possible 6 3g cards!!
We are currently running a pionnering 3 month trial on this technology for RTÉ.
We just went for a nice stroll with a camera and the backpack for about 20mins, No Strings attached or Satellite uplink van either!!
More testing to come
