Using proven technology, this new format agnostic system combines a fan-less transmitter with a robust low latency receiver for the ultimate on-set high performance.
Videosys Broadcast will use the BSC Expo platform (stand E05) to launch its new Film Assist System, a robust low latency receiver and transmitter package that is specifically designed for film sets where ultra-quiet, high-performance technology is crucial.
As a leading manufacturer and supplier of quality camera control systems, RF links and camera backs to outside broadcast providers, Videosys Broadcast has more than 10 years’ experience of developing innovative solutions that precisely address the
requirements of its customers. This expertise was put to good use during the COVID-19 lockdown when the company redesigned its successful Broadcast Nano DTC Wireless RF transmitter to create the Silent Nano Transmitter (NTX), a product specifically tailored for the film market.
Colin Tomlin, Managing Director of VideoSys Broadcast, says: “Directors working on a closed set want absolute silence and won’t tolerate the sound of a transmitter fan whirring round in the background. Therefore, our starting point was to entirely remove the fan from our Broadcast Nano so that we could create an ultra-quiet product that
didn’t become too hot to use.”
NTX achieves both these aims and forms the basis of Videosys Broadcast’s new Film Assist System, which is ideally suited to outdoor and mobile locations, as well as locations where RF congestion is an issue. Alongside the NTX, Film Assist System also includes a Diversity Professional Receiver with optional 8-way diversity and highly responsive, state-of-the-art touch screen operation. Capable of handling all major HD frame formats and available in multiple frequency bands from 2.0GHz to 7.5GHz, the Film Assist System also features redesigned down converters that are much easier to mount on scaffold bars.
At BSC Expo, which takes place in Battersea, London from April 7th – 9th 2022, Videosys Broadcast will also show its range of antennas, which have been added to the company’s portfolio following its acquisition of Masthead Antennas at the end of 2021. These cover the frequency range from 2.0-7.5 GHz. and are available in Sector, Flexible and Omni formats. The company is now working on new filter and PA designs, which will be unveiled shortly.
