Indianapolis - Apr 4, 2007 - Wireless broadband cellular broadcasts are now possible without a separate cell phone as Tieline Technology unveils two new 3G voice-enabled software modules embedded into its Commander codec. New global 3G networks are enabling broadcasters to deliver wireless stereo FM quality remote broadcasts from the field back to the studio at bit rates comparable with ISDN performance.
The new optional embedded modules come in two choices: one offering connectivity to all three HSDPA/UMTS/GSM frequency bands and the other offering connection via CDMA EV-DO Revision A networks and the CDMA EV-DO Release 0 and IX networks.
Tieline first introduced 3G wireless broadband cellular remote software modules at NAB2006. Previously, users had to connect a 3G-enabled cellular phone to the codec. The new modules will be demonstrated at Tieline's NAB2007 booth, N9311.
3G broadband connections enable data transfer at download speeds of up to 3Mb/s and upload speeds of up to 384kb/s via HSDPA networks. If the 3G connection supports the bandwidth, IFB can be carried over the same connection as the broadcast backhaul.
