IMT and Vislink to Demonstrate newsnet Ecosystem and IP-Based Wireless Solutions at TAB 2018
AUSTIN, TX, AUGUST 1, 2018 – xG® Technology, Inc. (“xG”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), whose brands are recognized as the global leaders in live video communications in the broadcast, law enforcement and defense markets, announced today that IMT and Vislink will be demonstrating its newsnet ecosystem live at this year’s TAB (Texas Association of Broadcasters) show. IMT Vislink will be exhibiting in Booth #116. Also on display will be IMT Vislink’s range of wireless camera transmitters, including the HCAM 4k/UHD/HDR, MicroLite 2, and IMTDragonFly, as well as the IPLink digital microwave radio system.
IMT and Vislink will host a live, fully operational demonstration of how the newsnet technological ecosystem enables IP-based workflow solutions. Newsnet incorporates a high-speed and reliable bi-directional IP network that utilizes broadcasters’ 2 GHz BAS-licensed spectrum. This increases the number of live ENG (Electronic News Gathering) transmissions and workflows that can be performed from the field.
“IMT and Vislink have a history of being at the forefront of video technology advancements, and we continue to update our solutions to meet the demands of changing production environments and standards around the world,” says John Payne IV, president of IMT USA. “TAB is the largest state broadcasting event in the country and is a great show for us to connect with engineers to speak about our extensive line of premium products. With our solutions, broadcasters can collect and deliver secure, high-quality video for live news, sporting, entertainment events and do things that were never thought possible in the field.”

- The MicroLite 2 system is a high-value, compact professional-grade COFDM HD wireless camera transmission link capable of providing high-quality video at distances over two miles, line-of-sight (LOS).
- The IMTDragonFly is a miniature transmitter designed to capture real-time, high-quality video from unmanned air and ground vehicles, bodycams and concealments for display on fixed or mobile receive devices.
- The IPLink digital microwave point-to-point radio system was designed to serve as a bridge to the future for broadcasters from traditional ASI transport to future IP-centric architectures. It supports the industry’s preparation for ATSC 3.0-capable requiring high-capacity long-distance bi-directional IP microwave radios.
