Teradek launches the Teradek Ranger – world’s first 4K HDR, zero-delay wireless video image transmission system. Aimed at the live production broadcast segment, Teradek Ranger is a high-end wireless video system capable of transmitting uncompressed 4K HDR video signal at great lengths up to 5,000 ft.
Moreover, the Teradek Ranger features best-in-class performance in challenging RF conditions and a wide operating range from 4.9 GHz to 6.0 GHz. In addition, the Ranger offers live productions the ultimate combination of incredible video quality and wireless integrity.
Zero-Delay 4K HDR 10bit 4:2:2 Wireless Video Up to 5,000 ft.
At the heart of the Ranger, is a new zero-delay transmission technology called Joint Source Channel Coding (JSCC). In addition, this technology uses MIMO and OFDM, to enable transmission of uncompressed, 10-bit, 4:2:2 video at less than 1 millisecond of delay.
Furthermore, the Teradek Ranger’s exclusive RF design is UNII-5 ready and utilizes 40 MHz/20 MHz channels with far greater efficiency than H.264 / HEVC encoding. Thus offering better image transmission performance in noisy live production environments.
256-bit Encrypted Wireless Signal
Ranger offers the industry’s best protection against prying eyes with AES-256 encryption using RSA 1024 key pairing. Combined, these two technologies ensure nobody can de-crypt your wireless feed or connect another receiver to your system without explicit authorization.
The new Ranger is also compatible with the Teradek Launchpad app for iOS and Android devices. This app allows users to configure their wireless workflow, including pair transmitters and receivers with the touch of a button, monitor channel interference, set operating frequencies, and control your cameras directly.
