AMP Visual TV Orders $1 Million in xG Hardware
France-based AMP Visual TV, a provider of Outside Broadcasting (OB) services has placed an order valued in excess of $1 million with xG Technology’s Vislink business. Equipment covered under the order includes Vislink HCAM 4K Ultra-High Definition (HD) systems, UltraReceivers, L1700s, L2174s and FocalPoint camera control equipment to provide wireless camera transmission.
AMP Visual TV will deploy the hardware at events across the world, including the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2018 24 Hours of LeMans automobile racing event. XG expects to commence delivery of the equipment on Jan. 5.
Vislink and AMP have a long history of working together, dating back to the first iterations of wireless radio cameras. AMP has already invested heavily in Vislink L1700s and L2174 platforms.
“This new hardware will be used in the future to underpin our global productions in delivering the very best in wireless video, now including low-latency 4K Ultra-HD,” said Stephane Alessandri, head of AMP’s Radio Frequency (RF) department and international operations.
