micronewAVENIRMicro & AVENIRDrone encoders: Expanding and adding to their unique modular and stackable design. The next generation mobile encoder for bonded cellular video transmissions for streaming and newsgathering now comes with many add-on options to increase mobility and connectivity.

AVENIRMicro and AVENIRDrone are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, Streambox ACT-L3 Video compression and automated LDMP Video transport for video contribution over 3G, 4G, Wifi, SNG and DNG networks.

New add-ons available:

  • Embedded modem module with four 3G/4G LTE modems with innovative retractable antenna design.
  • Embedded modem module supporting external antennas for industrial video streaming applications.
  • New LCD UI for easy operations and simple menu navigation for non-technical users. Easy access for IFB channel and volume selection.       
  • New simplified web and mobile UI for remote access via Wi-Fi for system controls, monitoring and use.
  • Newly optimized  ACT-L3 video encoder for improved video quality with encoding bitrate increased up to 18 mbps HD encoding.
  • H-Clip and T- Clip carrying clips with integrated Canon battery support.
  • Support for public Wi-Fi hotspot usage.
  • G-mount & V-mount battery support: Custom top plate options to support IDX, Anton Bauer and similar batteries for 4-8 hours of continuous operation.

MicroIn Signal Extender: Hybrid cellular bonding backpack device integrated with the AVENIRMicro inside of an amplified signal extender. This integration provides bonded video transmissions from congested areas with heavy cellular use or in areas where cellular signal is very poor. Integrated with either five or ten embedded modems with V/G-mount batteries for 3-6 hours of continuous operations.
