January 02, 2018 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
xG Technology, Inc., has announced that its IMT Vislink business has begun initial deliveries of HCAM, which claims to be the first 4K UHD wireless camera systems, to its customers.

In early 2017, Vislink Communication Systems was acquired by xG Technology, Inc., the parent company of Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), with the goal of merging Vislink’s operations with those of IMT.

HCAM represents the next generation of HEVC 4K UHD wireless transmitters, supporting applications such as ENG and sports broadcasts. With highly flexible and configurable mounting options and intuitive video interfaces, the unit can be mounted to broadcast cameras, ENG cameras and even prosumer cameras to broaden the market reach. With user-interchangeable RF modules and a range of software options, HCAM continues the line of innovative, high performance wireless camera systems from IMT Vislink.

HCAM features interchangeable, futureproof dual SFP modules supporting quad 3/6/12G SDI/HDMI/Fiber Optic/SMPTE 2022-6 HD-SDI over IP interfaces as well as wi-fi and bluetooth control via dedicated Android and IOS application. In addition, the unit features integrated camera control with FocalPoint compatibility and direct-docking V-Lock and Anton Bauer battery plates with integral power feed through.

IMT Vislink delivered its first HCAM systems at the end of 2017 to Broadcast RF, and enters 2018 with a growing run rate of orders for the systems. HCAM will be deployed at prestigious international sporting competitions in 2018, including the Winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games.
