NewsShark V.2 - The affordable ENG solution your news department has been waiting for!
The DSI NewsShark is a portable transmission system (only 6-1/4” x 4-1/4” x 4-3/4”) that can snap on the back of most ENG cameras, using an industry standard mount or travel with a camera operator by means of a convenient shoulder strap.
Using your choice of 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi technologies, the NewsShark encodes and transmits live audio & video in real time back to the studio with higher quality video than cell phones and without the tangle of wires and hardware involved when using a laptop computer for back haul.
Video is encoded in H.264 and audio in AAC, for highest efficiency operations and DSI's unique Robustivity allows the station to adjust the encoding to compensate for varying bandwidth availability, so that you always transmit the best picture that the network can support.
The addition of an internal 4G LTE modem and HD SD/SDi video inputs and outputs, the NewsShark's enhanced capabilities provide the highest video quality possible using cellular technology.
The NewsShark offers a low bit rate IFB feed for the air talent and a two-way IFB for the camera operation
A Tool for Newsgathering
Unlike a typical news truck, the NewsShark can feed video while in motion and is so simple to use that the operator only needs to power it on. This makes it great tool to supply any news staffer with, so that you can make best use of all your station resources.
The NewsShark unit weighs 2-1/2 pounds and is and is entirely self-contained with a 2.5 dB gain antenna and 6100 mAh battery. Typical battery utilization before charging is four to five hours depending on the transmission power required. Battery power can also be supplied via a camera’s external battery, via an industry standard connector or directly from a 12-48 volt DC power source, including a vehicle’s lighter connector.
It can also serve as an affordable means of covering stories outside of your market or beyond the coverage area of your central receive system.
The NewsShark also makes it easy to get a second or third live feed out of an event such as a parade or sporting event.
From innovative products including remote camera systems and low latency HD codecs through engineering services, major broadcasters around the world have relied on DSI for over 25 years to answer their call for technical solutions.
