The Direct link compact is designed to meet the needs of single-camera sports and news productions where a highly agile, small crew is of the essence. The system ensures a true point-to-point connection, eliminating the need for cloud subscriptions that adds cost and latency. Direct link compact supports 4-wire intercom for comms with the master control room (MCR), return video path, and features two built-in modems, with the option for additional modems to be added as required.
Like the rest of the Direkt link range, this solution relies on Intinor’s proprietary Bifrost Reliable Transport (Bifrost™) protocol, which incorporates a uniquely effective forward error correction, re-sending (ARQ), adaptive bitrate as well as network bonding to ensure maximum quality, stability, and reliability of the links. The result is more straightforward remote network management and monitoring in the field directly from the control room. As with all its solutions, Direct link compact delivers the ultra-low latency (0.5 seconds) that is Intinor’s hallmark.
Intinor has also added full support for AES67 to its intercom solution, which will further simplify remote production and remote commentary workflows, ensuring greater levels of interoperability with customers’ existing systems.
“We have taken on board what our customers have told us and visitors to IBC 2022 will be able to see the results in our new features, as well as the latest Direkt link compact solution,” commented Intinor’s product manager, Roland Axelsson “We know that in today’s fast turnaround news and sports environment, journalists need a streamlined solution they can grab and run with, with nothing more complicated to do than hit the on button. We have developed a system that needs no specialist technical skill on location but still offers all the capability required to capture and create exciting content.”
Visitors to the Intinor stand will have the opportunity to see how its solutions, including the flagship Direkt router series and ground-breaking Bifrost transport protocol, deliver seamless remote production workflows.
As demand for its products grow, Intinor has also expanded and extended its support service, with longer hours and 7-days a week access. “Our vision is to deliver the best and most comprehensive solution for live video over the internet, this includes us delivering the best possible support for all of our customers” said Ola Johansson, support manager at Intinor.
