IMT is pleased to share some exciting news with broadcast engineers: our Vislink newsnet™ bi-directional IP-newsgathering solution was recently awarded the prestigious SBE Technology Award for 2017.

The newsnet platform is the first solution that essentially brings the studio directly to the field, fundamentally transforming the effectiveness of ENG operations. newsnet establishes a secure, reliable, high-speed, bi-directional IP network that leverages BAS spectrum. This increases the number of live ENG transmissions and workflows that can now be performed from the field.

While newsnet integrates seamlessly with both legacy ENG systems and cellular, it delivers further operational and productivity benefits. These include optimized workflow efficiencies through lower OPEX costs, as well as lower cellular connectivity costs resulting from reduced needs for bonded cellular transmission. In addition to its impressive bandwidth management capability, newsnet can also utilize a newsnet base station (or receive site) with multiple simultaneous mobile newsnet assets using the same frequency.

IMT is very keen to educate its fellow broadcast professionals about the compelling benefits of newsnet. IMT is available to discuss newsnet at local SBE chapter meetings, as well as with interested broadcast organizations who would like to demo the system, which is currently being done at select broadcaster reference sites.
