Product Information

ABonAir Wireless Video Link

This remarkable system is the most feature-rich for HD wireless video links for professional broadcasters and cinema productions. It is a highly professional, dual-purpose system that can be easily transformed from a transmitting mode to a receiving one. It relies on lightweight and easy-to-use units that make it a perfect choice for any broadcaster.

Based on ABonAir’s renowned technology used by tier 1 broadcasters and sports production teams over 12 years, the AB4000 includes unique features that no other system has.

The AB4000 utilizes a wireless optimized H.265 CODEC that ensures a broadcast-level picture quality. In addition to these,  ABonAir’s bi-directional radio technology between Transmitter and Receiver allows steady, robust, uninterrupted, and highly accurate video links as each and every pixel are acknowledged by the Receiver.

Additional features such as full HDR support, Tally light, CCU and PTZ, Lens control (L-bus), Loop through and Integrated Intercom using the same RF channel, make the AB4000 system the most comprehensive solution one can find.

With a coverage range of 300m / 1000 feet and more, the intuitive setup, the three mount options (Hot Shoe, Gold Mount, V-Lock), as well as the easy configuration of the AB4000, make it an ideal system for every professional video production and monitoring at any location.

The AB4000 is perfect for:

  • Sports – closed arenas as well as small/medium-sized open arenas
  • Studios – reality show productions
  • News – OB Vans, DSNG and DENG vans
  • Live events – stadium concerts and street events
  • Religion – Houses of Worship live broadcasts
  • Monitoring – movie and commercial productions
  • Feature-rich, Portable, Lightweight and Affordable 4K Receiver and Transmitter for Maximum Flexibility

Broadcast Level Picture Quality

+52dB PSNR with ABonAir’s H.265 CODEC technology
ABonAir’s groundbreaking CODEC enables accurate frame encoding at high speeds and excellent picture quality

Coverage range

up to 300 meters / 1000 feet range

The AB4000, maintaining the highest standards of 4K – HDR support,  careful radio design combined with advanced MIMO technology, offers  an extremely steady and robust wireless video link for a remarkable  range up to 300 meters / 1000 feet with a clear line of sight

CCU/RCP  and CAN bus to Support Your Current System

The AB4000 supports the CCU / RCP (Camera Control Unit / Remote Camera Production units) of all major brand cameras including Sony, Panasonic, Ikegami, Grass Valley, Black Magic, Hitachi, Canon and ARRI.

A CAN bus enables the camera head control of these camera brands

PTZ support for remote camera operation

The AB4000 supports any PTZ Robotic Camera Control (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) and can control any remote installation of a camera where a wire connection is not possible

MIMO  Technology

Multiple Input Multiple Output Antenna Array

MIMO is a method for multiplying the capacity of a radio link using multiple transmit and receive antennas to take advantage of multipath propagation. MIMO is a unique and essential element of

ABonAir’s wireless communication products. The AB4000 is utilizing the MIMO  technique for sending and receiving more than one data signal simultaneously over the same radio channel

Unlicensed 5GHz Frequency

No need to use regulated frequency and pay for frequency

The AB4000 operates over unlicensed frequencies for public use for any purpose, allowing even smaller productions to use wireless links easily and free of charge. Thus, making it ideal for any production. Unlicensed systems drive costs down and motivate large networks to also use them even though they own frequencies, with the usage of broadcasts over unlicensed frequencies they are expanding their overage to new domains and see it as a new source for revenues

Bi-Directional Radio

with per pixel acknowledgment

The AB4000 utilizes bi-directional radio technology combined with per-pixel acknowledgment where both transmitter and receiver can send and receive data and control information: a packet acknowledgment mechanism identifies errors and quickly fixes them (by re-transmitting the corrupted data) before the frame is presented. This enables bi-directional solutions to assure that all the data is well received without errors, thus increasing picture quality
