Aviwest and ADTEL provides stunning images of Colombian races thanks to its cellular transmitters

Aviwest has recently announced that ADTEL, its distributor for LATAM region, has deployed PRO3 and AIR320 bonded cellular transmitters for a live broadcast of the 2022 national car racing championship (Campeonato Nacional de Automovilismo (CNA) in Bogota, Colombia).

The PRO 3 solution was installed inside race driver Daniel Fernandez’s car during the qualifying and racing laps. The result was an immersive live experience for fans on his Facebook and YouTube pages.

In order to track Fernandez’s location, monitor the car’s status, and communicate with him in real time, the racing team in the pit received a return thanks to Aviwest’s AIR320 encoder paired with an external QUAD CellLink active 4G/3G multi-antenna.

ADTEL used six of the eight internal modems embedded in the Aviwest PRO3 Series to stream live directly to social media platforms over cellular networks at 4.5 Mbps with 800 ms latency. With the AIR320, they had two internal modems — combined with the additional four QUAD CellLink modems — for the video return function.

“The Aviwest solution enabled us to flawlessly broadcast live over 4G/3G networks at 185 km per hour. Moreover, it allowed us to dramatically streamline our technical setup,” said Andrés Rojas, Broadcast Account Manager at ADTEL LATAM. “With Aviwest, there was no need to install numerous HF antennas and deploy multiple cables all around the circuit, which makes things much easier and is far less costly.”
