Quicklink Bonded HDR Technology

The Quicklink Merlin Backpack Encoder and other Quicklink products have been assigned a unique algorithm that allow users to bond easily two BGAN HDR terminals, essentially ensuring users transmit in excess of 1Mbps. Users can also use the Quicklink Merlin backpack to  bond 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, Internet and Ethernet to gain additional bandwidth and resilience.

Quicklink offers a wide range of Live and Recorded News Gathering Solutions including the Mac and Windows software and streaming mobile Apps. The Quicklink iPhone LNG App is free to download and is perfect for use on mobile devices over BGAN if cellular networks are congested. The App utilises cloud-based servers installed on the Amazon Web Services platform around the world, allowing users to take advantage of shorter distances for video to travel before being routed live on-air or archived for later use.
