BlackBelt wins Product of the Year at NAB Las Vegas

Reliable Performance

BlackBelt is light, portable, and most importantly – It’s highly RELIABLE!
You no longer have to compromise quality for price.  Our proprietary Dual-Path 5G delivery offers ultra-low latency, broadcast quality video with highest reliability available. BlackBelt performs better than bonded cellular and operates at a constant bitrate with no video degradation. BlackBelt is built on the platform broadcast networks turned to for REMI solutions during the pandemic when strict isolation rules disrupted traditional workflows.

Streamlined Workflow

Cloud recording and editing tools give your newsroom access to the live event without the need to schedule a recording. If there is degradation in your live signal BlackBelt will patch the file at the end of the live. This happens in just a minute or two. Your editors can then work with the high-quality pristine video the rest of the day. We go the extra mile and drop the file right into your editor’s watch folder — all of this happens without human intervention!

Easy Portability

Focus on capturing unmissable moments. BlackBelt offers easy set-up and hours of power in one lightweight package. You can connect to your ENG camera with a wired connection or use Wi-Fi and operate untethered to the BlackBelt transmission kit. Need a second camera on the story while your reporter does live shots? Use the camera that’s built into our Android device and your ENG camera is now free to go and gather other b-roll while you continue to do live shots.

WAFB-TV

“Hurricanes forced two sister stations to evacuate their studios.  Before abandoning their buildings in the wild winds and rains, they connected their Live Link to Baton Rouge and routed it to their air. My station then pushed updated weather and evacuation information to their markets until their personnel could move into our building’s Digital Studio and resume broadcasting.  Thanks to our Live Link network, their audiences never lost life-saving information when they needed it most.”
