Semtech’s leading serial digital interface technology with Maja Systems’ mmWave wireless devices enables video system providers to offer the highest performance, wireless high definition (HD) video solutions. This wireless camera link technology can be utilized in applications where traditional coaxial or fiber optic interfaces are impractical or cost prohibitive, including:  

  • Broadcast television sports production
    • Hockey point of view (POV) goal cameras
    • Basketball POV net cameras
  • Professional video production
    • Courtroom cameras
    • Houses of worship
    • Corporate boardrooms
  • Video surveillance

The wireless transmission link is equipped with Semtech’s high definition visually lossless compression (HD-VLC™) technology and is uniquely designed to reduce video data rates for long distance transmission. In addition, Semtech’s powerful forward error correction (FEC) engine ensures robust performance and broadcast quality video in wireless systems. Combined with Maja Systems’ integrated multi-gigabit wireless platform, it provides high quality, wireless HD video transmission up to 1080p at 60 frames per second.

“Semtech is a leader in the development of multi-media transmission technologies for long-reach wired and wireless applications,” said John Hudson, Director of Strategic Technology and New Business Development for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group. “The combination of our audio and video processing, signal integrity and multimedia transmission technologies, along with Maja’s sophisticated 60GHz wireless technology and expertise, delivers a unique capability for ultra-high performance wireless solutions that are ideal for an expansive range of camera applications.”

“A 60 GHz wireless HDTV transmission link is ideal for many applications where using copper or fiber interfaces isn’t feasible,” said Romain Pelard, VP of Products for Maja Systems. “Semtech is the industry leader in real time multi-media streaming technology, and in conjunction with our 60 GHz CMOS single chip transceiver and high-performance integrated antenna, created an ideal solution for HDTV applications requiring a cost-effective wireless transmission link and ultra-high image quality.”
