Soliton Systems who opened its European office at the beginning of 2016, continues to expand their reseller base within Europe. Having recently signed resellers in UK, Spain and Italy, Soliton have appointed Seltec to resell their products within the Austrian and Swiss market.
Infact Seltec are a TV production company specialising in live events, especially around sports, but having evaluated the Zao product they were so impressed that they decided to adapt their business model to resell the Soliton Smart Telecaster range of products to other broadcasters and TV production companies within the Austrian territory.
Soliton Systems manufactures the Smart-telecaster “ZAO” product, a mobile HEVC transmitter for streaming live broadcasts direct from cameras’ over multiple mobile 3G or 4G networks. Ideal for news and sports environments, the ZAO product was the first global mobile H.265 hardware-based transmitter that can either be mounted on the camera, or reside in a backpack, and has been used on motorbikes, cars, helicopters and gyrocopters without the need for RF base stations or satellite systems.
“We have a huge amount of experience with the challenges and expense of video streaming for live broadcasts” said Peter Gridling, the Managing Director of Seltec. “When we used the Zao, we couldn’t believe how reliable the quality was, even when the bandwidth dropped, especially as it can in the Austrian mountains!”.
Seltec are extremely well positioned to help and consult with other TV production companies and broadcasters with their vast live sports experience.
“Seltec are not a typical product based reseller. They have the experience of using mobile transmitters in real world environments” said Mark Andrews, the Sales Manager of Soliton Systems Europe. “We are pleased to have Seltec working with us where we can help each other build a brand by helping broadcast companies with their live streaming challenges across Austria and Switzerland.”
The ZAO product uniqueness is its H265 encoding, coupled with its unique approach to bonding multiple 4G carriers. It allows full video HD streaming with low latency, something that is not capable with traditional H264 bonding systems.
