What is Smart-Telecaster?
Smart-telecaster is the Soliton solution to live broadcasting and webcasts from anywhere there is a 3G or 4G connection. It consists of the Zao product, HD View software (decoder) as well as the option of the smart phone ML CAM application.

What’s the difference between H.264 and H.265?
H.265 is the successor standard to H.264. H.265 or HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), is the new video coding standard that brings bandwidth savings of approx. 40-45% over traditional H.264 encoded content (ref. HEVC MP and H.264 HP with similar fps). This gives a much improved video quality experience compared to H.264 encoded sequences so being able to give better picture quality, at much lower bandwidths, and much reduced latency.

How do I carry the Zao unit with the camera?
Due to its lightweight (900g) and portability, the Zao can be carried either on a small backpack or can be mounted on a camera and connect either via HD-SDI or HDMI.

How can the HD-SDI and HDMI video input be changed?
It is detected automatically. If both HD-SDI and HDMI input is connected, HD-SDI takes first priority.

Can you connect a number of Zao units to a receiver at the same time?
HD View, the receiving and de-coding software, can receive transmission from up to four Zao units simultaneously. It is also possible to connect the ML-Cam, from the smartphone, to HD View at the same time as the Zao.

What platform does HD-View operate on?
HD-View operates on a standard Win7 server. Please contact your Soliton representative for the latest hardware that is supported. There are minimum RAM requirements and an additional Quadlink card is required for the HD-SDI output.

What is the latency when using Zao?
When using a mobile circuit line, 1 to 2 seconds is feasible. When using a fixed cable line, minimum latency of 240 milliseconds is configurable. It is possible to configure the latency on the transmitter or receiver side during live broadcasting on HD View.

What’s the battery life?
The power consumption of Zao is maximum 28Wh. Depending on the capacity of battery, a 100Wh battery for example, it can be broadcast live for approximately four hours.

How does bonding of the 3G or 4G dongles work?
The Zao allows up to 6 dongles with SIM cards from different mobile carriers. These are external to the unit that allows them to be freely moved, mounted and can be easily changed depending on location.  Soliton uses its own “RASCOW” algorithm to bond these multiple 4G carriers together giving a single “pipe” to the internet.

Naturally mobile signal strength changes on mobile transmitting devices which depends on the carrier, the location and the number of people accessing the cell station at any single time.  RASCOW,  from Real-time Auto Speed Control based-on Waterway model, dynamically adjusts the Video compression rate and Frame rate depending on network conditions in real-time using adaptive coding techniques. Unlike competitive offerings, which pushes the bandwidth to saturation, the Zao keeps operating even under poor mobile bandwidth conditions.

How many communication lines are supported?
The Zao supports up to seven lines. Six USB ports and one wired LAN port.

What kind of communication lines are supported?
The Zao supports 3G, 4G, LTE, WiMax, Inmarsat BGAN, WiFi, and wired LAN.

What is the input video format?
720×480
960×540
1920×540 (29.97p)
960×1080(59.94i)
1280×720(59.94p)
1920×1080

What is the audio input/output format?
The Zao has embedded audio using the Vorbis codec with two-way transmission. It supports voice frequencies up to 48kHz.

The dongles are external – is this an issue as the competition have them internal and more “protected”?

The perception is because they are external they are vulnerable to being broken by journalists as they stick out and could be snapped off as journalists are believed to be stupid and clumsy….

The advantage of course is:

1) they are much easier to change if you do a lot of travelling across borders
2) Being on cables they can be moved to a higher point for better reception if the Zao is static
3) The dongles allow external antenna to be added much more easily then internal dongles. (important for sports)
4) The dongle can evolve independently of a camera, resulting in you can enjoy the latest communication technology.

We are looking at manufacturing some sort of box to house them that will reside in the backpack to make them less vulnerable.
