Datavideo HS-1600T The Smart and Simple Cabling Solution for Live Video Production

Jan 02 2019

Dealing with the cable installation is a necessary evil to most technical crews in the media industry. In order to lessen the work loading of the producer and reduce the complexity of workflow installation, Datavideo has thus developed an HDBaseT interface for data and signal transmission of all kinds between a variety of our products such as mobile video switcher and PTZ cameras through one Ethernet cable. HDBaseT is the global standard for the transmission of ultra-high-definition video and audio, Ethernet, controls, USB and up to 100W of power over a single cable.  The HDBaseT interface design ultimately eliminates the SDI cable clutter without compromising the video quality. 

If you are looking for a solution to save you hassles of dealing with cables, then Datavideo’s HS-1600T 4 Channel HD/SD HDBaseT Portable Video Streaming Studio and PTC-140T HDBaseT PTZ Camera are definitely the right choices for your production workflow. In addition, this solution also supports features such as video switching, monitoring, camera control, live streaming and recording. Therefore, with the easy cabling solution of HS-1600T, even a single producer is able to easily operate the whole workflow by himself.

One Cable Solution for Live Video Production

The HS-1600T 4-channel HDBaseT Portable Video Streaming Studio connects to the PTC-140T on the HDBaseT interface through a single CAT-6 Ethernet Cable, which carries 1080p Full HD video, power, tally signals and controls between the two devices. Because of the HDBaseT interface, device connections have been made easy, reliable and effortless as SDI and power cables are eliminated from the workflow. 

With the HDBaseT technology, we ease your installation in the studio and give you the pack-and-go convenience at field sites. 

Superior Image Quality and HDBaseT Compatibility

Image quality is an essential factor determining the quality of your video. Datavideo’s PTC-140T camera allows the producer to capture high-quality images with the resolution reaching as high as 1920x1080p at 60 fps.  The camera utilizes the H.264/H.265 video compression technique which is widely accepted by the media industry. The PTC-140T is suitable for use in large conference rooms, small auditoriums and concerts.  The 20X optical zoom yields high-quality images even when shooting with a telephoto end. Moreover, the cutting edge 2D/3D noise reduction technology ensures image quality even in lowlight environment.  In addition to its superior optical performance, the PTC-140T is also equipped with HDBaseT technology and PoE feature for data and power transmission, making it an ideal choice for working with the HS-1600T. 

A Cost-Effective Solution

A comprehensive live video production workflow consists of cameras, video switcher, monitors and recorders.  As a result, the installation of the workflow is usually a challenging task for the producer. Not only the capabilities of the video equipment must be considered, the compatibility among the various devices and budget planning must also be evaluated.  

The HS-1600T is a portable HDBaseT hand carried studio that has a video switcher, 17.3” Full HD monitor, camera controller, audio mixer, streaming encoder, and recorder built in. The all-inclusive features of the HS-1600T make it ideal for various applications such as live events, worship, seminars and corporate presentations. The full-featured HS-1600T offers the user an intuitive operation panel and easy cable connections, making it an easily manageable system even in a one-man production workflow. The HS-1600T and the PTC-140T work in perfect coordination with each other. The production workflow is not only cost-effective but also affordable by small-to-mid-sized studios.
