BridgeWave's Multi-Gigabit Wireless Solution Drives 83rd Academy Awards Ceremony
Mar 12, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
BridgeWave Communications, a supplier of 4G backhaul solutions, announced that its FP80-3000 multi-gigabit wireless solution provided the network backbone that allowed high-speed video file transfers between Chainsaw, a creative editorial and post-production company, and the 83rd Academy Awards event at the Kodak Theatre.
According to a release, the ultra-high capacity Ethernet connection enabled the rapid transfer of high-definition video files from Chainsaw's Hollywood, California, facility to the production facilities at the Kodak Theatre less than one mile away. BridgeWave's FP80-3000 eliminated the use of couriers to hand-carry media back and forth between venues, which saved both time and money.
Location Connect, an on-site network and IT service provider for special events, was tasked with implementing the project and for the second year in a row, determined that BridgeWave's 80 GHz solutions best delivered the capacity, speed and reliability needed to meet the Academy's requirements, the Company said. BridgeWave's FP80-3000, the newest offering from the FlexPort product family, provides three gigabits per second over-the-air transmission capability.
"Second chances aren't allowed at the Oscars, so reliability was our first priority when identifying the wireless high-speed connection," said Alex Pournelle, vice president of business development at Location Connect. "During last year's Academy Awards ceremony BridgeWave's 80 GHz gigabit link performed flawlessly, so we worked with BridgeWave again this year without hesitation. Our application required Gigabit Ethernet, but we weren't certain whether fiber or copper was the correct choice. The FP80-3000 let us decide on the spot-either, or both, with the dual links."
BridgeWave Communications is a supplier of high capacity 4G backhaul and gigabit wireless connectivity solutions.
