Sierra Wireless’ EM9190 5G Module Integrated by Mobile Viewpoint

Sierra Wireless’ IoT background is helping enable Mobile Viewpoint to bring their next-generation 5G mobile video encoder to market.

Sierra Wireless announced that its EM9190 5G New Radio (NR) embedded module has been integrated into Mobile Viewpoint’s new Agile Ultra 5G mobile encoder. Per the company, Mobile Viewpoint is among the first companies to bring to market a 5G mobile encoder able to remotely transmit live 4K Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) video from sporting, news, and other outside events.

In addition to the EM9190 module itself, Sierra Wireless and its partner, Alcom electronics, offered Mobile Viewpoint the 5G expertise, technical support, and global Mobile Network Operators (MNO) relationships they needed to integrate the EM9190 module into their encoder and get the encoder certified by MNOs worldwide.

Powered by the EM9190, the Agile Ultra 5G mobile encoder enables broadcasters, video production companies, first responders, and security services to remotely manage live 4K UHD video production from a central location without compromising on video reliability or quality. This allows them to avoid sending production personnel and Outside Broadcast (OB) vehicles on-site to events, emergencies, or other locations, reducing their video production costs.

CP Communications, a live event production solutions provider headquartered in St Petersburg, Florida, partnered with Mobile Viewpoint to test its Agile Ultra 5G mobile encoder in the United States. 

The EM9190 is currently available globally from Sierra Wireless’ global network of partners.
