The paper explores the technical limits and possibilities to transmit live audiovisual contents in the uplink mode by means of IP networks based on WiMAX broadband system using a professional camera. A previous evaluation of the WiMAX link performances in real urban environments is tackled, and then, obtained results used to implement an Automatic Video Coding Rate Adjustment (AVCRA) algorithm that adaptively adjusts the video codec parameters to the experienced wireless channel capacity. The experimental network also contains a designed antenna small enough to be incorporated in the camera. Special considerations regarding the radiation diagram have been taken into account for not affecting the head of the proper cameraman. Obtained experimental WiMAX throughput in function of the signal to noise ratio, and the Peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) levels demonstrated the feasibility of live video links over WiMAX networks in urban environment.
