MT. OLIVE, NJ – Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast, Sports & Entertainment and MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, provided its Nucomm CamPac2 and Newscaster DR2 state-of-the-art wireless equipment for the Ashgabat Tower, a major television tower in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.
The Ashgabat Tower project houses 13 television studios and 50 editing suites. Seven television stations and six radio stations have made their home in the sophisticated broadcast complex.
“It is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of this exciting and prestigious project,” says Integrated Microwave Technologies Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “We are offering a tremendous solution that allows users to operate their outside broadcast trucks in and around Turkmenistan.”
The Nucomm CamPac2 transmitters and Newscaster DR2 receiving systems offer easy-to-use solutions for fully portable HD camera systems, enabling the OB cameras to go anywhere. Whether it is sports, entertainment or news, the images are always sharp, and glitch free when on the move, using Nucomm's COFDM digital transmission technology.
Coupled with this, the tower has been fitted with a Nucomm Central Receive Solution, which enables the OB vehicles to transmit their pictures back to the television studio live, without the need for satellite airtime. Whether it’s being used as a primary video feed, or backup to a satellite uplink, Nucomm’s Central Receive Solution is a great investment for any television station. Once fitted, it’s free to use and provides many years of trouble-free outside broadcast airtime. With ranges of more than 100 miles, large areas of the country can easily and effectively be covered from a single receive site.
