Ascent Media upgrades FOX operations

Ascent Media Systems & Technology Services (a unit of Ascent Media Network Services) has been awarded a multi-year contract from FOX Networks Engineering & Operations to provide ongoing system support and maintenance for the satellite earth stations at all FOX Broadcasting affiliate locations.

Ascent Media will assume responsibility for the upgrades which FOX Digital initiated in 2002. The upgrades include a migration path from a single antenna to a dual antenna satellite system. Ascent will install a new Andrew 4.5 meter antenna at approximately 125 FOX sites.

This project will give FOX the capability to manage network distribution with significantly more efficient digital payload per transponder.
