rf-central-mmrp-eng-news-van.jpgProvides Flexible, On-the-Run, Cost-Effective Turnkey Solution

CARLISLE, PA - RF Central, a Vitec Group brand, and a leading provider of digital and analog microwave systems for the broadcast, sports & entertainment, government, military and international marketplace, is rolling out its Modular Mobile RF Platform (MMRP) broadcast ENG news vehicle.

The MMRP includes a truck chassis based on Motor Trend Magazine's Truck of the Year, the Ford Transit Connect, and features an 1800-watt inverter and compact Wilburt "Night Scan" antenna mast. The MMRP offers superior gas mileage, along with a very flexible and efficient platform for today's smaller news crews.

"We created the MMRP broadcast ENG news vehicle as an affordable alternative to a full-size ENG van," says Integrated Microwave Technologies President Stephen Shpock. "The MMRP's ability to be customized to a broadcaster's needs enables it to provide a viable solution for all different sizes and budgets."

The MMRP also features a full-width removable rack with 27 rack units, comfortable seating for two with a fold-down bench for editing, an integrated I/O panel, an omni/high-gain microwave antenna with pan & tilt unit and the availability for an in-dash 3G/4G computer system.

Available in many configurations, the MMRP works well for urban and rural environments. A shorter wheelbase and lower center of gravity contribute to the vehicle's overall ease of maneuverability, which includes parallel parking.

RF Central can transfer existing gear, or provide options for a full audio/video/RF equipment package. The compact pneumatic mast, low maintenance design and efficient workflow platform come together in a cost-effective system.

"As broadcasters look for unique ways to manage their operating and maintenance budgets, the MMRP enters the marketplace at the right time," adds Shpock.
