China’s CCTV selects Nucomm for Olympics aerial coverage

China’s national broadcaster, CCTV, has tapped Nucomm to provide HD microwave equipment for use during the opening ceremony at the Beijing Olympics in August. This is the first HD airborne microwave system sold to a broadcast network in China.

For the Beijing Olympics, Nucomm will equip a helicopter with its CamPac 2 microwave transmitter, a small, lightweight HD/SD COFDM unit intended for wireless/moving camera applications, and Newscaster DR, a lightweight HD/SD COFDM microwave receiver for portable and mobile video applications. Also included in the package is a high-performance, two-axis steered antenna from Troll Systems.

As well as providing overhead shots, the helicopter will serve as an airborne repeater for CCTV during the games. On the ground, two motorcycles will send pictures up to the helicopter where they will be relayed back to a complementary Nucomm portable receiver terminal.
