Nucomm CamPac 2 delivers airborne shots of Beijing Olympics

Nucomm provided one of the first HD airborne microwave systems sold to a broadcast network in the People’s Republic of China.

CCTV installed Nucomm’s CamPac 2 wireless microwave camera transmitter — a small, lightweight HD/SD COFDM unit intended for moving camera applications — in CCTV’s helicopter as part of its coverage of the just-concluded Olympics.

The network also used Nucomm’s Newscaster DR, a lightweight HD/SD COFDM microwave receiver for portable and mobile video applications.

In addition to providing overhead shots, the helicopter served as an airborne repeater for CCTV during the games. On the ground, two motorcycles sent pictures up to the helicopter where they were relayed back to a Nucomm portable receiver terminal.
