Hanoi TV selects MRC Strata for OB van
Hanoi TV (HTV) has selected the Microwave Radio Communications (MRC) Strata portable outside broadcast (OB) system for installation in its new OB van.
HTV is also specifying MRC for its digital microwave build-out. Throughout the last few years, HTV has installed a number of MRC ENG microwave systems that have helped to create a robust communications infrastructure.
HTV opted for a 13GHz Strata two-box configuration consisting of a two-box transmitter and a two-box receiver. The system uses COFDM technology and is DVB compliant. The digital system will enhance HTV's newsgathering range allowing news teams to access locations that historically have been difficult to cover. MRC Strata systems allow shots of up to 37.28mi.
MRC Strata radios come in a wide range of configurations. Strata systems are tripod-mounted units with snap-in antennas and don’t require tools for assembly.
