Brazilian broadcaster purchases Harris STL, UHF transmitter
July 22, 2005
Harris has installed a digital STL and 10kW UHF Atlas transmitter for Universidade Luterana do Brasil.
Universidade Luterana do Brasil (ULBRA) has purchased an end-to-end digital studio to transmitter link (STL) and 10kW UHF Atlas transmitter from Harris.
The link, which Harris installed, provides ULBRA with a bi-directional audio, data and video network between its studios and transmitter site. ULBRA can now transport video and audio digitally within its network, delivering a higher quality picture to viewers. The technology also prepares ULBRA to deliver a digital broadcast signal as they move to a full DTV platform.
The university sought a way to more flexibly transport live digitized video, audio, and data between its main studio in Porto Alegre, its studio in Canoas, and the transmitter site on Morro da Policia. ULBRA also required a digital video backhaul method from its ENG link at its transmitter site in Morro da Policia to its main studio. By combining NetVX, Harris' integrated high-speed networking platform, and a digital microwave link from Harris Microwave Communications Division, ULBRA was able to meet its need for bi-directional transport of multiple digital video streams at a price close to what traditional video links cost.
