TV3 acquires Advent Mantis flyaway for rugby coverage

To prepare for the ongoing Rugby World Cup, TV3 New Zealand upgraded its flyaway equipment with a new Advent Communications Mantis flyaway kit.

TV3 acquired a complete flyaway package with a high-powered amplifier and Advent’s video exciter, upconverter and automatic satellite finder. The New Zealand broadcaster picked up the new flyaway from the Advent Communications factory in Chesham, UK, and took it directly to France to begin coverage of cup play.

The 1m Mantis stows in a single suitcase-style container weighing only 44lbs and meets stringent airline weight restrictions.
