Microwave Radio Communications has provided an EXOS satellite package with a Mantis fly away for use by Hearst Argyle in the company’s efforts to continue providing coverage in the devastated Louisiana area.
The system is being used to uplink broadcast quality video and audio signals throughout the affected region. MRC technical support staff have been on hand to assist with any technical issues that may arise throughout this rebuilding effort.
Hearst Argyle is using the MRC Mantis 1.2m flyaway system, which includes a high performance 1.2m carbon fiber flyaway antenna and EXOS baseband and RF electronics. The baseband and RF electronics system is configured with an EXOS MPEG-2 digital video exciter, Satfinder, L-Band to Ku-band block upconverter, 50W SSPA and an EXOS Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD).
