Ascent Media Systems & Technology Services has been awarded a five-year contract by FOX Networks Engineering & Operations to provide ongoing system support and maintenance for the satellite earth stations at all FOX Broadcasting Company affiliate locations.
Additionally, Ascent Media will assume responsibility for the upgrades that FOX Digital initiated in 2002, which includes a migration path from a single antenna to a dual antenna satellite system. Ascent will install new Andrew 4.5 meter antennas at about 125 FOX sites.
This project is strategic to FOX in that it will enable the large-scale upgrade, giving FOX the capability to manage network distribution with significantly more efficient digital payload per transponder.
