Nielsen Research Deploys ATCi Antenna

Nielsen Media Research has installed an ATCi Simulsat C/Ku Multibeam antenna system at its Oldsmar, Fla. facility.

The antenna will be used to monitor over 300 syndication, network and cablenet feeds. According to ATCi, the antenna can receive programming from 35 satellites at the same time without signal-quality degradation. It has a 70-degree longitude satellite view arc and can receive a variety of C and Ku-band satellite data. ATCi states that the system can perform "the work of 35 parabolic antennas in the space of one and a half antennas."
