The broadcast landscape is changing and we’ve been at the forefront of new developments in mobile broadcast technology since we launched in 1996. Today we can provide you with a complete solution of products ranging from type approved Eutelsat premium quality antennas through to our ‘kit based’ vehicle solutions.
All will have you broadcasting full video and audio at a fraction of the cost of a customised SNG. Have a look below and in our products section to find out more.
Ka-band has liberated the broadcast contribution environment. Our Eutelsat type approved GC-Zero 70K antenna is manufactured in our U.K. headquarters and has been designed specifically to address the many new opportunities that Ka-band offers you as a broadcaster.
Our antennas are the quickest pointing in the industry, ensuring your news story can be seen back in the MCR within two minutes of arriving on location.
But we know broadcasting isn’t always about breaking news. Our antennas work to a range of bandwidth’s enabling you to fully customise your transmission whether it be for on set wi-fi, radio, news or events – kilobits through to 10mb’s – Data through to full HD.
Some of our clients use their Dawson Ka-band vehicles to provide a redundant solution to a separate Ku band path. Others such as ‘Jack Shoot Productions’ use our antennas as a source for the primary feed for global web distribution for events such as the BAFTA’s and ‘The Brits’. We can also offer you an off air signal of most European channels for extra confidence.
Many broadcast clients use Ka-Sat for radio services and we have seen a real growth in demand for our antenna in this market throughout Europe. Recently BBC have ordered a second batch of 50 of our vehicle and antenna solutions for regional radio contribution.
As our antennas do not require you to be a broadcast engineer to operate them the freedom and flexibility of how they can be used really opens up. We’ve trained many journalists and producers and we would be happy to talk with you about how our antennas and vehicle transmission solutions can help you with your broadcasting requirements.
