Satellite Transmission Services
For your next live sports back haul, news event, video news release, satellite media tour, or multi-site video conference, AMD News has all of the tools necessary to distribute your event throughout the USA and worldwide. From Ku to C band, Standard Definition (SD) to High Definition (HD), MPEG2 to MPEG4, we have nationwide availability of satellite uplink trucks, downlink dishes, and satellite space. Choose from our options below.
Uplink Trucks and Fly Away Packs
We offer a full range of transportable Ku band and C band satellite uplink trucks with HD and SD capabilities using either Tiernen and Tandberg encoding methods. These fully redundant broadcast uplink units are available in every major city throughout the United States and some even have multi-camera production capability. Each uplink truck has an on-board power generator and multiple cell phones for complete self reliance. Conditional Access encryption is also available upon request. We also offer portable satellite uplink flypacks with 1.2 to 1.4 meter dishes: perfect for the Caribbean islands or any other location where an uplink truck can not be effective.
OPTIONAL VEHICLES INCLUDE: HD Dual Path MPEG2 or MPEG4 and 1 Triple Path SD KU digital/analog trucks with fully redundant systems and no polarity restrictions. Our digital encoders can transmit to any Ericcson (Tandberg), Tiernan, or Wegner receivers. They are capable of both 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 video compression format, along with 4 channel audio.
Nationwide availability of portable satellite downlink dishes. With either Ku or C band receivers, and HD, SDI, and analog capabilities, a professional satellite downlink technician accompanies every rental.
With 36, 18, 9, 6, or 4.5 mhz digital transponders available, we have access to some of the most cost effective Ku and C band occasional-use satellite space available, and regularly provide satellite feeds to and from foreign countries.
