Video SNG Flyaways


CommSystems offers quick deploy video flyaway systems specifically designed for SNG applications. They support digital video transmission, analog video transmission, or can be configured for dual digital/analog capability. They also support Ku-band, C-band or dual C/Ku-band operation. Services include video, multiple audio, and data transmission capability, with voice orderwire channels available as an option.


Compression Systems

For digital systems, video and multiple audio channels are compressed and transmitted using the MPEG-2 and DVB standards. The system transmits at data rates from 2 Mbps to 15 Mbps. This flexibility means that high quality sporting events, for example, can be transmitted using 9 MHz of bandwidth, while standard news coverage can use as little as 4.5 MHz. CommSystems supports all of the major SNG Compression vendors including Tiernan Communications, Wegener Communications, DiviCom, and Tadiran/Scopus.

RF Transmission System

The SNG Flyaway System can support either C-band or Ku-band frequencies, as well as dual C/Ku-band operation. The various international Ku-band frequencies are supported simply by changing the LNB.

Optional Orderwire Communications

CommSystems offers optional voice orderwire telephone service. Dedicated voice links using SCPC/MCPC technology, Inmarsat, and Iridium systems can be provided.
