CP Communications selects ETL RF equipment to outfit its new fleet of mobile RF production vehicles at 2015 #NABShow

Virginia, USA, and Madley, UK. 13 April 2015. ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF signal distribution equipment for satellite communications, has been chosen by CP Communications to support its new line of mobile production vehicles.

A range of ETL’s RF equipment including switch matrix / routers and RF combiners and splitters has been used to provide broadcasting capability to CP Communications’ six RF mobile units.  ETL Enigma matrices are housed in the production trucks and allow CP Communications to seamlessly switch the RF-over-fibre mini-sites for 18-hole coverage of a live golf tournament.

Living up to its reputation of providing tailor-made solutions, ETL also developed a remote control software solution to meet CP Communications’ unique and highly specific requirements.

“We are delighted to be chosen by CP Communications, as this demonstrates that our RF range is flexible enough to be used in mobile solutions rather than just fixed satellite teleports,” said Susan Saadat, VP of ETL’s North American Office. “CP Communications needed RF distribution equipment with strong RF performance, especially signal isolation, and the Enigma L-band matrix design is the leader in this field.”

In addition to the Enigma series routers in the mobile units, CP Communications built a RF matrix flight pack using two Victor series matrix with RF distribution. This system debuted in Scotland at the Ryder Cup golf tournament.

Kurt G Heitmann, of CP Communications, a global leading provider of video and audio broadcast products and services, said: “CP Communications has the most comprehensive up-to-date digital equipment rental inventory in the industry so it is incredibly important that we choose products that will deliver the best broadcast ability available. ETL not only provides high-quality RF kit but was also able to provide a customised solution to exactly fit our specification.”
