News Image
Timeline Television has announced it is to launch a second 4K UHD RF uplink truck. The vehicle is set to launch in Q2 of 2018 and will allow the company to support its clients' increasing 4K requirements.

RF1 – Timeline's first 4K uplink truck – was launched in December 2016 and completed over 80 outside broadcasts in its first year, including a three months in Mallorca for ITV reality show Love Island.

This new truck, designated RF2, will be the latest addition to Timeline's 4K fleet. It will be designed and built by Timeline Television, and will incorporate 4K technology from manufacturers across the industry.

The five-tonne purpose-built 4K RF uplink truck provides a dual chain 1.8m Advent Newswift antenna capable of delivering multiple UHD and HD uplinks.

RF2 also has a 1m Cobham Explorer 8100 KA antenna for remote data services and video over IP. The auto-deploying and tracking KA Band antenna enables connectivity to be achieved in a matter of minutes, ensuring that bidirectional communication can be established and guaranteed.

A 196 bidirectional port Vega router enables 4K video to be managed with ease. A large monitor stack, Dolby sound monitoring and ASI/spectrum analysis provide confidence monitoring. RF2 is equipped with a 9m Telescopic Mast with 35Kg of headload, allowing various antenna to be mounted.

As well as being a traditional RF uplink truck, RF2 has been designed to be flexible and customisable to clients' needs. Uses range from a complete outside-broadcast unit to a communications hub to a newsgathering uplink truck.
