Nucomm To Provide HD Microwave Equipment To China's CCTV For Olympics

Nucomm part of the Vitec Group, has announced that it will supply HD microwave equipment to China's national broadcaster, CCTV, for use during the Opening Ceremony outdoor events at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
This is the first HD airborne microwave system sold to a broadcast network in China.
During the Beijing Olympics, Nucomm will equip a helicopter with its CamPac 2 microwave transmitter; a small, lightweight HD/SD COFDM unit intended for wireless/moving camera applications, and Newscaster DR, a lightweight HD/SD COFDM microwave receiver for portable and mobile video applications. Also included in the package is a high-performance two-axis steered antenna from Troll Systems.
As well as providing overhead shots, the helicopter will serve as an airborne repeater for CCTV during the games. On the ground, two motorcycles will send pictures up to the helicopter where they will be relayed back to a complementary Nucomm portable receiver terminal.
