Satellink at ASU

Fox Sports Net kicks off Pac-10 play in the Arizona State Sun Devil 2010 college football season against the Ducks of Oregon. Satellink West truck #1 with Mark MacKay onboard took care of the High Definition Broadcast, while truck #2 handled the Standard Definition back-up signal with Bob Eichenberger. Outside thermometer puts the temperature at 110 degrees in the shade at 4:30pm PDT, while both operators stay a chilly 72 degrees inside. Hopefully it will be in the 90’s by kick-off at 7:30, for the players sake, but it is not likely. Our HD kits in truck #1 contain Advent 5000 encoders and Sencore receivers to provide whatever HD or SD signal a client may desire. The kits can be moved to truck #2 whenever necessary. A Ranier multi-viewer comes with the kits to give the client and operator several views of the signal as it goes from camera, to truck, to the satellite, and back to the receiver onboard for complete confidence. Go Sun Devils!
