[SatNews] When the Australian Traffic Network, Oz’s leading media provider of traffic news and information, and Top Notch Video, a major video and multimedia production company that provides video microwave link services, upgraded their equipment to meet Australia’s latest 2-GHz ENG frequency standards, they turned to Quinto Communications Pty Ltd. and Integrated Microwave Technologies’ (IMT), a provider of advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast and Sports & Entertainment markets.
Quinto, IMT’s official Australian and New Zealand reseller, helped both customers replace their previous equipment with the company’s latest-generation transmitters, enabling high-quality, high-efficiency H.2 64 SD/HD video encoding and transmission capabilities in the new 2 GHz frequency band.
John Payne IV, CTO, Integrated Microwave Technologies, said, “As a broadcaster and production company, respectively, Australian Traffic Network and Top Notch Video reflect not just the diversity of our customer base, but the array of applications of our products in the field, from the ground to the air.”
Based in Sydney, Top Notch Video covers both scheduled shows and unscheduled breaking news events for all of the free-to-air commercial broadcast networks in the region. The company is now equipped with IMT’s Nucomm Channel Master Tx7, an extremely rugged, portable microwave transmitter capable of both MPEG-2 and H.264 HD and SD operation.
Quinto offers a complete range of microwave wireless digital video link solutions, from cost-effective, lightweight, low-delay, miniature low-power links ideal for body-worn, on- camera and radio controlled “QuadCopter” and “OctoCopter” applications, to mobile television broadcast links for vehicles and aircraft, along with fixed wireless links for digital video and data transmission.
