PBG delivers for SKY SPORTS

When Pete Baker Group won the contract to deliver video for SKY SPORTS he called upon the reliability of the RM120. They also decided to ship the RM on its own and hire a truck locally.  One of the key features is that the RM  doesn't need any destructive coach building so the hired vehicle can be returned in perfect condition, saving on expensive shipping costs.


The RM antenna is an ultra-compact roof mount system which encompasses the drive control, positioning hardware and BUC/HPA into the aerodynamic antenna enclosure.

Google and DC Satnet Provide World Cup & Internet Access

DC Satnet are using the VM120 in South Africa.  Instead of shipping across a DSNG vehicle they utilised the VM's ability to be drop onto any roof bars without the need for any expensive coach building.  The project, Fields of Dreams  which  is supported by GOOGLE brings live World Cup matches to remote African communities with satellite and projection equipment. http://kenyafieldofdreams.wordpress.com/

 

The VM is a high quality roof mount system encompassing the drive control, positioning hardware and amplifier into the antenna assembly, making the system a robust standalone ready to install on almost any vehicle.
