Television del Pacifico (TVP), a leading regional broadcaster in Sinaloa and Sonora States in Mexico, has installed and is operating a mobile studio to transmitter link (STL) to provide coverage of local events within an area of 50 Km radius.
TVP installed a Cable AML microwave link (Salinas model) operating in the 13 GHz frequency band to provide point to point connectivity from a mobile van to a fixed tower site. The link was implemented with a 1.2 meter diameter tower mounted antenna on the receive and a 90 cm diameter antenna mounted on the mast of the mobile unit.
The link enables simultaneous transport of DVB-ASI streams along with IP/Ethernet and data services. Uri Rubio, Television del Pacifico Technical Manager, supervised the installation of the link and commented that “the microwave link has been a complete success. It has been operating since the day it was installed with very good quality signal and excellent reliability”.
