SIS LIVE sells six uPod satellite terminals to Brazil
Satellite product design and connectivity specialist SIS LIVE has sold six uPod satellite terminals to leading broadcasters in Brazil. These systems will initially be used to transmit news coverage around the football tournament before fulfilling regular newsgathering duties.
uPod can be packed into IATA-compliant cases and used as a flyaway uplink solution or mounted onto any vehicle. uPod is widely deployed by major news broadcasters around the world to transmit breaking news coverage over satellite, even from the most remote of locations. The terminal features fully automated acquisition and an integrated bookings system, delivering a simple and seamless satellite connectivity solution for broadcasters.
In a notable move, SIS LIVE has recently undertaken the approval process for official ANATEL certification for uPod. The National Telecommunication Agency (ANATEL) is the regulatory body for telecommunications in Brazil responsible for regulating and authorising service providers, managing the national spectrum and orbital usage, and defining telecommunications standards. The pending accreditation for SIS LIVE ensures its ability to deliver quality uplink services in the region.
David Meynell, managing director, SIS LIVE says: “uPod has been a great success in Brazil and these latest sales demonstrate their appeal to these extremely significant broadcasters. I am looking forward to a month of spectacular football and I am extremely proud that uPod will be there to capture the action.”
