SNG Central Station

SatService delivered in 1998 the Central SNG Station for NDR in Schwerin as a turnkey solution. This station receives all the contribution signals transmitted from a mobile or transportable satellite news gathering terminal. These feeds are retransmitted after final processing.

The station is in addition equipped with transmitting facilities to provide a full duplex 128 kbps communication channel between mobile and central earth station. This link so called order wire consists of a multiplexed phone, fax and two service channels. In addition a 64kbps high quality audio channel between central and mobile earth station could be established.

Based on this concept, the customer NDR placed additional contracts to upgrade existing earth stations in Hannover and Hamburg.
