Charlotte, NC (March 8, 2013)-RF Linkup, Inc. is using Studio Technologies' Model 5130 Party-Line Interface Module as the comms interface for its uplink trucks.
The company, which has providing satellite uplink services for the past 20 years to clients ranging from ABC, NBC and CBS to Fox Sports and ESPN, uses the 5130 to interface comms through a fiber link between its uplink truck and other OB production trucks on location.
"RF Linkup is a satellite communications company that handles all kinds of sporting and news events," says Emerson Lawson, CEO, RF Linkup, Inc. "We take a production feed from an OB truck and uplink it to a satellite. From there it will be downlinked to the network, for example, or sometimes we take a feed from a reporter/cameraman setup and uplink it to a network or station. We had been using the Studio Technologies IFB system with excellent results. So when we needed a solution for our comms interface we purchased the Model 5130 and it was the perfect choice."
