ThinKom Solutions’ ultra-low-profile and highly efficient antenna supports broadcast quality broadband voice, data and video applications for ‘in-motion’ and ‘stationary’ Satellite News Gathering (SNG) transmission.

ThinKom Solutions, Inc. today announced that the ultra-low-profile ThinSAT® 300 antenna, which provides global Ku-band Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) connectivity, has been successfully proven in SNG & Broadcast Production applications with HDAVS’s EPK Emergency News Reporting SNG Vehicle. The EPK vehicle, equipped with ThinKom’s ThinSat300 antenna was able to transmit at rates in excess of 8 Mbps while maintaining speeds in excess of 140 kmph (85 mph). This demonstration proves that small ultra-low-profile antenna systems can support high quality, high definition SNG applications on commercial Ku-band satellite networks for urgent news reports, while on-the-move.
