IMT to Highlight Modular Mobile RF Platform at CCW 2010
Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) will showcase its Modular Mobile RF Platform (MMRP) broadcast ENG news vehicle at Content & Communications World (CCW) 2010 on Oct. 13-14 (Booth 930).
The MMRP is available in SD or Full HD configuration and features a full-width removable rack with 27 rack units, comfortable seating for two with a fold-down bench for editing, an integrated I/O panel, an omni/high-gain microwave antenna with pan & tilt and the availability for an in-dash 3G/4G computer system.
“We created the MMRP broadcast ENG news vehicle as we saw the increasing demand for an affordable alternative to a full-size ENG van,” says Stephen Shpock, president, Integrated Microwave Technologies. “The MMRP’s ability to be customized to a broadcaster’s needs enables it to provide a viable solution for all different size budgets and operations.”
IMT (a business unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division) can transfer existing gear or provide options for SD or a full HD audio/video/RF equipment package. The compact pneumatic mast, low maintenance design and efficient workflow platform come together in a cost-effective system.
In addition, the MMRP features the Ford Transit Connect truck chassis, based on Motor Trend Magazine’s “Truck of the Year,” and comes equipped with an 1800-watt inverter and compact Wilburt “Night Scan” antenna mast.
Available in many configurations, the MMRP works well for urban and rural environments. A shorter wheelbase and lower center of gravity contribute to the vehicle’s overall ease of maneuverability, which includes parallel parking.
“We have received a lot of interest since debuting the MMRP and look forward to demonstrating the abundance of features it has to offer to our potential customers and the media at CCW,” says Shpock.
