KSBJ Goes Xtreme

KSBJ(FM) is an expanding religious broadcaster in the Houston area. It has chosen Clear Channel Satellite for equipment and satellite program distribution services.

The XtremeSatMedia satellite distribution platform equipment will be at the base of uplinking and receiving program material. The multichannel XtremeSatMedia system uses digital audio, can store and forward programming and can compensate for failure of the satellite or inclement weather by falling back to IP delivery or playing stored material.

KSBJ Chief Engineer Don Chapman said, “We recently replaced our existing satellite with the new XtremeSat System, and doubled our throughput. It has made our delivery system much more robust and much, much more reliable.”

The XtremeSatMedia is made by 2wcom. It is distributed by Clear Channel Satellite.
