Clear Channel Satellite is promoting the XtremeSat XSM-7504 audio flyaway program delivery package.
Mobile applications include remotes, emergency services, Webcasting and trade shows. Fixed uses include remote offices, digital signage and disaster recovery.
The package can auto-seek its target satellite via an enhanced controller using an on-board GPS-enabled logic driver, which controls the unit’s azimuth and elevation location drives.
On power-up, the system auto-seeks the target satellite autonomously and locks in the user’s accompanying audio codec. A promotions staffer, the company says, could in a pinch get a remote on the air via satellite without engineering’s intervention or assistance.
The system folds down into a stowage position and is capable of being shipped via air freight or truck. It was shown during this convention season packaged in an optional ATA-rated and weatherproof shipping container. The system requires no on-site licensed operator.
The package exhibited at the spring NAB is priced at $27,500; leasing options are available.
Clear Channel Satellite is based in Englewood, Colo., near Denver.
