An earlier version of this story misidentified the user of the system; the user was not named by Shulins’ Solutions.
From our Who’s Buying What page: Shulins’ Solutions said a tower company in North America has made a multi-site purchase of the Stellar Eclipse broadcast site monitoring system.
“With this purchase [the client] will increase their deployment of Stellar Eclipse to over 70 sites across the top 50 markets protecting over 350 of radio and TV stations,” Shulins stated in the press release. It did not name the user.

“Shared common antenna sites often with complex combining networks demand monitoring and protection beyond a simple remote control. To protect these significant investments, broadcasters need a proactive solution to not only provide next level of monitoring, logging and control, but a comprehensive VSWR system for maximum protection.”
It said the unnamed client is deploying a platform and architecture to protect the RF systems for FM and all formats of analog digital TV on VHF and UHF including ATSC 3.0. It also is using cloud-based monitoring of shared systems that Shulins says are often overlooked in an individual station’s remote control.
Shulins’ Solutions also offers drone-based tower inspections and broadcast consulting services.
