PHOENIX, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Antenna Technology Communications Inc., a provider of satellite communications systems, today announced that a large television station has selected the ATCi Simulsat Multibeam antenna solution, ATCi's most popular and widely used multibeam, to outfit its broadcast headquarters.

This major television broadcaster chose Simulsat because of the antenna's ability to receive programming from up to 35 satellites simultaneously without degradation of quality across each signal. With a 70-degree longitude satellite view arc, Simulsat can receive a variety of "C" and Ku-band satellite programming data. Essentially, one Simulsat C/Ku does the work of 35 steerable parabolic antennas and only requires the space of one and a half antennas.

"It is a testament to ATCi's continuous commitment to improving Simulsat technology that this noteable television station chose our Simulsat Multibeam antenna for the important task of streamlining their satellite reception capabilities in such a state-of-the-art broadcast facility," said Gary Hatch. "It is a validation of our engineering, and we are honored that this station now will rely on ATCi's Simulsat to provide the essential "C" and Ku Band downlink capabilities essential to their business," Hatch concluded.
