NUCOMM TO PROVIDE HD MICROWAVE EQUIPMENT TO CHINA‘S CCTV FOR OLYMPIC GAMES BROADCAST

Hackettstown, NJ, October 29, 2007 – Nucomm, a leading provider of digital and analog microwave systems for the broadcast industry, common carrier, cable, government, military and international marketplace, announced today that it will supply HD microwave equipment to China‘s national broadcaster, CCTV, for use during the Opening Ceremony outdoor events at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. This is the first HD airborne microwave system sold to a broadcast network in P.R.China.

During the Beijing Olympics, Nucomm will equip a helicopter with its CamPac 2 microwave transmitter; a small, lightweight HD/SD COFDM unit intended for wireless/moving camera applications, and Newscaster DR, a lightweight HD/SD COFDM microwave receiver for portable and mobile video applications. Also included in the package is a high-performance two-axis steered antenna from Troll Systems.

“Overhead shots are an important aspect of sports broadcasts and we wanted a solution that would provide our network with exceptional performance and the greatest possible flexibility,” stated Mr. Ding Wen-Hua, the Chief Engineer of CCTV. “CCTV is honoured to provide coverage of the Olympic Games to our nation and Nucomm‘s technology will play a critical role in bringing viewers across the country closer to the event.”

As well as providing overhead shots, the helicopter will serve as an airborne repeater for CCTV during the games. On the ground, two motorcycles will send pictures up to the helicopter where they will be relayed back to a complementary Nucomm portable receiver terminal.

“Nucomm continues to expand its reach in the Asian market, and a successful partnership with CCTV will further our efforts substantially,” commented Dr. John Payne, CEO of Nucomm. “As the world turns its attention to Beijing next year, Nucomm is excited to help create coverage of the highest quality. With an exceptional design team consisting of highly qualified engineers, Nucomm is positioned to assist broadcasters around the globe in their efforts to shift to HD.”
