Arctek Purple Satellite Truck

Trusted C-band technology into a small, efficient and economical package

We've taken our experiences with the Sprinter chassis uplinks and combined them with tried and true C-band technology to create ARCTEK Purple.

ARCTEK Purple is the perfect digital C-band transmission vehicle for sports and live program backhauls. With three levels of redundancy, we have auto sensing HDSDI fail-safe switching, Miteq upconverters that can switch to backup when needed, and MCL amplifiers with the same protection built into the chain. We've included reliable Adtec HD encoding with 750 watt MCL transmitters to provide efficient linear power.


ARCTEK Purple is equipped with a complete HD video and audio monitoring package featuring a highly versatile Evertz multi-viewer that allows you to view your primary and backup inputs, satellite and local decodes, and network return all in one large LED HD monitor.  Also included in the monitoring chain is a Pixelmetrix bit stream analyzer and 16 channels of audio monitoring. Combining all these features in the low-profile Sprinter platform gives you the tools to insure the quality of your HD transmission.

The smaller platform brings an added bonus to broadcast tech managers who have been faced with placing large C-band transmission trucks in already crowded parking areas.
