Winegard partners with Accelerated Media Technologies to provide game-changing VSAT performance to the satellite news gathering market
BURLINGTON, Iowa (April 13, 2015) — Winegard, a pioneer in antenna design and development, today announced a strategic partnership with Accelerated Media Technologies, the leading supplier of news vehicles, to provide the new WV750 VSAT antenna for AMT's broadcast vehicles.
"Winegard's WV750A Ka VSAT antenna provides a game changing solution for the SNG market," said AMT President Tom Jennings. "First, the system's value and size makes it cost effective to mount on small vehicles used by smaller TV stations. Second, its ease of use makes it no longer necessary to have a trained engineer to set-up the system for operation. One person can set-up the system for communication and report the news."
Jennings continued: "Winegard's tremendous value enables us to recommend a VSAT system on every broadcast vehicle we sell. Winegard's system performs to our highest standards of quality and we are proud to offer the system to our customers."
AMT will showcase the WV750A on a vehicle at the 2015 NAB Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 13-16 in Las Vegas, Nevada, booth #N3922.
Winegard's WV750 is authorized for use on ViaSat Exede® Enterprise service.
