Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs) are critical for broadcasters, and have traditionally been accomplished using uni-directional microwave. This legacy form of STL has been increasingly replaced by wireless links utilizing Internet Protocol (IP). These IP STLs represent an exciting alternative for savvy broadcasters to exploit.
We have collected critical insights from broadcast pros over the years and have now gathered them for you in our IP STL : A Broadcaster’s Guide, which outlines ways to effectively set up and operate an IP STL. Hope you Enjoy!
With multiple channels and the growth of HD in today's broadcast industry, higher throughputs are needed. IP Microwave is the latest technology for broadcasters to carry their content to transmission sites. This can be achieved in the unlicensed 5.8 GHz frequency or in the recently released "Part 101" licensed frequencies of 6,11,18, and 23 GHz. As our world moves more and more to Internet, IP Microwave will reach farther and connect faster to remote sites, and extend your LAN to the outmost points of your network.
IP microwave solutions are high speed, bi-directional, and have low latency. This allows you to upgrade your transmission sites with VoIP and video security without impeding the broadcast traffic. With the proper design and integration, an IP Microwave STL can be more reliable than any other solution on the market today. As time makes this clear to the market, IP Microwave will be responsible for eliminating more and more leased lines.
