NFL Films Satellite Installation
Check out this footage of our satellite installation over at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, NJ, explained from our Senior Field Service Technician, Guy Dunphey.
Hi I’m Guy, I’m the Senior Field Service Technician at Toner Cable. We recently installed a satellite system out at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. It is a 5-meter, DH Satellite Dish.
The topography of the area meant that we really needed a crane to get it into place. So we lifted the mount and the antenna in place with a crane. Because the ground was not level, we opted to install the satellite dish in a birdbath position, installing it one petal at a time around the mast. It’s an alternate way of installing the DH dish. There is another way of installing it where you have a level surface and you build it face down, and then flip it over and lift it into place. For this situation, the birdbath installation worked very well.
The antenna is controlled by a RCI2000 controller. We installed a data mcord data link, which will enable the users to remotely access the antenna and control the antenna from their control room.
NFL has 4 existing 5-meter antennas. The purpose of this fifth antenna is to really help them get more content. They’re driven by every week they need more content and their satellite dishes now are totally maxed out. So this dish will enable them to receive more content. We also installed another 3.3-meter dish that they had in stock that we had fixed on one satellite that is receiving just some network content. That will enable them to receive more content as well.
And we at Toner can fulfill any of your satellite dish installation needs, maintenance needs, service needs. Anything that you require for your satellite systems we are more than capable of handling.
