2010 US Open Gets Full RF Treatment From Aerial Video Systems

For the 2010 US Open, CBS Sports, enlisted Aerial Video Systems (AVS) to provide the wireless services for more than 375 hours of coverage spread among CBS, ESPN and The Tennis Channel.

For CBS’s 43rd consecutive year airing the US Open, AVS outfitted CBS’s two Ikegami HDK-79EC HD handheld cameras with Link L-1500 HD transmitters.  Multiple receive sites were connected to the TV compound using AVS’ proprietary RF-over-fiber system.  This allowed for uninterrupted RF video coverage throughout the 42 acre USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

For the two week event, AVS also provided a complete wireless microphone package as well as IFB and PL systems, all of which utilized the RF-over-fiber system.
