Platinum Uplink Services Delivers Satellite Solutions to Sports Industry

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Platinum Uplink Services as a mobile/integrator sponsor.

The Chicago-based mobile–satellite-uplink supplier, with primary coverage in the Upper Midwest region, is committed to using state-of-the-art technology, knowledge, and expertise to provide superior satellite services to broadcast networks, local affiliates, and corporations.

“Platinum Uplink Services offers the latest technology and reliable event execution through ‘best-practice’ techniques,” says President Dustin Grubish. “Sports Video Group’s ability to create an environment for the exchange of ideas and solutions to an industry that rapidly evolves in terms of technology and methodology is an important relationship for the growth of our business. We believe our membership in SVG will strengthen our mission to maintain Tier 1 service to our clients.”

The company recently purchased an existing truck from Frontline Communications, with plans to drastically modify the interior layout to better suit client needs. Expected date of delivery for the fully refurbished truck is in March.

The new truck will be well equipped in terms of capacity and equipment, with a system design that allows for flexibility according to client needs.  The core of the system will support six transmission paths for both HD and SD, eight-camera input, an enhanced communications package, and multiple-media play/record machines. The interior design will allow up to seven workstations with superior view angles to all video monitors within the production area.

Through March, Platinum Uplink Services will operate a leased triple-path HD satellite truck.
