Complete your antenna system….

…or fix it on a building and do the double hop


The Satellite basis unit completes the miniCASTER® NewsSpotter satellite systems with its dual use. You can attach it to a building and use it as a fixed unit. It comes with a reflector, the mounting kit and a professional modem, which allows you to up-and download with 10 Mbit/s.
The basic modem is limited to 6 Mbit/s Up/Down speed and fulfills the most common demands of the markets. If you need to webcast only and HD is not needed, the basic modem is the right choice. The professional modem reaches higher speeds than the basic modem.In addition it has a built in fan, providing better performance even if the modem is built in a studio rack.
If you use the basic unit as a fixed installation it could be a perfect substitute for an expensive landline. In combination with NewsSpotter antenna you could send from antenna to antenna, called double hop.
