The Bridgewater Hall (shown to the right) is Manchester's prestigious
home of the Halle Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and
Manchester Camerata. One of the most fascinating aspects of the Hall’s
construction is that the entire structure floats free of the ground on almost
three hundred earthquake-proof isolation bearings or giant springs, so
there is no rigid connection between the 22,500 ton building and its
foundations. This ensures the Hall’s carefully designed acoustic is
protected from all outside noise and vibration. You might not be surprised
therefore that when the time came to upgrade their sound and video
distribution system, they sought the best possible solution. They chose
Antennair's Quadrant modulator from a specification standpoint, so
permitting the existing UHF coaxial cable distribution wiring to carry high
quality programme material. This meant that installation went smoothly,
with no disruption to the structure, and costs were kept to a minimum.
We are proud to announce that Antennair has been chosen by the
British Amateur Television Club (BATC) to supply both Single Channel
and Dual Channel DVB-S Modulator kits into the Amateur TV Market.
The flexible design of our hardware has allowed a factory
re-programming to extend the output frequency up into the GHz band,
and firmware has been modified to permit several stored configurations
in non volatile memory. To differentiate this variant, it is being marketed
as a 'DTX1' by the BATC. Full support via. Antennair at www.dtx1.info We welcome enquiries from similar overseas organisations and can
design and supply apparatus to specific requirements. Please contact
us for further details.

BBC TELEVISION INSTALLS QUADRANT MODULATORS!
Antennair are delighted to report that the British Broadcasting Corporation have purchased a quantity of Dual Channel Quadrant
DVB-T Modulators for studio use. Until now, some legacy analogue feeds were used to distribute PAL video within their TV
studios, for monitoring and information purposes. In preparation for the European Elections programming it was decided to
upgrade this infrastructure to Digital format. The order was placed directly on Antennair Limited and fulfilled within a very short
timescale, and all the equipment is now up and running - or to quote a BBC Project Engineer, 'Firing on all cylinders - a very
London's Royal Court Theatre order more Quadrants
The Royal Court Theatre, located in Sloane Square in London, has
been described by the New York Times as 'the most important
theatre in Europe'. We were therefore honoured to be chosen as
suppliers of DVB-T Modulation equipment, and following a trial
installation last year, Antennair have now been selected to provide
rack mounted Quadrants (see photo) to provide multiple channels of
video and audio distribution.
