Av-Comm demos broadcast technology that delivers live news from war in Ukraine at METexpo22

17 March 2022

Av-Comm was at Sydney’s METexpo this week showcasing the latest satellite communications terminals to the media & broadcast industry. Among our lineup is the Kymeta Corporation U8 terminal for Communications On The Move, as well as the Satcube AB Communications On The Pause. It’s incredible how easy field connectivity for live coverage has become. The SatCube terminal is highly portable and was recently deployed by Australia’s Channel 7 to Ukraine to cover the war.

Av-Comm and the media industry go hand in hand. Av-Comm was founded out of an interest in Satellite Television. It was under founder Garry Cratt, that Av-Comm provided the first domestic Ku Band system in Australia. Today, Av-Comm proudly delivers international television programming to Australia and is the provider of international television for Australia’s leading hotels including The Intercontinental Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Four Seasons Hotel, Shangri-La, Sheraton, Marriott, Novotel, and Sofitel. Additionally, Av-Comm supports the broadcasting of PacificAus TV to audiences in Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Vanuatu, Tuvalu, the Solomon Islands, and Papua New Guinea.
