Within months of placing its first order for two SNG vehicles, Arab Radio and Television Corporation (ART) has placed an order for a third vehicle from Megahertz Broadcast Systems. This vehicle will be identical to those already being built and will be equipped with an Advent NewsSwift 150cm satellite dish, two Xicom XTRD-400k HPA, Tandberg encoders/receivers and fibre links to and from external sources. Megahertz expects to deliver the first two SNG vehicles, which were ordered at IBC, by the end of the year. The third vehicle will be completed by next spring. “We needed a third SNG to cope with our production demands,” says Hassan Merei, director of engineering, ART. “Megahertz was awarded the project on technical merits, good engineering design and its ability to meet our timeframe for delivery.” ART’s new SNG vehicles will be based in Saudi Arabia and will be used on a roving basis to cover live sports events in the Middle East. “We are on schedule to meet delivery dates for the original order and are confident that the third vehicle will also be completed in time,” says Dave McArthur, director of international sales for Megahertz.
