Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) has signed a deal to provide a range of wireless microwave equipment to Brazilian broadcasting station TV A Crítica, a Rede Record affiliate. The IMT equipment will be used by the station to support broadcast operations in Manaus, the capital city of the Brazilian state of Amazonas.

"We are excited to expand our microwave capabilities as our coverage continues to evolve," said TV A Crítica president Dissica Calderaro. "IMT products offer a reliable solution that we can easily deploy in the field on a range of our broadcast vehicles. This flexibility is what sets them apart from the rest."

Videodata, a Brazilian systems integrator and equipment supplier, facilitated the purchase, which included IMT's RF Central RMR-X6-II Six-Way Diversity Receiver, Nucomm CPTx-II Compact Video Transmitter, two RF Central microLite HD Elite Systems, one in the 5.8-GHz unlicensed and the other in the 2-GHz licensed band, an additional RF Central microLite MPEG-4 Receiver as well as associated block-down converters and antennas.

"With its significant purchase of IMT's state-of-the-art RF equipment, TV A Crítica has made a commitment to provide its viewers with unparalleled broadcast coverage," said IMT divisional chief executive Stephen Shpock. "We are excited to be able to support the station's efforts with our latest wireless microwave solutions."
