ADC Supplies Broadcast Gear for Super Bowl

ADC's connectivity broadcast gear has been deployed in Corplex Inc.'s mobile HD production units, which will support the upcoming Super Bowl in Tampa Florida this week. Specifically, ADC's ProPatch Miniature (PPM) System is deployed in Corplex's Iridium and Zinc HD mobile production vehicles.

ADC also announced that its InterReach Fusion in-building cellular solution has been deployed at Tampa's 65,000-seat Raymond James Stadium to support mobile services for capacity crowds at football games and other events. The system will provide coverage throughout the stadium, including the inner bowl, all seating levels, luxury boxes, offices and locker rooms, and the stadium parking area.

"As the broadcast market changes and the demand for higher bandwidth gear increases, the space on our mobile production units is still limited to 53 feet and 80,000 pounds, so we are constantly looking for new advancements and products that can help us utilize this same space in better ways," said Dave Greany, vice president and partner at Corplex. "ADC's ProPatch Series frees up valuable space in the mobile unit by providing 30 percent more density. This translates into a third less space and half the weight of a normal patch bay so I can get more equipment in the truck. And ADC's PPM patching systems work the first time, every time."
