MT. OLIVE, NJ, November 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Integrated Microwave Technologies, "IMT", announced today that it has added 6.5-7.1GHz to the RFCentral-branded microlite product family and a Triple Play 1RU microlite receiver. These new products allow broadcasters to cut the HD-SDI cable between the camera and the Electronic News Gathering (ENG)/Satellite News Gathering (SNG) truck for good. IMT is a leader in advanced digital microwave video systems serving the Military & Government, Broadcast and Sports Entertainment markets. Headquartered in Mt. Olive, NJ IMT serves customers globally through its "IMT", "Nucomm" and "RF Central" brands. "Everyone at IMT is excited to be a part of Skyview capital. This will allow IMT/Nucomm to return to its nimble, entrepreneurial, engineering-driven heritage," says John Payne, IMT CTO. To this end, IMT has successfully launched two new microLite products in November. The successful RF Central-branded microLite family of products now includes a 1 RU receiver designed to simplify its integration into ENG/SNG vehicles and a 6.5GHz microlite transmitter and receiver. The microLite Triple Play receiver chassis houses up to three microLite receivers within a single 1RU rack mount unit. This allows simultaneous reception from three roving cameras. Each microLite receiver has an independent control panel further simplifying its control.
