RFS Announces Official Commencement of Broadcast Relocation to One World Trade Center

First Channel Begins Broadcasting from Manhattan Icon

(PresseBox) (Meriden, CT (United States), )
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced the official start of relocation of live broadcasting to One World Trade Center (One WTC) in New York City. WNJU CH36 is the first television channel to transition broadcast operations to the new future-proof antenna deployment at One WTC, which is comprised of RFS’ UHF PEP40E antenna, combiner and RF switch frame. Other stations will relocate over the next several months, including WCBS, WPXN and WNET.

RFS has spent several years working closely with The Durst Organization, Myat and individual broadcasters on UHF and VHF antenna installations for One WTC- the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere – which will deliver terrestrial television services to the entire NYC coverage area.The new infrastructure atop the iconic venue incorporates RFS’ Variable Polarization Technology (VPT), providing broadcasters with the flexibility to define their own polarization ratio ─ which will prove particularly valuable as channels and standards change as a result of the imminent U.S. broadcast television spectrum repacking program.

"It has been our honor to be such a significant part of The Durst Organization’s major endeavor to bring over-the-air broadcasting services back to downtown Manhattan and today marks a monumental accomplishment for all of us," said Herbert Merz, CEO, RFS. "We’re prepared for the next steps in transitioning broadcasting for the remaining stations over to One WTC in the months ahead."

John Lyons, Assistant Vice President and Director of Broadcast Communications at The Durst Organization, said, "The products and support supplied by RFS’ broadcast team have exceeded our expectations and met all of the rigorous project performance standards to date. I am proud of what we have been able to collectively accomplish at One World Trade and look forward to fully completing the relocation with continued success."

"This project has been very logistically complex and I would like to commend the tremendous effort of everyone involved in achieving this significant milestone," said Nick Wymant, CTO of RFS' Broadcast Division.

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held today at 10AM at One World Trade Center.
