Christian Television Network Orders Multiple Comark Transmitters For Non-Repack Requirements

Hitachi Kokusai Electric Comark (“COMARK”) has announced that Christian Television Network (CTN) has ordered multiple PARALLAX UHF DTV transmitter systems for their non-repack requirements.

CTN has been operating several older UHF DTV transmitters that are end-of-life and in need of replacement.  All the new transmitters will reuse existing RF mask filter systems, keeping the upgrade costs to a minimum.

These transmitter systems will be replaced between 2021 and 2023, with COMARK managing the shipment, offloading, and placement of the new equipment in each transmitter facility as well as taking care of the equipment installation, final check-out, and proof-of-performance.

“Comark supplied our first transmitter for our first TV station in 1979, as well many other transmitters for our subsequent TV stations” Stated Chris Mavros, Director of Engineering at Christian Television Network. “We have had experience with some transmitters from other manufacturers, but we have chosen Comark as the company that is our preferred manufacturer to take us into the future.”

“This contract is a continuation of the great relationship between our two organizations. CTN purchased several PARALLAX transmitter systems for their repack needs where we confirmed the product’s performance and reliability. We’re proud that CTN has selected us as a long-term supplier for their high-power DTV broadcasting needs” says Joe Turbolski, VP of Sales and Marketing at COMARK.
