Press Release Summary:

Satellite Radio Antenna Packages simplify distribution.

November 24, 2008 - Satellite antenna packs aid distribution of satellite radio channels from one Crestron outdoor antenna to multiple tuners using standard RG-6 cable. While SRD-ANT-1-PAK supports one tuner and SRD-ANT-4-PAK supports up to 4, both offer 200 ft range for each tuner. One tuner and high-gain line amplifier are included with SRD-ANT-1LD-PAK, which offers 300 ft range, just as SRD-ANT-8-PAK, which features two 4-way amplified splitters and supports up to 8 tuners (expandable to 16).

Press release date: November 12, 2008

Crestron Antenna Solutions Simplify Satellite Radio Installation and Distribution ROCKLEIGH, NJ, November 12, 2008 - Crestron introduces versatile antenna packages that simplify installation and distribution of multi-room satellite radio. Just one Crestron outdoor antenna can feed up to 16 Crestron XM or SIRIUS satellite radio tuners, and these new satellite antenna solutions enable the distribution of satellite radio channels to multiple receivers throughout the home and office using standard RG-6 cable. The high-performance Crestron antenna features a considerably narrower beam as compared to standard consumer antennas, achieving a significantly higher signal-to-noise ratio. Additional front-end filtering blocks interference from nearby out-of-band RF signal sources such as Wi-Fi, cellular and cordless telephones. For easy ordering and installing Crestron offers the following four satellite radio antenna packaged solutions: SRD-ANT-1-PAK supports a single tuner; range up to 200 feet SRD-ANT-4-PAK supports up to four independent tuners; range of up to 200 feet each SRD-ANT-1LD-PAK includes one tuner and high-gain line amplifier; range of up to 350 feet SRD-ANT-8-PAK (includes two 4-way amplified splitters) supports up to eight tuners: signal range up to 300 feet. An additional 3-way couple can split the antenna signal to each of the two amplified splitters, allowing easy expansion up to a total of 16 satellite radio tuners. The basic kit for each package includes a wall mount bracket, pole mount hardware, F-to SMB adapter cable(s), and weatherproof boot. The 4-PAK features the 4-way splitter and attenuator, and the 8-PAK adds a line amplifier, 4-way coupler, (2) 4-way amplified splitters, and attenuators.
