Crestron Announces Satellite Radio Antenna Solutions
ROCKLEIGH, NEW JERSEY — 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.
