Broadcast Australia successfully completed capacity enhancement field works for SBS’s terrestrially-delivered digital television network ahead of schedule and in support of its newly launched 24-hour dedicated food channel, Food Network.

SBS Manager for Transmission and Regulatory Services Clive Morton thanked Broadcast Australia Project Manager, Tom Palfreyman for his role in the early delivery of the SBS 19-23 Mbps regional upgrade project.

“Tom’s excellent project management was evident at every step of this significant project, which involved configuration upgrades to expand the transmission capacity at 318 sites across Australia by 4 Mbps,” Clive said.

“Working closely and diligently with the SBS team and other key vendors such as Optus, Tom seamlessly coordinated the state-by-state switchovers across 12 districts, concluding the program of works one month ahead of schedule.

“Tom also ensured SBS was fully informed at all stages, so we could in turn inform our audience and other stakeholders of any potential impacts.”

Clive  also applauded Broadcast Australia Engineering Team Leader Steven Naumovski, SBS Account Manager Masoud Rasouli and the all the district teams for their excellent support throughout the project.
