Learfield Communications Awards Contract to ICP for Digital Satellite Radio Network Upgrade

Learfield Communications of Jefferson City, MO has awarded ICP a multi-million dollar, multi-year contract for design, development and delivery of a state-of-the-art digital satellite radio broadcast network.

International Communications Products (ICP), Inc. of West Melbourne, Florida has been awarded a multi-year contract with Learfield Communications for the delivery of over 500 digital satellite data and audio receivers along with complete head-end equipment and software. Learfield Communications was the first state radio network, in 1982, to utilize satellite for audio broadcast distribution and is now in the process of upgrading the network to all digital. ADCOM, a predecessor of ICP, designed and installed the original network.

ICP will provide its state-of-the-art, DCR-974 DigiCeiver® Digital Satellite Broadcast Receiver, enhanced with ICP's new store and forward feature. The DCR-974 DigiCeiver® will replace ADCOM's analog broadcast receivers in the new, all digital, multi-channel network. ICP's integrated Network Control and Remote Monitoring System will provide Learfield with vital network quality information and complete control of remote receivers. The flexibility and expandability of ICP's DCR-974 DigiCeiver® design enhanced with a store and forward capability and a powerful network control system were key factors in the award decision.

International Communications Products, Inc. was founded in 1992 specifically to satisfy the needs of news services, financial services, broadcast networks, and large, broadly dispersed companies for top quality highly reliable communications equipment for domestic and international applications. It's new DigiCeiver® product family provides the world's most advanced, agile, and user friendly programmable satellite data receivers for medium and high speed data broadcast and digital audio applications.
