August 23, 2012 – Burbank, CA – Aerial Video Systems (AVS) continued their long-standing history of providing wireless services to both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions this year.

 The Republicans held their national convention August 27 – 30  in Tampa, Florida.  The host RNC called upon AVS to provide four Link L-1500 microwave systems.  AVS also provided ABC News with one RF camera system, nine wireless mics, eleven IFB’s and four RF PL’s.  ABC’s coverage began each day with Good Morning America, continued with the Nightly News and primetime convention coverage, then wrapped each day with Nightline.  To support ABC’ extensive daily schedule, AVS provided six RF engineers for round-the-clock support.

 When the Republicans wrapped up their convention on August 30, AVS packed its gear and moved north about 600 miles to Charlotte, NC for the Democrat Convention which was held September 4 - 6 at Time Warner Cable Arena.  AVS once again provided ABC News with the same compliment of equipment as the RNC.

The RF spectrum was jam-packed, making frequency selection and coordination critical.  For both conventions, AVS worked closely with the frequency coordinating team of Louis Libin and Howard Fine to ensure clean signals that, when paired with cutting-edge technology, allowed AVS to deliver the highest quality wireless services that their customers have come to expect.
