VertexRSI 9m antenna installed for ViewSat at CBH UK

Skybrokers was contracted in March 2014 by ViewSat to deliver and install a VertexRSI 9.0m Earth Station Antenna at their premises co-located at the Cobbett Hill Earth Station facility in Guildford in the UK. Our technicians successfully installed and refurbished the antenna in three weeks.

ViewSat was a niche provider, serving broadcast and transmission services into sub-Saharan Africa. The company started operations in 2006 as a global media content service provider with over 130 channels worldwide, maintaining a sustained investment in new network capacity and contemporary systems, all designed to benefit its users.

Viewsat’s extensive satellite and fibre network platforms provide a global communications hub to broadcast audio and visual content direct to homes, studios or cable head ends on every continent.

In 2019 ViewSat changed its name to ViewMedia to reflect the expansion of its portfolio to service the requirements of broadcasters worldwide.

VertexRSI offered the full range of earth station and base station communications products and was specialized in fixed and mobile satellite communication gateways, antennas, high power amplifiers, baseband products, frequency converters, controls and microwave components. VertexRSI offered design and engineering support as preparation for the installation.

Skybrokers offers for over 10 years VertexRSI Satellite Earth Station Antennas, new as well as used. We can provide turnkey solutions, refurbishment and upgrades. We supported several clients with new and used antennas, such as the VertexRSI 3.8m, VertexRSI 6.3m, VertexRSI 6.1, VertexRSI 7.2m, VertexRSI 8.1m and VertexRSI 9.3m.

The company was founded in 1973 and operated from 2004 till 2019 as subsidiary of General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies, a USA based business unit of General Dynamics C4 Systems, operating as General Dynamics Mission Systems. VertexRSI was owned by Tripoint Global, a privately held company in New York who bought Vertex in 1999 from Vertex Corp. Tripoint Global was composed that time of RSI, Prodelin, Gabriel Electronics & Microwave and CSA Wireless Communications. Tripoint Global merged Vertex with RSI to become VertexRSI. GDSatcom acquired Trpoint Global in 2004.

In 2019 VertexRSI (GDSatcom) was acquired by CPI, Inc.
