Actua, a pioneer in satellite transmission, is the first Swiss private operator to have equipped itself with a satellite antenna in the 1990s. With its ability to transmit a signal all over the world, Actua has transmitted all the major events of recent years, in the news and in sport.

Transmission centre

Two live studios are located in Geneva and Paris. The Geneva one is on a green background allowing to inlay any type of images, fully equipped, and ready to be deployed at any time. Paris offers an indoor and outdoor studio, both providing a breath-taking view of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. The two centres are connected to the Eurovision network, Globecast or The Switch, by both optical fibre and satellite. Actua sets are perfectly suited for duplex interviews and operate 24/7.

Transmission truck

Actua's two transmission vehicles are the SUI-25 and the SUI-28. Both are equipped with a 1.50 m Advent NEWSWIFT antenna, two 400W CPI phase combined amplifiers, an 8 kVA Fisher Panda generator, a 40 square grid and Phabrix measuring equipment. These two stations meet the requirements of broadcast transmission. Moreover, a Ka antenna completes the system.
Based in Geneva and Paris, the SUI-25 and SUI-28 vehicles can be quickly mobilized throughout Switzerland and France.
