Uplink Floyd

Featuring dual path HD transmission, fed by industry-leading Adtec encoders, and powered by redundant MCL and General Dynamics amplifiers, Floyd’s state of the art equipment is ready to get productions on the bird and on the air. Floyd is the perfect complement to D2’s production capabilities, making lens-to-satellite solutions possible with just one phone call.

Whether paired with Zeppelin, Genesis, our Fly Pack or an ENG Crew, D2 Productions offers its clients a complete solution for production and transmission. Uplink Floyd is staffed by the same engineers that run our production trucks, so the engineer assigned to the uplink can work in concert with the D2 mobile production unit EIC, adding a second broadcast engineer to your show. Of course, Floyd is also a fully qualified satellite uplink truck on its own, and can fill any uplink need, with or without other D2 services.
