Complimentary Coverage Area Products Available from TitanTV, Inc.

(Cedar Rapids, IA January 28, 2016) – TitanTV, Inc. today announced the availability to broadcasters of two free products, Antenna TechSpecs and Signal Area Map, that allow stations to better visualize their signal coverage areas before and after the Federal Communications Commission’s auction of a portion of the broadcast TV spectrum.

While the full impact of the auction, scheduled to begin on March 29, 2016, will not be known for several months, it is certain that some broadcasters may elect to go dark, some could choose to become cable and/or satellite-only stations and others will move to other frequencies.

Antenna TechSpecsAntennaTechSpecs

Up-to-date technical data about a broadcaster’s transmitters is vital to ensuring its coverage area is accurate. Antenna TechSpecs is designed to allow a station’s engineering staff to periodically review, validate, and, if necessary, update the technical parameters of its antennas.

In addition to listing each antenna’s technical details, the application also contains an interactive coverage map. This feature allows authorized users to selectively view the areas served by individual translators as well as the combined area covered by all of its transmitters.

TitanTV’s Signal Area Map application allows a station’s personnel to view a detailed map of its signal coverage area and its geographic and market boundaries. To ensure accuracy, coverage maps are updated each month with the latest technical data gathered from Antenna TechSpecs and other sources.

The use of graduated colors on the map provide a visual sense of signal strength throughout the coverage area. The maps allow a station’s engineering and sales staffs to discover where its signal reaches within its designated marketing area.

For access to these free products, contact TitanTV at info@titantv.com or call 1-800-365-7629.
