Welcome to the ROKS official web-site

Wireless TV Broadcasting

Most of many countries' territory has one-storey building and low population density. In addition, within the country may be areas with complex terrain (e.g. mountains), where the wiring is economically disadvantageous or even impossible. The creating of a powerful transmitter TV centers with large coverage zones in such regions is impractical. An alternative to high-power broadcasting systems are low-power systems with relatively small coverage zone, but on the other hand, have a low cost and require low capital investments for their deployment. The first task of these systems is to provide high-quality multi-program television residents of small towns. The sources of television programming for broadcasters with such systems can be large television centers, RRLs, satellite teleports, the local studio, etc.

The “ROKS” company develops, manufactures and installs the microwave TV broadcasting systems intended for operation in LoS mode. In all our MMDS (frequency band 2.0 – 7.5 GHz), MVDS (10.0 – 13.5 GHz) and LMDS (20.0 – 30.0 GHz) systems we use original technical solutions based on the technologies, protected by Ukrainian Patents № 24643, № 54275 and № 54644. ROKS systems feature high power efficiency, eco-friendliness and can be completed on up to 90% by our own manufacture products. Our broadcasting systems are installed and operates in many countries with different climatic zones.

Thumb mainpicture   solution


MVDS (MITRIS) can operate at frequencies range 10.0 - 13.5 (Ku-band). Broadcasting standards are DVB-S / DVB-S2 or DVB-C. This system is the most popular solution for microwave Wireless TV Broadcasting systems.


Thumb mmds


MMDS (Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service) is traditionally referred to as "cable TV with no cable". It means MMDS uses everything the same as in traditional cable TV but as delivery medium instead of cable it uses radiowaves.


Thumb lmds


LMDS is a **DS family technology but it uses much higher frequencies - K-band, Ka-band (20 - 40 GHz).
