Client Objectives

Nine’s objective was to install a motorised 7.3m ku-band satellite uplink dish on the roof of the Nine National Playout Centre to support its playout business.

The Ku band (Kurtz-under band) is primarily used for satellite communications, particularly for editing and broadcasting satellite television.


  • Council Development Consent
  • Having secured this consent, we costed a number of alternative solutions including the procurement of a new satellite dish.
  • The most cost effective solution - which saved $300K - was to disassemble an existing dish at Nine’s (Territory Television) Darwin site and to reassemble and lift this onto a new platform on the roof of NPC.
  • The construction of an air-conditioned Rack Room to house the switching equipment, UPS and batteries for the dish.
  • The project was delivered in a 24x7, 365 day live operating environment on time and below budget.
Hi Rebecca, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for such a wonderful outcome. This was a difficult task made easy by the skill and dedication of you and your team. Many thanks for a modern look and feel. I am told the incumbents are very happy and settled. As always, the team at Lpc Cresa delivered exactly what we needed (and some things we didn't know we needed). We are delighted with the outcomes and can't recommend them highly enough.
