Controlcam's New CLI Flyover Service Helping Universities Meet FCC Requirements
By Madhubanti Rudra, TMCnet Contributor
In response to the recent public notice from the FCC (News - Alert), ControlCam, a company known for its expertise in cable signal leakage detection, has rolled out a new CLI Flyover service package for colleges and universities.
The FCC notice requires all multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD)—both cable and non-cable—to monitor for and repair signal leakage if they are using the aeronautical band. The new service, according to a statement, is intended to help universities cut down on the time and money spent on monitoring their cable systems for leakage. A failure to abide by the FCC mandates may result in fines up to $37,500. ControlCam claimed that its affordable CLI Flyover services will help the campuses avoid unwanted fines now and in the future.
In industry for 20 years, ControlCam provides CLI Flyovers and reports to most of the largest cable companies in the United States. The company performs over 2,000 CLI tests annually, covering every region of the United States plus Puerto Rico and Canada. ControlCam’s CLI Flyover Testing and Leakage reports can be accessed online and are ready to be submitted to the FCC.
ControlCam, the parent company of Mar-Tech Engineering LLC., has a large presence in the aerial and ground imaging space and is well known in the cable TV industry for its leak detection services. It also offers an exciting smartphone app called Cam Dash that delivers real-time images and texts for installation, monitoring and verification along with a comprehensive fieldwork management system.
Only last month, the company hired a new CEO. ControlCam’s Board of Directors named David Freedman as the new chief executive officer. Freeman originally joined the company almost a year ago as its chief financial officer and chief operations officer prior to being appointed as CEO.
