Hill needs cable backup

The Architect of the Capitol is looking for a television backup system for network and cable TV programming, as well as internally generated coverage of legislative hearings.

The backup system for the present satellite source will be used in the event of equipment failure or weather-induced damage to ensure programming will be uninterrupted.

The system comprises 18 channels, including news, financial and business information and other material. This content is combined with other programming and internally generated material and transmitted to users across Capitol Hill.
