What is SMATV?

SMATV stands for Satellite Master Antenna Television, and refers to a system that uses multiple satellite and broadcast signals to create a single integrated cable signal for distribution to a cabling network.

In other words, with a SMATV system you can become your own in-house cable company.

How does it Work?

We install a satellite dish and TV antennae to receive programming from satellite providers and local broadcast networks. These antennae feed into several racks of electronic equipment which tunes in the channels you choose for your cable line up, and combines them into a single cable signal. This feed can also include local sources such as in-house channels such as a campus TV station, information and billboard channels.


If you have existing cable service, the changeover is often as simple as disconnecting the cable company feed and plugging in the new system. If there is not a cable plant in place, we can plan and install a cable network for you.

Red Fox Systems offers a full, design, installation and maintenance service for SMATV systems. From Free to Air or subscription channel dishes and their associated effects, all the equipment we use is of a professional standard. Whether this is a new installation or an upgrade of an existing system, it is carried with the least amount of disruption.
