This provides many advantages, such as:
- Very low initial cost
- Ready to use in a few days
- Easy upgrade to new requirements
- No operational cost
- No manpower needed
- All hardware maintenance included
- Redundant high-speed internet connection
- Uninterrupted power supply
- Failover hardware
- 24/7 monitoring
- Alert Management System
Sylt 1 is on air since 2009. Since march 2013 the TV station is available to approx. 1.1 million households in digital cable networks of Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg.
