STATEMENT OF WORK Part 1 General Introduction This requirement is for the continuation of the Direct TV subscription with the existing equipment for bulk television and radio signaling to provide news, information and entertainment for patients at both campuses of the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System, Alvin C. York Campus, 3400 Lebanon Road, Murfreesboro TN 37129 and the Nashville Campus, 1310 24th Avenue, South, Nashville TN 37212. Background York Campus The York campus is licensed for 347 beds and currently operates approximately 290 televisions spread out over a campus with 18 buildings receiving TV signal. The televisions are all digital TV s, commercial/hospital grade with Pro: Idiom capabilities, MPEG2 and MPEG4. The existing digital headend system consists of approximately 20 analog satellite receivers (converted to digital output), a digital antenna receiving all local channels, digital mixers, modulators and combiners. The Facility creates at least 3 channels locally, the VA Knowledge Network, The Healing Channel and the Chapel Channel. Prior to converting to the digital output the facility also had a dedicated television channel for a looped patient educational channel. The main signal distribution is over a hard-line coax cable plant with 3 main line amplifiers located in Bldg. s 2, 5 and 7 then distributed to each building s signal closets, amplified then split/tapped to televisions from the closets. Bldg. 11 receives the digital signaling from the headend equipment over single mode fiber. Single mode fiber pathway exists from the television equipment room to the data center where the majority of the facilities single mode fiber infrastructure terminates. Nashville Campus The Nashville campus is licensed for 238 beds and has a mix of CRT type analog televisions as well as digital televisions. The headend system is purely analog at this time. Due to the analog satellite falling out of its orbit, the analog receivers at both campuses and a large portion of the televisions in Nashville will be obsolete in calendar year 2018 leaving the facilities with little to no television reception. Both facilities will require updating the televisions, television signaling and distribution systems to digital HD, either coax, fiber optic distribution or IPTV. Scope of Work The contractor will provide a 1 year, October 1 2017 through September 30 2018, bulk subscription service compatible with the existing Direct TV satellite receivers and channel line-ups for both facilities. The subscription service will be required to be in effect October 1 2017 to ensure continuity of television program reception.
