Antik stated that the main advantage of its new equipment is the possibility of using interactive services such as a virtual video-lending library or a broadcast archive via the internet while also receiving a digital broadcast via DVB-T, satellite or cable.

Antik produces satellite monitoring systems in China, which it plans to sell mainly in eastern Europe. The company’s production lines are located in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong; Antik has 2,000 employees in that region.
