Hiltron Reports Upturn At IBC 2009

One of Europe's leading providers of satellite and microwave communication equipment and systems, Hiltron Communications, reports a substantial upturn in broadcast business at IBC 2009.
Michael Schiesti, Hiltron Communications' Managing Director, stated: "Although the show organisers quote a 7% reduction in overall attendance, we experienced a higher number of visitors to the booth than at IBC 2008 and a much larger number of follow-in sales leads.
"This was in part due to the introduction of our new HMAM motorised satellite antenna which has aroused a lot of interest from satellite uplink service-providers. Demand for long-haul and director-to-home satellite signal distribution capacity is increasing rapidly in response to the worldwide switch from analog to digital transmission.
"A large number of new DVB-T and cable projects are being planned, many requiring satellite links or head-end systems.
"We had lot of discussions with existing and potential customers during IBC related to new turnkey projects for teleports in readiness for the increasing rollout of 1080-line high-definition television channels.
"IBC attracts many of the big satellite service-providers as exhibitors so we had the extra advantage of sharing Hall 4 with some of our best clients. We have already booked our stand for next year."
Hiltron Communications' new HMAM motorised satellite antenna mount is an accessibly-priced high-precision rotatable VSAT antenna mount for use in commercial satellite operations. It includes professional-grade drives for azimuth and elevation plus a high-accuracy polarisation drive and is fully compatible with our standard HACU antenna positioning system. The combined head and drive form a three-axis motorised system with 180 degrees of azimuth adjustment, 90 degrees of elevation adjustment range and fully adjustable polarisation.
Azimuth movement is accomplished via an axle bearing with a drive motor and allows the entire satellite arc to be covered from any position on the planet. Elevation movement is accomplished via a jackscrew with a further drive motor. This design and the use of resolver-angle indicators ensure highly reliable and very accurate positioning far beyond the stability of commercial-grade actuator solutions. The very high rigidity of the construction ensures essentially zero backlash.
Options for the Hiltron HMAM motorised antenna mount include a satellite tracking system, inclined orbit tracking, integration of parabolic reflectors according to customers preference, de-ice systems, and a choice of standard steel mounts or non-penetrating mounts.
