Hiltron Reports Strong Interest In Satcom Technology

News Image
Hiltron GmbH, one of Europe's most active satellite equipment manufacturers and system integrators, has reported strong interest in satcom technology.
"Our exhibit at a recent broadcast show in Amsterdam generated more customer enquiries than any other single event we have ever attended," states Hiltron's Managing Director, Michael Schiestl. "These included potential sales leads from broadcast and telecommunication service-providers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The Hiltron H-MAM motorised satellite antenna mount and our capabilities as a satcom systems integrator both generated a lot of interest. H-MAM offers substantial savings in the cost of satellite-based links. It is a field-proven design operating successfully in mobile and fixed-location installations. It is ideal for broadcasters requiring accurate, stable and reliable reception of digital satellite feeds for live feeds such as news, stage events and sports. H-MAM delivers the precision formerly associated with much more expensive satellite antenna mounts and is very fast, moving through 180 degrees of arc within one minute."
Hiltron's HMAM motorised satellite antenna mount is designed for bidirectional VSAT communication or receive-only downlink applications. 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. HMAM is a complete and very affordable high-precision rotatable satellite 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 Hiltron's standard HACU antenna positioning system.
Also exhibited at the show, the Hiltron HSACU satellite newsgathering controller incorporates fully-automated satellite auto-acquisition. It is compatible with all leading motorised satellite newsgathering antennas. The HSACU is designed for integration into SNG trucks or for refurbishment of existing SNG antenna control systems. Housed in a compact rack-mountable chassis, it provides easy and efficient control of three-axis motorised antennas up to 2.4 metres in diameter. Azimuth, elevation and polarisation control are performed entirely in software. Local control is achieved via front-panel pushbuttons and a colour touch-panel graphic display. In IP remote control mode, the entire system can be operated from wherever is convenient to the SNG workflow.
