Hiltron Communications At Broadcast Asia 2013

News Image
Hiltron has announced its full range of satellite communication products and services will be showcased at Broadcast Asia 2013.
Exhibiting on stand 5A1-01, Hiltron will be represented by Michael Schiestl, Managing Director.
Centre of attention will be the HMAM-IOT advanced satellite antenna mount, HCS4 satellite communications control system and HMCS D-SNG satellite-link monitor and controller.
Based on Hiltron's HMAM motorised antenna mount, the HMAM-IOT enables uplinks to be operated via inclined-orbit satellites. Satcom operators can even use satellites that are beyond their main service life.
To conserve guidance propellant, older satellites are permitted to drift further from their nominal target position. The HMAM-IOT incorporates advanced tracking capabilities which enable the antenna to follow these variations in position.
The Hiltron Control System version 4 (HCS4) allows switchover between main and backup devices such as downconverters, high-power amplifiers, waveguide switching systems, MPEG digital video broadcast encoders/modulators and integrated receiver/decoders.
The HCS4 can also be used to power, control and monitor optical-fibre transceivers.
Developed from Hiltron's HCS3 satcom controller, the HCS4 is available with a touch-sensitive colour LCD screen on the front panel to allow local control. Full remote operation via a web-browser-based interface and SNMP is also possible.
Hiltron's HMCS is a software-based compact monitor and controller which enables digital satellite newsgathering truck staff to operate a complete satellite link.
Auto-pointing capabilities enable a satellite feed between two ground locations. The HMCS is a designed as a solution for any new HD DSNG truck or as a replacement for older satellite link control apparatus. It has a graphic interface with colour-coded alarm message handling and provides full control of contribution encoders. The HMCS integrates with Hiltron's field-proven HSACU D-SNG antenna control unit.
