Artel Shows Satellite Scanning Extension to Media Transport at IBC 2016

Media transport technology vendor Artel will show its multipurpose Dual-Port L-Band Demodulator and Satellite Scanner at IBC 2016. Launched at NAB 2016, this adds satellite-scanning capability to the company’s flagship DigiLink Media Transport Platform.

Artel’s DLC510 functions as an L-band satellite demodulator and as a fully automatic L-band transponder scanner. As a scanner, the device enables satellite operators and engineers to scan L-band transponders quickly on a satellite. Using DigiLink’s flexible DL Manager HTTP- and SNMPv2-based element management system, the DLC510 lists essential RF information, modulation data, and other key metrics used in daily operations. Operators can then select a specific satellite transponder and send the demodulated signal to the ASI output for transport by other DigiLink modules over IP or fiber networks. The DLC510 can also be used as a test-and-measurement system for busy satellite operations or engineering departments.

“Network operation centers (NOCs) are continually challenged by incorrect transmission information, which results in delays in getting fast-breaking news or sports feeds to air. The DLC510, with just one click, can identify the signal in seconds and feed the signal to an appropriate satellite receiver to get the signal on the air quickly and without delay,” said Tom Beardsley, Director of Product Management of Artel.

Artel Video Systems has been providing broadcast media transport systems for over 30 years, now supporting direct fiber, IP, and managed optical networks. The DigiLink platform is widely used by Telcos, cable operators and other video service providers for primary video feeds.

Artel Video Systems will be in Hall 10, Stand 10.B20, at IBC2016.
