Satellite scanner on show10 September 2016
Artel Video Systems is showcasing its Dual-Port L-Band Demodulator and Satellite Scanner (DLC510), adding scanning functionality to the DigiLink Media Transport Platform.
The DLC510 provides two distinct channels for inputting and demodulating L-Band satellite signals and converts them to DVB-ASI for transport.
The satellite scanning capabilities allow users to effectively scan and identify satellite transponders. Using DigiLink’s DL Manager HTTP and SNMPv2-based element management system, the DLC510 provides essential RF information, modulation data and other key metrics used in daily operations in an easy-to-read list, said the company. Operators can then select a specific satellite transponder and send the demodulated signal to the ASI output for transport.
The DLC510 supports the latest requirements for Carrier ID ETSI TS 103 129 monitoring and can be used as a test and measurement system for busy satellite operations or engineering departments.
Paul Seiden, director of international and channel sales, Artel Video Systems, said: “The DLC510 becomes an indispensable tool for satellite operators searching for hidden transponders. With a single click, operators can identify a signal in seconds and feed it to an appropriate satellite receiver to get the signal on the air without delay.”
Artel is also introducing a new line of broadcast-quality media transport solutions to complement its DigiLink and FiberLink offerings.
