SIS Live to demonstrate ManPak VSAT terminal at CABSAT

21 February 2012

Outside broadcast and satellite uplink specialists SIS Live will reveal the latest addition to their product range at CABSAT, the Dubai-based digital media and satellite expo. ManPak is an integrated and compact VSAT terminal that provides a high bandwidth connection capable of high-speed data and HD SNG transmissions. The unit features a high performance 60cm parabolic antenna, and can be used in X, Ku and Ka bands. “The ManPak unit is the latest addition to our product range and incorporates our immense acquired knowledge and expertise in the development of mobile VSAT technology,” said David Meynell, managing director, SIS Live. “This terminal packs a huge range of features into a truly portable unit, enhancing the possibilities for use in a wide range of rapid deployment field applications. I believe the ManPak will radically change the way data is transmitted for multiple markets.” ManPak’s Cartridge Modem system allows for complete flexibility supporting multi-formats including iDirect. The simple design allows for rapid deployment, making it ideal for fast responding newscasters, disaster recovery, emergency services, military and special operations. This unit can be comfortably carried in a rucksack or bag across rough terrain and checked in as airline baggage, being fully IATA compliant and exceptionally light. It can be powered by AC adapter or 24 VDC with ‘hot-swappable’ MIL batteries, is weatherproof to IP65, and MIL STD 810F compliant, enabling transmissions to take place in difficult environmental and hazardous conditions. ManPak is exceptionally easy to use, has a high gain, is multi-band, can acquire and be used on any satellite using SIS Live’s award-winning GUI, and can be out of its bag and operating live in less than three minutes. Also on display at CABSAT will be uPak 60, a fully automated lightweight, flat plate VSAT terminal, Tr-uPod, a compact tripod satellite uplink system, uPod, an automated drive/fly system and RouteCase, the powerful, compact and affordable 4 channel HD/SDI production unit. These products have been developed and built in-house by the SIS Live design team based on specific requirements identified and feedback gained in the field. SIS Live will also be promoting its numerous service offerings, which include wireless camera solutions, microwave links, custom-built radio frequency systems, broadcast systems integration services and special cameras. www.sislive.tv
