Vislink to introduce motorised MSAT at IBC

IBC2013 will see Vislink unveil the new motorised version of its Advent MSAT satellite terminal. The Advent MSAT is a fully integrated satellite data terminal, capable of supporting either a 90cm or 120cm antenna.

The motorised MSAT follows from the broadcast specification Mantis MSAT earlier this year, and adds the option of a 120cm reflector and data throughput rates of up to 10Mbps. It features simultaneous three-axis motorisation and one button auto acquire, and offers full support for two-way video, voice and data communications.

Stephen Rudd, CEO Vislink International, said, “The Motorised MSAT was developed in response to growing demand from broadcasters for an automated version of our successful Mantis MSAT product. It is ideal for first on scene reporting, providing the perfect balance between the functionality of a full vehicle mounted satellite terminal, and the speed, mobility and versatility needed to make sure you can deliver the first high-definition video images from the scene.”

The motorised MSAT is a full tri-band optioned system that can support X, Ka and Ku band configurations, capable of delivering high definition video and data from anywhere in the world. Part of Vislink’s Advent range of antennas, the motorised MSAT can be tailored to include the Advent DVE5100 H.264 encoder or a customer-specified IP modem fitted into the body of the unit. It meets IATA (International Air Transport Association) weight limits, with the entire unit weighing less than 25Kgs.
