JSAT expands distribution capacity with Snell & Wilcox infrastructure

With Snell & Wilcox's system, program content including embedded audio from the satellite or SDI signal undergoes frame synchronization.

JSAT has purchased a complete set of Snell & Wilcox IQ Modular intelligent infrastructure products for conversion, processing, distribution, and encoding. The company also acquired a Snell & Wilcox RollCall control and monitoring solution for the system.

With Snell & Wilcox's system, program content including embedded audio from the satellite or SDI signal undergoes frame synchronization and is fed to a master switcher for program selection and transmission. Transmitted programs can be monitored when composite video and audio signals received from the satellite downlink are converted to SDI and fed to multi-viewing equipment.

The key IQ Modular System components being used by JSAT include:

  • Module IQDAFS - ensures that SDI signals with embedded audio will be frame-synchronized ready for transmission;
  • Module IQBAAID - enables SDI signals to be reliably embedded with analog audio tracks ready for transmission;
  • Module IQDAMDA - allows distributed analog composite video to be converted into SDI signals and frame-synchronized, ready for transmission.
