New portable uplink system takes lightweight to a whole new level
Advent Communications, a Vislink company, will introduce a new modular satellite uplink that provides data transmission, high-speed Internet and two-way communication with the studio and MPEG-2 video and audio transport.
Four modules make up EXOS. Each weighs about 6.6 pounds and is built for demanding field and transportation conditions.
The modules include:
Data bridge module with broadband IP modem offering always-on connectivity for file transfer, telephone, two way talk-back and video-over-IP option;
Video exciter module, an MPEG-2 DVB-S standard 4:2:0/4:2:2 encoder/modulator/upconverter;
Satfinder module with integral GPS receiver, compass, and satellite position calculation software;
RF power amplifier units in C, Ku or DBS band from 5 watts solid-state to 400W power.
Avent Communications will make the formal introduction of EXOS at the NAB2004 next month.
