The Advent satellite solutions provide cost-effective, high-quality, reliable transmissions within mobile and rapid deployment packages.

“The Advent range is designed to enhance an operator’s mobility by offering maximum performance within a small form-factor and allowing quick deployment for situations across the globe,” says David Robins, Global Sales Director for IMT Vislink. “We are excited to reinvest a significant amount of our time and energy into the research and development of this product line. Our commitment to innovation provides our customers with superior quality video transmission and reception solutions at the lowest latency possible.”

The Advent AirPro 75Ka is a small, lightweight, low-cost, single-button deployment IP satellite data terminal for use with Eutelsat’s Tooway™ service.

The Advent DVE6100 and IRD6200 are the smallest and lightest 4K UHD DVB-S2X exciter and 4K UHD HEVC DVB-S2X IRD on the market. They provide ultra-low latency with multi-mode compression/decompression for MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC with four channel HD capability for resolutions up to 1080p. Both products include a flexible IP streaming engine.

The Advent MSAT is a highly portable, lightweight, tri-band satellite terminal that can be set up anywhere to provide secure and non-secure data and video transmission in as little as five minutes.
