nab2016

The 2016 National Association of Broadcast (NAB) show held April 18-21 in Las Vegas, NV did not disappoint. The Satellite Industry Forum held a one day conference as part of this show. Focus and discussion was around the role that satellite plays in broadcasting and the delivery of content from virtually anywhere on the planet.

During the show, Norsat highlighted its comprehensive and growing line of BUCs and LNBs for the satellite newsgathering market. With the recent launch of our ATOM 25W KA BUC which started shipping in May, and the 250W KU ATOM BUC, Norsat saw huge interest in these products, as well as our 100W ATOM BUC. Ka-band continues to gain momentum with increased interest in our specialty products including the ATOM 25W and 50W, due to best SWaP (Size, Weight, Power) in the industry. SNG customers were very pleased with the SwaP of the new 250W ATOM BUC (equivalent to a 400W TWTA). Read our blog post here.

Networking with the Movers & Shakers of Asia’s ICT Sector

Another CommunicAsia has wrapped up and this year’s show proved to be another success on our tradeshow ticket. At CommunicAsia2016, Asia’s largest integrated ICT event, the latest technologies in 3D Printing, IoT, M2M, Mobile Apps, OTT and more, were featured. An integral part of CommunicAsia is SatComm2016, the arena for satellite companies to present solutions that address the pressing satellite-based issues.

As in previous years, Norsat participated in the USA pavilion. Showcasing our newest ultra-portable, back packable satellite terminal, the Journey Manpack, our small size, weight and power ATOM BUC line, several of our O3b BUCs product portfolio, as well as some of our RF antenna and conditioning products, the booth was a buzz with activity. Norsat also saw interest in our low cost 5000 Low Noise Block Downconverter PLL series which offer high performance for great value.

Some of the trends we noticed included the proliferation of smaller size dish systems, ranging from 60 to 80cm, and discussions around Low power Ku and C-band BUCs. With new satellites launching in Indonesia soon, we are seeing interest from applications such as the banking industry.

Over the course of the show, it was great to meet and catch up with some of our partners in the region, as well as meet some new prospects and resellers during the four day event. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!
