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.
